In the UK, tonnes of folk are drawing benefits, not working and having all their debts picked up by our current bankrupt government slowly going down the drain fast! For those who are honest and work hard for their country, they seem to be forgotten, it's an unfair world. When the unrest started here, two of my friends who used to work in Bahrain e-mailed me. These expats came, made their pile and moved away.
As soon as the unrest started they send me moaning letters. I reminded them, like everyone, they had come for a better life and they should show some loyalty for the time they were here. I was accused of being 'smug'. Maybe I am but I am loyal to the country which has given me a good life and happiness with so many friends from every religion.
And that's a point worth mentioning. The doctrine in most religions is 'loving and caring for your neighbours'. In today's world this universal doctrine seems to be pushed aside for material and individual gains. Let's not divide Bahrain into the haves and have-nots, with the present generous handouts to aid the poorer side of the community, let everyone be loyal to Bahrain.
