I don't understand the fuss about the British couple who were jailed for having sex on a public beach in Dubai. They were warned about their conduct and when they persisted they were arrested and charged.
From the way this is being reported you'd think that if the same thing happened here it would have been perfectly acceptable. It wouldn't be. It is against the law to have sex in public on a British beach too. Or anywhere else for that matter. OK, you probably wouldn't go to jail for it, but that's hardly the point.
If you are in someone else's country, you play by their rules, whether you like it or not.
Did I tell you I tell you I am going to Israel in ten days' time? Perhaps I should find out what their rules are. My hotel is on the beach... Ahem. Shall I stop digging?
