DUBAI: As a journalist, it is George Fulton’s job to provide unbiased information but he has failed to do that. I have lived in Dubai for 28 years now and it is trendy and vibrant.

The very people who are supposed to protect us are not harassing us. We are safer, more secure, precisely because of this police state. Women are able to go out at any time of day alone without being harassed. There is law and order and a generally safe environment.
