Anyone watched this on Sky (on demand) ?

Interesting stuff, can't say it paints Qatar that well.

Enjoyed it as programme with the right intentions but answers were probably already prepared before the questions were asked.

I haven't seen much said so far but should this current situation with Iran escalate then surely the chances of the world cup happening in Qatar are growing smaller by the day?

Sky can hardly take the moral high ground after coining it in with the recent "clash on the dunes"

Depends how many basically trained monkeys the Iranians decide are fit to man their archaic air defence systems really.

That'll happen in most walks of life, it's why a better journalist should've gone to ask the questions and press them with facts about what has happened and is happening surrounding the bid and building of it all

I doubt the events in Iran will have any impact. Well unless a world war breaks out

The only thing that will happen is the Yanks will steamroller themselves into Tehran and it'll only take a week or two. A week or so of bombing the shite out of them using weapons the Iranians have never heard of then they'll walk into the capital with very little resistance left.
Iran will then have, a year or whatever later, a fuck tonne of 'terrorists' fighting and blowing each other up to try and take control of regions within it.

😄 Considered political analysis always welcome.
 
Muslims in general in middle east, when you have a religion that basically makes women 2nd class citizens then hardly surprising.
I hate it when people put women on a pedestal like that :lol:.

Seriously my mate's wife works there and doesn't have a lot of bother. They did have to fly into Doha via Iran last week though since all Qatar's neighbours have closed their airspace :eek:

Saw it before Xmas and Neville was really good in it. At one point he joins in playing football with some African lads, who are labourers over there, and has a chat with them. finds out that they are going to lose their bond and promptly gets it back for them.

After the story we all read about him giving shelter to the homeless in Manchester a year or two back in one of his old buildings due for renovation after they had originally squatted the lad has something about him. Personally think he is a canny lad and a good pundit.
