It's the double standards employed as well, as I can guarantee that if I drove into Knightsbirdge on a summer eve in my 135 and drove like these guys do, I would be prosecuted by the Police within a very short space of time.

Some personal observations on this.

New money messing with old money, you see it everywhere. Old money does not like how the new money expresses itself in public and you do not get as old as London money that is for sure.

The Arabs/Muslin are the biggest hypocrite as you can get. Let see their religions and beliefs say they are not allow to do any of what you see in video, but it is okay as long as they do not do it in their own country and since they have money it is okay.

Think about what will happen when their oil runs out, and it will, their whole economy is based on oil. The other problem they have is they are investing in the US and other Euro countries. So they are dependent on what happens in our countries. They will learn what other countries like Japan learned when you overly invest in the US. When our economy tanks they will tank even harder. American do not have any problem selling over inflated property to people from other countries and when things go bad, buy it back at pennies on the $.

Yup, not just in London.. their other favorite destination is Beirut (it is closer).
They march in there thinking they are the best thing to happen to the world since indoor plumbing. They sincerely lack common courtesies sometimes. When their season is in full swing, certain areas become a no-go zone just to avoid them.

As for the Ramadan period, they basically have to fast so long as the sun is up. But what these guys do is they sleep ALL day and wake up 10mins before they can eat, pig out like it was Thanksgiving on steroids every day until Ramadan is over. Beirut caters to it by having some Lebanese restaurants open 24hours during that period. They miss the whole point.

But on the other side, I feel for them with the cops harassing them and people spitting on their cars or what not. Not cool.

Not exactly.

The police would actually love to do something about it, it's the politics higher up the food chain that dictate they prioritise their resources on other things.....

"it's only for a short period of time, not doing any real harm...etc.,etc.........oh and they spend a shed load of money while they're over here" is the view from 'above'...

I dont feel bad for the old people. They are some of the wealthiest families in London and complain about the wealthiest families from the Gulf. Everyone but them enjoys the economic boost.

There was a comment made they never spoke to the drivers. I guarantee you in a weird way they look forward to this every year so they can all get together and complain about something.

Also there were so many racist undertones it was almost sick to watch at some points. And when the old guy got hit with the umbrella he didnt have to be a dick, his reaction to that was enough for me to smile knowing he cant sleep at night because the roar of a V10 is shaking his precious china.

Just my 2 Cents!

That was very interesting. Not really sure what to say. Except I thought it was funny when the old lady thought everyone should have a "silencer" on their cars.

very well said.

i think its old money being very jealous about new money. if they have such a big problem with this issue, they can always move to the country side and live on a ranch. you cant expect to live downtown in a busy shopping district and demand absolute silence all the time.

i live downtown in montreal and it gets noisy as hell here sometimes but thats the price you pay for living downtown. i am not going to complain about it.

Speed bumps in downtown London? Traffic efficiency in that city would degrade immensely.

And cobble stone roads and bad for the old ladies' backs.

so this makes it all acceptable, we can enjoy the rest of out lives with cheap oil, while they are locked up in their sand castles with their harems and occasioanal desert picnic doling out money to begging subjects.. better than 'war on terror' for sure

Just don't come to HK (actually we already have resident idiots with straightpipes and no decency, whereelse can one shitty combustion engine be heard by a million people at 5am?)

I was agreeing with you, just making a sarcastic point..

I don't know, I would imagine ferraris and lambos, but I can't see them but you can hear one car from most of kowloon peninsula where everyone is packed in tight and its otherwise quiet at night.
sometimes Japanese r(a/i)cers are noisy two, but those are with stupid exhausts that sounds like someone left a phone next to a massive subwoofer with the power on

Would not like that one bit. I used to live in Ma, where the streets are just barely big enough for 2 cars and I there are two idiots playing chicken right in front of my house that side swiped 2 of my neighbors cars opposite of me and took off.

that is BS
they are allowed up to 4 wives so they can keep doing this under pretense they are looking for their next wife.
I've seen this. They send their veiled wive to shop with her overseer at the most expensive shops, while they go doing this. The men party, the women stay home.
