Here is some picture of the doubters. But this topic has been gnawed bones! I even think that Rashid's only victim. I look forward to he come back. I think he is much better than Hamdan.
For me, Hamdan has a better profile of a future ruler
Eventhough, Rashid has a much more strong personnality i guess, he would be a selfish & strict ruler...just saying
When Hamdan is rather more calm & warmful, maybe he's not like that, but atleast thats what we feel toward him.

This is quite a heated discussion going on, and I personally have never understood the anger and strong opinionated comments tommy1, seems to have against Rashid, because it is a re-occuring theme pattern with him. I'm just curious is all...

I can only say that it has nothing to do with the employment dismissal case against the Al-Maktoum estate in the UK, and my personal opinion is that these rumors about Rashid do not ring true to me. In his last recent pictures he looks rather healthy and muscular and smiling with his siblings, and not thin, haggard, and anxious looking like a drug addict. That's just my opinion, and we have no proof that he is a drug addict, and just some off colour comment by a reporter in an article unrelated to Rashid himself is not enough for me to be convinced that he has a problem with drugs.

Personally I admire Rashid for the name he has made for himself in horse racing at such a young age.

Good for maddytravels for sticking up for herself and her comments...I also wish we could see more of Rashid in the public eye.

And I am also curious to know in what context tommy1 "knows" Rashid as he claims...I mean he always puts that out there on the forums, but never goes deeper into how he met/knows him. Yet he has very strong emotional responses to any posts regarding Rashid. Personally, I find that behavior very intriguing.

Unless the complaints of all 3 people are settled out of court, then we may hear a great deal more. Let's see.

Even if this employee is saying the truth or not, we have the right of doubting specially that its very easy to invent things about those people.
But none can deny that those sheikhs do bad things & dont respect their own rules, & some of them use their power to humilate people, but of course not all of them, i do believe that generalizations are all false including this one

Totally agree with you! I think no one's a angel but just talking about the whole family or all sheikhs is not fair since so many of them seem to be pretty nice and down to earth and do a lot of charity etc.
I also think that we may never will know the truth about the employee-story (if they lied or if it's true) so it doesn't help anything if we judge about them now. :)

Does anyone know something about Hamdanīs uncle Saeed (his mothers brother) ? Because Hamdan seems to be very close to him and he is seen at so many events and trips with Mo and Hamdan... he seems to be at all the races and also at many other official and private events... does he have any official role in Dubai?

Well normally they are more than once in Britain (especially London) every year. Dunno if all of the maktoum family are there. But Maryam bint Mohammed is there and her Sis Sheikha and her Husband are there as well. Don't know about the rest but guess they are there too as it is too hot in Dubai right now and a lot of locals love to go to europe (london) during the summer months.

Dubai Ruler inaugurates metro Green Line

DUBAI // Two years to the day after becoming the Gulf region's first mass-transit rail system, the Dubai Metro has opened its second line.

The Green Line, which covers 22.5 kilometres and 20 stations, was inaugurated yesterday afternoon by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Great pictures!It looks really cool,next time I visit DXB I will try out the metro :-)
I saved the pictures cause Iīm sure the Maktoum family will rather stick with big cars,especially Hamdan and Mohammed.If Hamdan uses public transport he will always be knocked out by a large group of girls who want his telephone number *lol*

I looked at the pictures several times but I canīt see a golden necklace,can you provide a link to the special picture,Burzg? I havenīt seen the sheikhs with much accessories,they only wear watches on their wrists but maybe they also have charm necklaces that bring luck to them or something with the name of their wife engraved into it-I donīt know....However Iīve seen Sheikh Mohammed using a Tasbih, (or Masbaha/Subha?) - some kind of muslim prayer chain!
