Ok, so we all know what to expect, generally, from the readers of the Daily Mail.

But some of the comments on this article about Diz and other people held in Dubai are just mind boggling.

Sounds like they have got it right in Dubai.

and

Sounds good to me - build more prisons and import these drug prevention controls here please. Many lives would be saved.

and

Good on these authorities for actually enforcing the law of the land, I have no pity for the suspects and criminals whom they have caught, some ignorant, some stupid and some simply brazen. It seems that suspect "profiling" is alive, well and working effectively in some parts of the world.

It's a shame that our own establishment is so weak by comparison.

Fucking idiots.

My favourite comment so far has to be:

I can understand a zero tolerance approach to substance abuse, but this is just anal. What do they expect someone to do with .003g of hash - get an ant high?
- Dave, England


The good thing is that word is getting out, which is bloody brilliant.

Let's just hope that Diz and the others held in similar circumstances can come home soon.
