This is about the warning by the British Government to British Citizens not to bare their tops when in the UAE. What I find rather weird is that the Brits quickly found a voice via Gulf News to complain about this (complaining is a national pastime in the UK) and the tone of the article implies that the Brits are angry at the gulfies for having this rather negative opinion that they tend to take off their clothes when in fact the finger should point to the Europeans (again they imply that Brits are not Europeans).. oh well..
I tend to agree that continental Europeans (e.g. French, Italians, Spaniards, etc) tend to have more relaxed rules about sunbathing, but I strongly believe this is another piece of rubbish journalism that should not exist. Instead perhaps Gulf News should forward the voices of these angry Brits towards the UK Embassy in Dubai or David Milliband himself at the FCO.
Honestly, it's a completely internal British matter.
