A spy in Dubai

The London Evening Standard has a nice article about the UAE playground of Dubai and how it may or may not be protrayed in the upcoming James Bond novel Carte Blanche by Jeffery Deaver.

The article states that Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum "has already given the go-ahead for the film version of the book (working title: From Dubai With Love) to be shot in Dubai, and even offered his private Boeing 747 to fly in equipment and stars, including Daniel Craig." Okay...

While the article doesn't really revealing anything we don't already know about the use of Dubai in Carte Blanche (which is almost nothing), it is an interesting look at the political and financial issues Dubai has faced in recent years.
