Hang Loose in the Untied Arab Emirates (UAE)

This news was Twittered this week by Joan of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) in Vancouver.

She wrote: “Biggest typo of the day—seen on the script prepared for broadcasting on Canadian radio: ‘The Untied Arab Emirates.’”

Joan said, it was her colleague, Craig, who made the Freudian slip or was he being prophetic?

Is the United Arab Emirates loosening up a little or do you think things are tightening up, what with law enforcement in regard to expat arrests and men in Sharjah having their jewelry confiscated?
