Saw Sheikh Mo at the Dubai Career Fair. He is much more attractive than the Queen.

Oooo. Controversial. Well. Personally I don't like the UK and some of the things that it stands for. So I'm gonna have to go for Sheikh Mohammed.

Well I'll have to be Patriotic and say Her Majesty. She's been on the throne for a very long time and has seen her country change in massive ways.

She helped generate £14 Billion pounds of toursim revenue (not all her though) for the UK last year. I also heard she was putting into place plans to build a giant crown shaped artificial island in the English channel

Sheik Mo for his vision and being a good guy from what I have heard and f course looking cool in his beige dish dash.

Queen Liz for being in such a position for so long and toughing it out. She was the ruling monarch during second world war and had to keep churchill in line and sit down and contemplate the country being invaded and over turned by Nazi germany.

She was coronated in 1953 I think, certainly after the war.

Both great in different ways, though the vision of the local ruler is easy to say as when you have that much money you can make anything a reality. That said, his role is so much more hands on than that of the Queen so you can't compare directly.

That's a very debatable topic, and I mean from the 'official' standpoint, not the snooty one.

Mind you my hero is Sheikh Moh.


He's certainly done more than the Queen ever has.
