Stricter rent rules for expat bachelors urged
Can’t they just make a law on how to dress instead of kicking them out of the properties?
Good for you Bahrain! It’s so refreshing to hear about a government with some class.
Let’s do this!!!
At first I didn’t get why they were going after bachelors, but after reading the second para I’m all for it.
Bachelor means single man. Stop bachelors from renting and half of the country’s rentals will end, and it’s mainly the extremely wealthy property owners who will suffer. This will never happen.
You initially had issues with drying clothes in balconies, saying it would do something for someone’s mindset; then you targeted shopping malls from displaying clothes saying it will disturb someone. You targeted advertising boards saying hands exposed, yesterday someone said to ban school books because a business lady in the textbook appeared in a business attire. My question is that why don’t you focus on Block 338 in Adliya and have a look at the dress sense over there? You will draft laws on alcohol, dress and many other things, but it will be fine since Block 338 generates money for you! When money comes, you can dilute your concerns and let’s focus on poor expat workers who gets just below BD120 per month. You don’t want bachelors to live in a group, if each of them takes separate flats, more rent and more revenue! So keep doing this!
@naveenantony29 It’s a non-story and just cheap politics. For starters, labourers do not live in rented accommodation. They are given rooms in labour camps. This MP is no different to the likes of Donald Trump and Nigel Farage. Cheap one-liners to get attention.
Non-Bahraini widows living abroad ‘not eligible for pension’
What about their resident visa/permit? Is there any law for non-Bahraini widows and kids?
Our MPs have been on foreigners’ case since they took office. They don’t know ... the very foreigner so-called “maid” in their homes ... if she/he leaves they all go ... half of them will not be able to come to office ... A very common saying: “We should not throw stones at others when we live in house made up of glass”.
Why are all proposals by MPs \always “urgent”? Can’t you guys think ahead?
