1986 World Cup was take off Colombia in 1985 and given to Mexico so there is a precedent for this.

Colombia couldn’t afford it - the country was broke.

Qatar are in a completely different boat.

He was Stein's assistant for Scotland when he died in Cardiff, a night that had a huge impact on him.
you were probably told to leave an Irish centre one night but kept mouthing off and some big church going Gaa player f**ked you out the door hence your hatred for the Catholic Church and Gaa aswell!

Yeah, not suggesting it's going to happen or situation is comparable. Just pointing out it has been switched previously.

Hi lads, recently returned back from a week long visit to Qatar. Visited some of the World Cup stadia, facilities along with the Aspire Academy and meeting with the commercial director of PSG amongst other things. Prior to visiting I was very apprehensive obviously because of what had been purported in the media. Having returned however I can only say I have been blown away from the experience as a whole. Naturally not everything is running smoothly behind the scenes but it is nowhere near as what we are led to believe.
 
I have written a blog post on the week's events. Attached below is part one. Please feel free to offer feedback I hope it's a good insight as to the country itself and what they have planned in accordance with 2022. Any questions you have please ask, I am only excited to offer any useful insights I may have and elaborate on my experience. Thanks.

I would say the lads building the stadia would have a slightly different view.The ones who are still alive. The dead ones would probably go along with it. They are quite passive about the whole thing.

Find it a bit perverse to be honest, like a propaganda piece.

Fast forward one week and many including yours truly have had our questions answered emphatically

Did they answer your questions about the huge amount of deaths, labour camps and system of bonded labour they utilise to build the stadia? I know you cover it later on but bit worrying to accept it at face value.

 The importance of CSR were ascertained.

You can't be serious....

They could organise the greatest World Cup ever seen and everyone visiting could have a brilliant time. It still doesn't take away from the fact that it is a theocratic, absolute monarchy where people can be flogged for having consensual sex with someone they are not married to, where you can be executed for engaging in homosexual activity or being an apostate from Islam, where if you are a woman who has been raped you can end up in prison for "fornication" and need to have 4 Muslim men to testify that they witnessed the rape to avoid jail, where you can be imprisoned for blasphemy. I'm sure there is plenty I've left out. 

That's before you get onto their use of actual slaves to build their stadiums. You don't address the conditions of the workers or the conditions they live and work in. You devoted one line about the reported death toll among the workers and that was just to state how your hosts told you that the number was grossly exaggerated. I'm sure a bunch of people who have no problem using slave labour wouldn't lie about something like that.
