Bahrainis are being urged to dig deep into their pockets to support cash-strapped ministers.

According to a report in yesterday's Gulf Daily News: "the Premier would receive a monthly basic salary of BD5,500, his deputies BD4,500 each and ministers would each get BD3,500.

"Those salaries would increase annually by three per cent.

"All Cabinet members would be given a monthly representation allowance of BD500.

"They will be also each get a car for official, as well as land and mobile phones and an Internet line."

haha

NO COMMENT! Well actually I have a lot to say but will bite my tongue for a while. Enough said!

off topic... I read your column in the GDN about New York and the problems you faced there. I'm sorry about this, but please know that not all places treat ppl so poorly.

My husband faced some probs when we went to California this past February. When we went thru customs it took FOREVER for them to finish w/ him. There were tons of questions but mainly just the 'making us wait' kind of thing. Nothing like what you experienced.

New Yorkers are rude ppl... they're known for that, but it sounds like this guy and his goons topped the cake. Not everyone in the U.S. is as arrogant and stupid. I hope it doesn't sour you on future trips to other parts of the country.

By the way it was mentioned in today's (11th July) Akhbar AlKhaleej that the new approved salaries for the cabinet are as follows: PM - 8,000 per month
DPM - 6,000
Ministers 5,000
State officials ranked as ministers 3,500

and a rep allowance of bd 1,000

oh and the annual increment is 5%

by the way I have been following your blog for a while now, keep it up!
