Ignorance of the Arab world
Although she might mean well being worried about the "British fortitude and integrity", she obviously has no idea how a country like Kuwait is run.
Her opinions about "Arab countries" are rather simplified and show a lack of knowledge of the Arab world.
She shouldn't confuse a country such as Kuwait with any Third World country. Even after the Gulf war of two years ago, Kuwait remains a very rich nation.
In Kuwait, for example, people know about hygiene (in fact, in an Islamic country, it is a priority).
Well-built houses and schools in which the inside is protected against sand and dust do exist; and most Arab people certainly do sleep in beds.
I am a teacher from Holland who lived and worked in inner London for about three years. I am the last person to make a fuss about luxury.
I feel strongly insulted when Ms Denton accuses me of "spineless whingeing".
The conditions in this school (and I am not talking about other schools in Kuwait, or anywhere else in the world) were humiliating, not only for the teachers, but also for the Kuwaiti children and parents.
