It’s been hard to keep up with what is happening in Egypt this post offers one useful insight (although the comments are not really worth reading).
My last trip abroad in 2007 was to Egypt that the only real knowledge about it that I have. My very uninformed impression was that most of the Egyptians I met (who were inevitably almost all middle class and successful) didn’t particularly like the regime but also thought there wasn’t much chance of change any time soon.
As I say I have no special insight but thought that it was worth reading a very different perspective on Egypt to that which you get by going on holiday there.
I did read some of the comments anyway. And re-read them just to make sure they weren't ironic. Jeez – what stone did some of those people crawl out from under?!
Don't say I didn't warn you…
