Yesterday, I heard that Talal’s new Range Rover has the registration number 15 1515. It does not take much to realise that this spells out the words, “Is ISIS”.
Footnote added June 23rd: It’s true. I didn’t take pictures because it was parked directly outside his office and there’s security cameras everywhere (one employee even told me there’s a camera in the men’s toilet!). I really don’t think I can add anything to that other than to say that given the current crisis (June 23rd – crew unpaid again), seeing Talal’s shiny brand new USD$200,000-plus Range Rover parked outside with this numberplate has done nothing to improve Talal’s reputation amongst the international crew.
