Female TV Presenter Flees Saudi Arabia

A Saudi Arabian TV presenter has fled the country after an investigation was launched into claims she had violated the kingdom’s dress code for women.

Shereen Al-Rifaie is accused of recording a segment on women finally being allowed to drive in Saudi Arabia in an outfit deemed ‘indecent’ by the Saudi General Commission for Audiovisual Media.

The presenter wore a white abaya – a traditional Muslim robe-like dress – which opened to reveal white trousers and a top underneath in the TV segment.

Her hair was somewhat covered by a loose white scarf, but her dark locks could be seen by her hairline and flowing down her back.

She was reporting on the lifting of the longstanding ban on women driving in the conservative Muslim kingdom, which took place this month.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
