This article focuses on the Middle Eastern State of Qatar’s UK investments as a back-up or legitimacy seeking exercise rather than a strategic economic imperative per se. With investments in France, Spain (Catalan) and England (notably London), Qatar seems to have inadvertently provided itself with a contingency plan, which has only become clearer to the world following the now resolved estranged relationships with its Arabian Gulf siblings – UAE, KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), Bahrain and also Egypt since June 2016.
