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.
