Well not quite breakfast but an unrelated males sitting with a woman whilst eating breakfast is.
An Egyptian man in Saudi Arabia has been arrested after a video of him having breakfast with a woman went viral on Twitter.
In the video, a man with an Egyptian dialect eats breakfast beside a womanwearing a full face veil, who many assumed to be Saudi.
This is in contravention of the law in Saudi Arabia, where in workplaces or eateries like McDonald's and Starbucks, families and single men have to sit in different areas.
Women must sit separately from single men in these places.
They are not allowed to exercise most activities without being accompanied by their male guardians, usually a father or husband, but possibly a brother or a son.
dear God, Saudi Arabia should be shunned by every other country until the drag themselves out of the 15th century.
Oh, and the article didn’t explain how she managed to eat breakfast with a full face veil. Poor reporting from the So-Called BBC there

Following on from comment in the World Cup thread, it would be interesting to see and collect the views of Great Britain, its people, politicians, culture, achievements, direction... as seen from afar.
Are we revered, a laughing stock or just meh? Is Rule Britannia afloat, listing or sinking below the waves?
Do other nations have a Health Service that is so policised and integral to political campaigns?
Are other nations proud and protective of their culture or ashamed of it?

Given the clips we have seen in the media concerning the lack of driving skills by some sections on the ‘community ‘ I’m not convinced that this is a good move. Anyhow
al-Sonosi’s new red Range Rover has been sitting in her driveway for two months, its engine only started for brief, furtive trips around the block. Just after midnight on Saturday, both Sonosi and her car will no longer have to hide.
A goal she had aspired to for most of her life – to drive herself wherever she pleased – will become a reality for Sonosi, as well as for a selected minority ofother women in Saudi Arabia, who for the first time will legally be able to take to the roads.
sounds good until we get to the bit in the article where it explains restrictions are still in place
Sonosi is one of 30 women in Jeddah, the kingdom’s second city, to have been granted a licence. Many thousands more have applied. Those allowed to drive have been carefully selected. The politics of women driving, and who gets to claim credit for it, has become increasingly loaded.
i suppose its ok as long as they don’t want to bring their medieval and misogynistic views over here. Oh wait....
