Egypt's stability is in the interest of all parties

Egypt's politicians on both sides have failed to show a path forward out of this perpetual state of uncertainty.

The Port Said football violence encapsulates much of the uncertainty of Egypt's post-revolution crisis. Last February, fighting between supporters of Cairo's Al Ahly and Port Said's Al Masry clubs escalated into one of the worst nights of bloodshed in Egypt's tumultuous past two years.

The visiting Al Ahly fans appeared to have been targeted by an organised assault, possibly with the complicity of the security personnel who turned a blind eye. There are many unanswered questions. Was this just an extreme example of fan violence? Or were authorities, then headed by the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, seeking revenge against Al Ahly fans who had participated in anti-government protests?

The death sentence brought against 21 people on Saturday signally failed to provide satisfactory answers, although Al Ahly supporters who had been baying for blood did celebrate. On the one hand, many believed the verdict was deeply political, targeting Al Masry supporters to appease protesters. At the same time, the capital sentences spared security officials and police, leading others to presume that the investigation had been superficial at best, deliberately deceptive at worst.

Egyptians have little faith in the institutions of this postrevolutionary order. In part, that can be blamed on the periodic outbursts of violence - at least 40 were killed over the weekend, in protests marking the second anniversary of the revolution and in the Port Said riots after the verdict. But equally to blame is a failure of leadership, in which political skirmishing has eclipsed national interests.

Many blame President Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood allies. Their refusal to compromise has raised justifiable fears for Egypt's supposedly representative democracy. And, at the end of the day, the government must take responsibility for security lapses that happen during its watch - as long as the generals don't try to take power again.

Given the sense of insecurity, not to mention the abysmal economic situation, the opposition National Salvation Front may have a persuasive case to make that Mr Morsi has failed in the job. And yet the NSF can't stay focused on the task at hand - at the height of violence on Saturday, the opposition announced that it would boycott parliamentary elections later this year unless its demands are met. Even NSF supporters must be frustrated at this unhelpful lack of direction.

The opposition - and the government, for that matter - must realise that there are priorities that transcend their rivalries. Ending the violence on the streets has to be paramount. The opposition has to contest the next elections, not play politics as blood runs in the streets.

The £10,000 (Dh50,000) payment is made to those riders who have completed the highest number of orders in each market.

There are also riders who will receive payments of £1,000 (Dh5,000) and £500 (Dh2,500).

All riders who have worked with Deliveroo for at least one year and completed 2,000 orders will receive £200 (Dh1,000), the company said when it announced the scheme.

How the bonus system works

The two riders are among several riders in the UAE to receive the top payment of £10,000 under the Thank You Fund of £16 million (Dh80m), which was announced in conjunction with Deliveroo's £8 billion (Dh40bn) stock market listing earlier this year.

Teachers' pay - what you need to know

Pay varies significantly depending on the school, its rating and the curriculum. Here's a rough guide as of January 2021:

- top end schools tend to pay Dh16,000-17,000 a month - plus a monthly housing allowance of up to Dh6,000. These tend to be British curriculum schools rated 'outstanding' or 'very good', followed by American schools

- average salary across curriculums and skill levels is about Dh10,000, recruiters say

- it is becoming more common for schools to provide accommodation, sometimes in an apartment block with other teachers, rather than hand teachers a cash housing allowance

- some strong performing schools have cut back on salaries since the pandemic began, sometimes offering Dh16,000 including the housing allowance, which reflects the slump in rental costs, and sheer demand for jobs

- maths and science teachers are most in demand and some schools will pay up to Dh3,000 more than other teachers in recognition of their technical skills

- at the other end of the market, teachers in some Indian schools, where fees are lower and competition among applicants is intense, can be paid as low as Dh3,000 per month

- in Indian schools, it has also become common for teachers to share residential accommodation, living in a block with colleagues

'Worse than a prison sentence'

Marie Byrne, a counsellor who volunteers at the UAE government's mental health crisis helpline, said the ordeal the crew had been through would take time to overcome.

“It was worse than a prison sentence, where at least someone can deal with a set amount of time incarcerated," she said.

“They were living in perpetual mystery as to how their futures would pan out, and what that would be.

“Because of coronavirus, the world is very different now to the one they left, that will also have an impact.

“It will not fully register until they are on dry land. Some have not seen their young children grow up while others will have to rebuild relationships.

“It will be a challenge mentally, and to find other work to support their families as they have been out of circulation for so long. Hopefully they will get the care they need when they get home.”
