With the unprecedented orgy of demolition underway in Doha, one wonders what will become of the millions of neo-vagrant cockroaches and other bugs. Displaced people get rehoused, or herded off to labour camps, depending on their status. But nobody's rehousing the roaches, at least not intentionally, though I'm sure more than a few will have taken up residence unannounced, in the juice bars and cafes that have so far avoided the bulldozers. There's a crisis in the making here. Unless someone builds a roach sanctuary soon, the poor waifs will have no choice but stow away in the foundations of the new Dohaland, pending completion of the project, where their luxury accommodation awaits them.
And that would never do.
