You know, unless I’ve gone as doolally as social care minister Jackie Doyle-Price, I think that’s precisely what happened.
In 1970, the political and social atmosphere of Oman changed with the advent of a new ruler, Sultan Qaboos bin Said, son of the conservative and rigid Said bin Taimur.
After decades of stagnant to non-existent growth, Qaboos overthrew his father in a palace coup and immediately began numerous social programs, commissioning hospitals, clinics, schools, etc.
Sultan Qaboos introduced many reforms funded mostly by the oil revenue, targeting development and social services.
He also appointed the Majlis al-Shura (Consultative Council), a body of representatives elected by the people that review legislation.
