We`ve had Nigerians, South Africans and Yanks so why not a Kuwaiti? The latest update to the grand takeover plan has led us back on the Middle Eastern trail to Saddam Hussein`s takeover target. A Kuwaiti newspaper revealed today that Nasser Al-Kharafi, 65, who built his £8.13bn fortune with exclusive franchise deals across the Middle East for Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut, Wimpy and TGI Fridays, as well as a huge construction empire could be the main man in NE1. He is now the world’s 48th richest man. A source commented:

‘He cannot comment on any deal because he has signed the confidentiality agreements which binds all interested parties. But he has the money to make it work.’
