OK, I’m sure we are all familiar with corporate meetings that get out of hand, but what the hell is a Beirut-like meeting? Unfortunately we’ll never know as the comment was made by a nameless insider:

THE ORGANISATION which governs North Wales football has been left in disarray after eight of its officers quit – leaving two in charge.

[…]

The resignations follow many years of internal fighting over moves to block individuals being “co-opted” on to the Association and proposals to change the rules and reduce players’ fines.

One insider told the Daily Post that one of the meetings was “like Beirut.”

Who ever you are, I would really like to send you a “Looks Like Beirut” certificate so if you can send me you name and address, I’ll be sure to dispatch it immediately.
