A Baffling Episode...

I don't normally talk about politics, but I am glad all 15 British Royal Navy personnel have made it back to Britain safely after being captured by Iran and held for 13 days. It is the outcome that everyone so desperately wanted but it didn't turn out in the way anyone exp- ected. Granted, it was becoming difficult to see how a solution would be found but the return of the sailors as an Easter 'gift' was not a re- solution that too many people saw coming. While the safe return of our military personnel must be welcomed, we are entitled to feel slightly baffled about what we've learned, who has emerged with most credit and what on earth the point was of the entire episode.

Having said that, I just can't help but think how fun it would be to hold this cute sailor captive for at least a few hours (not that I'm planning to seize him, but it's just one of my fantasies).
