the good news : “French commandos went in with guns blazing and captured a gang of pirates who days earlier had hijacked a luxury cruise ship”
the bad news : “the British Foreign Office issued a directive to the once vaunted Royal Navy not to detain any pirates, because doing so could violate their human rights. ...captured pirates could claim asylum in Britain”
I'm tempted to pen a letter to No. 10 Downing Street and remind them that Britannia is an island.
