British Foreign Secretary Margaret a Beckett has roled up her sleeves and weighed in on the kidnapped British sailors issue. Mrs Beckett has confirmed that a British diplomatic note had been sent to the Iranians. "I think everyone regrets that this position has arisen. What we want is a way out of it – we want it peacefully and we want it as soon as possible." Baaaaaaaaaaa.. !
Meanwhile, a group of some 700 peace loving civilised people staged a brief demonstration in the Iranian capital Friday against the U.K. and the 15 U.K. sailors being held by Iran. Leaving Tehran University campus after Friday prayers (What better time?) the protesters "spontaneously" walked a few hundred meters down the road chanting "Death to Britain!" and "We condemn the British invasion!"
