The Telegraph reports that British ministers are planning to offer Iran a "face-saving" deal for the safe return of the kidnapped British sailors.
Ministers are preparing a compromise deal to allow Iran to save face and release its 15 British military captives by promising that the Royal Navy will never knowingly enter Iranian waters without permission.
I can not believe that this can be considered acceptable by Britain? The idea that Britain must humiliate itself - having already been humiliated by Iran - simply in order to allow a bunch of raving, apocalypse loving scum to save face is beyond reason. Who cares if Iran are humiliated - does anyone seriously believe they worry about us in the same way?
The one promise we should make Iran is that if the British sailors are not released within 24 hours then the Royal Navy will be entering Iranian waters in force.
