Hot Takes #FBPE 13h
US justice department issue a warrant to search , the Iranian-owned ship seized by the UK, likely to Iran's anguish. This follows a Gibraltar Judge ordering its release as Iran promised its $140m cargo would not go to Syria as to not break the IEEPA agreement.

“There’s no sanctions on the import of crude oil into Syria - only on aviation fuel. So this vessel was illegally boarded, cargo illegally impounded, senior officers illegally arrested, and they wonder why Iran is hot under collar about it?” | ICYMI |

That's it for me, I think the Royal Navy and SAS should be taking that tanker back by force now...piss taking fuckers ceasing a British flagged ship and hoisting up their own flag. C

An Iranian official has said a British oil tanker should be seized if the detained Iranian oil ship is not released soon. Mohsen Rezaei said Iran would respond to bullies "without hesitation".

Your reminder the the Govt's 'COBRA' meetings aren't so named to create some sexy Bond-esque sense of menace but are in fact named after the room they're convened in... Cabinet Office Briefing Room A (I bet the seats are shit too)

Penny Mordaunt says the hi-jacked British tanker was "in Omani waters". But can we believe someone who said, in the EU referendum, that the UK had no veto on Turkey's joining the EU? One big lie that undermines confidence in her truthfulness.

EU seems to have forgotten UK seized Iranian vessel in Gibraltar as it violated EU sanctions. UK have had to request that EU get behind UK in the Strait of Hormuz, as so far there has been little action from EU. Wrong signal sent out to other EU member.

When did the UK demote itself to the 51st State of the USA? Shame on us. Shame on the media for selling us out.

So I guess we do nothing about Iran seizing 2 of our tankers (which are now flying the Iran Flag) Apparently Defence Secretary Tobias Ellwood says the British Navy isn’t big enough to deal with the threat from Iran! What have we become!

If you only read one thing today on the crisis, then read this on how an inattentive UK has been suckered into supporting a hawkish strategic position which we have little to gain from

Has anyone interviewed Johnson on because, blink and you'd miss it if they have. All I've heard is Hunt being a wee bit bewildered.

This second hijacking of a tanker by Iran looks suspiciously ‘staged’. It happened last Wednesday; no one has said that they are missing a tanker; no details released? It stinks

Trump's response: We have no written agreement with the UK over this situation, but Britain's a great ally and we'll see what we can do to help. Thanks Trumpy! We only did it because you asked us to. Now you say it's fuck all to do with you.

I’ve worked out how the can fix issue today, not in 5-10years. Park a ‘tank’ on every civvy tanker. Job jobbed. 😏
