According to The Times the British couple, Paul and Rachel Chandler, who were floating around the Horn of Africa and captured by pirates, could be dead within days.
Alright execution, be it beheading, which seems popular in that part of the world, or a bullet in the back of the head might be a bit harsh, but why the hell were the nitwits there in the first place? Bored with floating around the Solent and the Med? Got jippy tummy last time they floated around the Caribbean maybe? Perhaps it was a case of wanting to get off the tourist route, well the idiots certainly did that.
Perhaps they were indignantly reading The Grauniad one morning with their muesli and thought how hard done by those Yemenis and Somalis were, and what a totally unjustified bad press they were getting. So they decided to show the bloody West how hospitable they really were and grabbed their wellies and pointed the good yacht Plonker in an easterly direction.
Now they have discovered that the local hospitality costs several million pounds, of our money in the form of a ransom. Or we use our tax money on schools and hospitals and they pay the with their heads for there stupidity and irresponsibility. Bloody clowns.
