Making humour out of the Iran situation.

The days roll by and 15 British service personnel are still being held in Iran. The news is not very upbeat and nobody appears to be offering any jokes to lighten the ongoing situation. Mark Steel however can be relied upon to bring some satire to this story...

This is a possibility everyone's missed - maybe the Iranians, in an effort to show the West how modern they've become, thought they'd put our marines in a house they couldn't escape from and show them each day on television in an Anglo-Iranian Big Brother. Now we've seen all of them, it will be time to start voting them off. The next broadcast will start with a voice telling us: "It's 4.57pm and Faye is still smoking in front of the map."

Chuckle, chuckle!
