The latest pictures of the naval hostages released today on the BBC show them dressed in garish and ill-fitting tracksuits. Clearly this is a psychological tactic to humiliate our military personnel. On the other hand, their uniforms could probably do with a wash by now.
I was also disturbed the other day to see the captives pictured in front of what appeared to be a rather nasty floral shower curtain.
The Iranian Revolutionary Guards need to tread carefully. You can push the British so far, but no further.
