Has parliament TOTALLY lost the effing plot? You decide... Consider trying Somali pirates, MPs urge | Reuters "(Reuters) - The British government should consider bringing Somali pirates to Britain for trial, MPs said on Thursday, accusing the government of not doing enough to tackle a problem that cost $135 million (86 million pounds) in ransoms last year alone. Parliament's Foreign Affairs Committee also called on the government -- which recently announced it will permit British merchant ships sailing off Somalia to carry armed guards -- to state clearly when these guards may legally open fire." So they want to bring the pirates into Britain and try them at a British court? So a problem which currently costs £86 million a year, will cost £500 million in legal fees next year? Plus, there will be a hell of a lot more piracy about, it beats all that travelling to europe off your own back, eh?
