    Just heard on BBC Radio - Somali pirates attempted to hijack a French Frigate.

    Now in French Custody.

  2. That should be a very good contender for 'Definition of Utter Stupidity'

    Nice One...
  3. There is perhaps some merit in presuming the Frigate would have just surrendered I suppose.
  4. Weren't expecting a quick surrender were they?
  5. The French will process them and give them a welcome to England pack along with a ferry ticket. :)
  6. They must have thought it was British................! :D

    Hmmm ... listening again on BBC it now says "Seychelles Coastguard have boarded a 6 metre boat carrying fuel and water but no weapons".

    Same story, revised edition?

    What a shame.
