Iranian Hostage Crisis: Blair Acts

With the Iranian hostage crisis threatening to become a full-blown diplomatic stand-off, under-pressure PM Tony Blair has contacted counterpart Mahmoud Ahmadinejad with a unique solution.

"I've asked President Ahmadinejad to consider a hostage swap," confirmed Blair, "...there are up to 15 young fit English men already in the Middle East and frankly of no use to anyone in this country whatsoever."

"I've enough knowledge of world history to appreciate that devastating and unnecessary wars can result from seemingly innocuous acts," mulled Blair, "...World War One began with the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, so it's appropriate perhaps that I'm offering up Rio Ferdinand."

"After they again shamed the nation with a bore draw in Israel, I have asked Major General McClaren to send his underperforming and overpaid squad straight to Tehran," the PM confirmed, "'s time to bring our soldiers home."
