We are extremely disappointed

With the words,'we are extremely disappointed', Britain's Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, sends a withering, earth crunching, flame ridden, excoriating response to the Iranian regime that has pinched a fully laden oil tanker from under the nose of a Royal Navy frigate. The Iranians will be quaking in their boots.

Such a response is disgraceful. We are not 'disappointed' we are outraged at this gross act of piracy and we will remedy  the situation. And what was the frigate doing, 'ten minutes away'? It should immediately have responded by sending marines to retake the tanker and, if necessary, sink the Revolutionary Guard craft. I hope that the Admiralty look into this with a view to identifying any conduct not upholding the tradition of the Royal Navy.
