We've listened to the pathetic whimpering of this woman for six years, now she's back home to slag off the Gov that paid her hostage fee.   She chose to go to Iran, despite HMG warnings of a safety risk,  so this self centred, entitled woman has only herself to blame for her plight; and should be thankful to get bought out of prison.     😠

I think spending such a long time in captivity and given the circumstances, it doesn’t surprise me one bit that she might be a bit miffed off. The government claim it wasn’t about the money they’d withheld since 1970 and it was a pure coincidence that as soon as it was paid, she was released. Well, anyone who believes that will believe anything.

The £400million deal was with the previous Shah's Regime, and was withheld post Islamic Revolution as part of western sanctions.  The Iranians had done a hostage for money swap with the Yanks, which obviously wetted their appetite for such extortion.  :rolleyes:
