You'd think so. So why the hell do they trot out a headline like this?
Iran 'frees more British staff'
See what they did there? A glance at the headline and it seems those dastardly turbanned johnny foreigner Iranimaniacs have taken hostage British citizens. Except they aren't British citizens, they are Iranians who work at the British Embassy.
Propaganda and double-speak on behalf of the corrupt and immoral British government.
