Does anyone else find...

...Richard Ratcliffe a bit too good to be true. I don’t know why but my suspicion antennas twitch every time I listen to him speak.


Not me Fluffs.  I think he is a truly admirable man who is doing everything he can to get his wife out of a situation which is absolutely not of her making and in the face of intransigence, carelessness and incompetence from those who are in a position to do anything about it.

There are others who are in her situation in Iran but we don't hear about them because their families are following the FCO line that "not making a fuss will achieve resolution faster" which is of course bollocks.  It's much more convenient if victims aren't bothersome.

Richard Ratcliffe is being a thorn in everyone's side for no other reason than he loves his wife and he is doing all that he can to get her back.  More power to him!
