Amid rising tensions between Britain and Iran the UK is sending a second warship – HMS Duncan – to the Persian Gulf to join up with one already stationed there – HMS Montrose.
American board game company Hasbro finds itself in a hot water after being forced to admit it is a result of their new ‘life sized’ version of popular game Battleship.
Four British mine hunting vessels are already stationed in the area.
Which is clearly a breach of the rules as mine hunters are not valid playing pieces; next they’ll be lying about being hit. Unconfirmed reports claim the UK sent somebody to walk behind Iran to find out where they had put the submarines.
There have been two sets of attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and a British owned oil ship was forced towards Iranian waters.
Hasbro admit that in hindsight their new game might be just a touch lethal but maintain their need to follow it through to financial success. This is down to the huge losses they made on ‘Real World Monopoly’ when they were unable to recoup money invested in constructing Mayfair hotels as they were inexplicably sent to jail.
The conflict comes as a result of the UK’s seizure of an Iranian ship last week which was thought to be heading to Syria. Iran claim this was done ‘at the behest of’ the US government.
A White House spokesperson stated this couldn’t be the case as President Trump doesn’t know what behest means.
