    So let me get this right now....

    We've just had a spat with our closest ally, the U.S.
    We're about to sever ties with our major trading partner, the EU.
    We're jousting with a volatile middle-eastern nuclear power with our one and only ship in the Gulf...
    We held up that Iranian tanker at Gibraltar on the premise that it violates EU (yes, please don't laugh) sanctions.

    So, it begs the question : why? Why?

    It's all a bit messy. The EU is keeping low key about the Iranian tanker as they don't want to upset the UK during Brexit. However, the EU have said that there is no mandate to interject Iranian oil tankers. Indeed, the Iranian news has stated outright that the tanker was interjected by order of Trump and not the EU. Just to stir up matters, Iran has two forms of government running in parallel being the elected government and the supreme-leader with his revolutionary guard. The revolutionary guard are a law unto themselves and I have no doubt they are causing trouble with the shipping in the PG; the Iranian government will never admit that they don't have control over the revolutionary guard.

    The tanker was heading to Syria, which is covered by EU sanctions. The fact that the tanker originated in Iran is somewhat irrelevant, surely?

    It's not just the US saying that. MI6 and lots of other people who know what they're talking about are saying pretty much the same about Huawei.

    Has May been bribed with a free upgrade?

    MI6 are also saying do something about the Chinese or no trade deal? Looks like U.K. sovereignty is up for sale to anyone.
