Britain leads

On Saturday 31st October, 2015 a Russian passenger plane crashed in the Sinai desert, reason unknown. Over the weekend the wreckage and bodies from the aircraft were found. It was eventually announced that all 224 people on board had probably perished.

On Wednesday 4th November, 2015 David Cameron PM suspended flights to & from Sharm el-Sheikh and it seemed that the world was against him. The media reported 20,000 British tourists were now stuck in Egypt, this at the same time the PM was seeing the Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi in London on a state visit. It started to become very acrimonious.

On Friday 6th November, 2015 in the morning the Russians were still castigating the UK on their earlier decisions, then in the afternoon they also suspend all passenger flights to & from Egypt. They were then followed by the Germans, French, Dutch and Belgians and now presumably by every other country that has flights to Egypt.

It would appear that British foreign policy has been vindicated.
