UK Government Advises Britons to Leave Yemen

Yemen: British nationals strongly advised to leave immediately

Negotiations between the President and the opposition have broken down, things will likely get nasty and all Britons are advised to get out while the airlines are still flying. If the situation goes bad, Great Britain will not be able to evac nationals who are caught in the country.

Get out NOW.

Thought this might be good advise to any transiting the area to be even more vigilant or perhaps go somewhere else.

Re: UK Government advises Britons to leave Yemen

You won't be able to tell the cruisers that.

If they have got there they will not have listened to any piracey stuff so why would they care about a civil war? They think the AK47's pointed at them are a culturally significant welcome.

They look like Fuel Pumps at a gas station: They have their dicks in their ears.

Re: UK Government advises Britons to leave Yemen

I think the same goes for all middle east at the moment. If its not rebels against the government then its pirates or terrorists or plain old mobsters hoping to make a buck

Most of us are lucky enough to have come from beautiful countries, so in these uncertain times, why not make the most of home comforts and show a little nationalism.

Lets be carefull and wise before, not after the event please
