Mother-In-Law kidnapped

Bernie Ecclestonee's mother in law has been kidnapped and a £28 Million ransom demanded. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-latin-america-36891829

 

My answer in the same situation might be: "Let me get back to you on that..."

Perhaps they are asking for that sum to keep her.

Re: Mother-In-Law kidnapped

I would imagine that when the mother in law is younger than you are that there could be a bit of friction.

Hope he doesn't decide to post the ransom himself.

It'll take him a week to find the opening in the postbox.

I'm pleased to able to report this lady has been freed. There are no details as to how much ransom was paid by the kidnappers.
