British Embassy Tunis
.
Prime Minister David Cameron spoke to Tunisian Prime Minister Habib Essid yesterday and told him that he hopes to lift advice against British nationals visiting‪ ‎Tunisia‬ "as quickly as possible".
The phone call was an opportunity to talk about how the UK and Tunisia can keep working together to tackle the terrorist threat and the shared challenge both countries face from extremism.

Prime Minister Cameron said that Britain will continue to support Tunisia on its road to‪ democracy‬, and both Prime Minister’s agreed their shared objective was to put in place the right ‪‎security‬ measures and to look at ways to counter the terrorist threat in Tunisia, so that the UK could change its travel advice as quickly as possible.

They'd already said that all flights were cancelled till 31st October at least anyway, so it was inevitable they would give you a refund.

Did you notice on Escape from Isis that it was a Tunisian jihadist who offered to 'sell' some of the kidnapped women to the people trying to resuce them?

Yes Essem, and I also saw that the women were rescued without any money being handed over. What absolute heroes the rescuers are, knowing their own lives are at risk whenever they are attempt to get these women and children out.

I wish David Cameron would discuss other practical matters. For instance, there are many British children who can't visit Tunisia because the father has to give Parental consent before the child leaves the country. Most divorced couples have an agonising time because if trust has broken down, the child can't visit Tunisia and return home safely. There is also no power for the Tunisian to send maintenance payments, no enforcement exists. This has made bringing up my child agonising. P.
