I do think the government should have acted earlier to co-ordinate with private firms to get people back, but at the same time, why should my taxes pay for costly rescue missions for people who choose to stay in a risky area well after it is more than clear that unrest is imminent.

We should not abandon Britons abroad, but similarly I don’t see why some effort shouldn’t be made to recover a nominal cost from those individuals/companies who remained there longer than was advisable.
