So there is this trial going on in Tehran right now and the defendent is (was) a local employee of the British embassy. And on telly last night, the highy esteemed and renowned Iranian Broadcorping Castration showed film of witnesses claiming to have seen the British Ambassador to Iran leading the riots and causing trubble, after the elections. So I asked a few locals if they thought the reports were true. 100% said they were bullshit. Of course I couldnt ask any of the Guinness bottles that wander about here looking like mobile death. But they are only about 20% of the population anyway. And the best quote came from a taxi driver in Tehran who said: "I cant see the British Ambassador wiping his own arse let alone leading riots". Of course there is a really serious side to the court case: the poor b'stard in court stands a very good chance of being hanged just because he worked for the British embassy. Nanu nanu!
