Moderately Iranic

You may have heard recently about how Iran has elected a new "moderate" President. It's true, insofar as he may have been the most moderate of the candidates, which have to be pre-approved by the country's very un-democratic Guardian Council (heh, Guardian). It really is all relative, as our leftie friends believe.

It's hard to see how there's anything moderate – relatively or otherwise – about what these chaps (and fancy that, it is all chaps) were chanting at President Rouhani's inauguration, however...

'Death to America, Death to England, Death to Israel...'

Shocking, right? They said "England" rather than "Britain"! But hey, this means the SNP will now be able to claim that independence will guarantee freedom from Islamic terrorism. And why bother with Trident if Iran doesn't think you're worth nuking?

As for the rest of us, maybe we should be moderately worried.
