Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, declared that the UK is the most evil Western Government during his Friday prayer sermon. I do wonder what he based this outrageous slur upon. Where's the evidence Mr Ayatollah?
Is it the couple of iffy wars that this Government has waged upon two countries either side of Iran?
Was it the bit where Tony Blair lied through his teeth to us to get the war he promised to George W Bush?
Could it be the nuclear power stations that we have but won't allow them to build, on pain of a bombing raid?
I don't believe it's the way our Government backs Israel and turns a blind eye to its murderous raids on Palestine.
Maybe he takes exception to us berating the lack of Democracy in his country by our own unelected leader.
Could it be the condemnation of the Iranian police handing out beatings and killings while dealing with the demonstrators while our own inquiry into Police brutality and unlawful killing at the G20 demonstration is going ahead?
Was it the bit where we defied the will of the International Community such as at the United Nations?
Has he taken offence to us leaving huge swathes of the middle east covered in depleted uranium?
See, you have nothing on us Mr Ayatollah. Most evil indeed. Pfft.
Now if you had said the most incompetent Western Government instead...
