The Lies Aren’t Even Interesting

In the latest BBC Iran summary you will find this gem:

On Tuesday, the country’s legislative body, the Guardian Council, said there had been no major polling irregularities and the result would stand.

Guardian Council spokesman Abbas Ali Kadkhoda’i said there had been “no major fraud or breach in the election”.

Let’s see, 3 million more votes than voters from 50 cities by their own admission and there was no “major fraud”. No doubt the spokesman has a fatwa to excuse his lies.

The BBC also noted that the UK expels two Iranian diplomats in response to Iran’s expulsion of two UK diplomats. Obviously the British officials were doing something undiplomatic, like noticing that there were protests in the streets and people were being attacked and occasionally killed by government security forces.
