The Odd Alliance

In a touching "hands across the sea" gesture, the Iranian ambassador to the UK has been cosying up to the SNP (tough gig). Apparently, Tehran and Holyrood share similar views on the proliferation of nuclear weapons - if this is true, the IAEA probably need to take a second glance at Douneray - as well as on peace and friendship, and possibly love as well.

This is of course a little embarrassing, as concerned friends of Alex Salmond have been keen to publicly point out, but the idea that Scotland and Iran are natural allies is of course nonsense. After all, it's not as if Scotland is bedevilled with clerics ranting on about evil gays and the Holocaust.
