    Iranian state TV have attempted to capitalise on this in an attempt to imprison her for longer: the country with despicable human rights abuses but yet everyone will just blame nasty bad evil Boris for this? Is no-one going to mention the role that Iran has to play in this case?
    I believe there is universal acceptance that what Iran is doing to this woman is wrong. BJ somehow managed to make the situation worse. He’s not some young inexperienced civil servant, he’s the bloody Foreign Secretary for christ sakes.

    Iran is certainly not a place I would travel and Boris certainly isn't someone I would employ to do any sort of important job.

    Re: Boris Johnson

    Johnson is exactly like me in one respect in that he strikes me as having a habit of reading a few pages of an instruction manual, text book, explanation of the circumstances behind an event and thinking he knows all there is to know on the subject. It's a bad habit for someone like me to have, but, in truth, the only person I tend to damage when it happens is myself - it's a bit different when you're a Foreign Secretary with all too obvious designs on the top job.

    I just doubt if I would ever consider going to Iran or speaking to Boris

    You're probably not a British-Iranian citizen like she is, so you probably don't need to go to Iran to visit family.

    I don't think British Irianlans are popular in Iran , and maybe looked on with some suspicion by the Iranian goverment ,who by and large are nice chaps,which has caught us out this time .

    Has it been proved by all doubt that it was a holiday (not trying to be clever this is a real question)

    What are you basing the British-Iranian unpopularity on? This is also a genuine question.
