"This was the most democratic election in the world "

I don't know whether this is true or false but the television clips of the process certainly looked civilised and inclusive. Moderate influence must be good if it is actually taking place.

Not Blue Labour

Moderate is a seriously relative term when it comes to Iranian Ayatollahs. Rouhani is still going to happily continue those great Islamic Republic traditions of hanging gay men and female rape victims from cranes in public, sponsoring and arming terrorist organisations, repressing women and persecuting their minorities.

So lets not get too excited about this election, it may be a small step in the right direction for Iran, but it is only a small one, there's one hell of a long way to go yet until Iran can rightfully regain its place in the community of nations.
