Mehdi’s Muddle on Iran’s ‘Bombastic’ President

Followers on Twitter will have enjoyed many, many Twitterspats between Guido and the New Statesman’s Mehdi Hasan. They follow a familiar pattern with Mehdi usually citing someone who wrote something in the New York Times once and then calling Guido stupid for disagreeing. He’ll often write an article that no one reads in the Staggers “proving” his point.  

Last week he wrote a 1000 word response to a tweet Guido did about bombing Iran’s nuclear programme. Normally Guido can’t be bothered to respond in kind at length. This time an article in response is up on The Commentator.

Quote of the Day

Boris responds to Tusk…

“I don’t want a No Deal Brexit but I say to our EU friends if they don’t want No Deal they have got to get rid of the backstop from treaty. If Donald Tusk doesn’t want to go down in history as Mr No Deal Brexit then I hope this point will be borne in mind by him too.”
