This disturbing turn of events was compounded by Angela Eagle popping up on the Daily Politics afterwards to spin for the Iranian regime. When it was pointed out that the new President has called for the “extermination” of protesters she replied “I said he was more moderate I didn’t say he was a democrat”. Perhaps, as a lesbian, Angela should visit Tehran to see just how moderate Labour’s new chums really are.
