Sunday 14 June

Bright and sunny day, although I can see very distant showerclouds looming to the south. The rainfall radar shows (heavy) showers over Harris and West Lewis. Most of Scotland is under warning for heavy rainfall this afternoon - except for the northwest, where I am.

Regarding the Iranian presidential elections, it is rumoured that the electoral commission there has declared the poll invalid. If confirmed, that would make for an interesting situation. It would appear to be unlikely though for the result to be formally declared null and void. Ahmadinajad's re-election looks for all intents and purposes to be as momentous as the overthrow of the Shah, back in 1978/79.
