Friday 19 June

Overcast and showery today, although not really cold.

Situation in Iran is getting more complicated, now that the country's supreme leader has said the presidential election was conducted fairly, all protests should stop (or else) and the evil west should butt out.

All MP's allowed expenses were put on display on the Parliament's website, which revealed such jawdroppers as toiletrolls and jars of coffee. And £400 per month for food when parliament was not in session. The black squares were put across the pages by the parliament's fees office (which deals with expenses).
