Blair invited to Iranian holocaust debate

Via Aljazeera comes the clearest indication yet of the Iranian government’s sincere desire to build a lasting partnership with Britain – an invitation to speak at their debate on the conference on the holocaust (or, rather, the imaginary holocaust):

Hamid Reza Asefi, a foreign ministry spokesman, said: “It would be good for Mr Blair to participate in the Holocaust seminar in Tehran.

“He can also contribute with an article. If he wants to defend the Holocaust in that article, he can do so. We will give him the time to read out his article so others can hear his point of view.”

Unfortunately, I think Tony probably has to wash his hair that day.
