Liberal Theocrat Ming the Merciful

This Comment piece in The Times is well worth a read. Chancellor of St.Andrews University, the right honourable Ming Campbell is to present former President Khatami of Iran with an honorary doctorate of law. Presumably for his direct role in crushing the student uprising in Iran in 1999. Or maybe for how he adopted laws on segregation that among other things led to women not being allowed to be treated by male medical staff and doctors in hospitals…
There is obviously nothing Merciless about Ming. He forgives and forgets – then praises and applauds!
