From his 'blog':
"The fact is that many Iranians have severe doubts about the outcome announced on Friday. They deserve to have their doubts addressed."

It is a great pity Mr. Miliband that you cannot apply the same principle to the fact that, again with regard to our membership of the European Union, Britons, who are also a proud people, wish to decide their own future and yes - you should defend that!
Principles are a wonderful attribute Mr. Miliband - especially when applied selectively!
