Britain reopens embassy in Tehran with 'death to England' still graffitied above Queen's portrait

Yes, that's the picture.

British Foreign Secretary and MP Phillip Hammond is in Tehran today, and I want to start this post with some of the tweets I posted today about Britain's tuches licking foreign policy chief.
British Foreign Secretary Hammond announced on Sunday that Britain will reopen its embassy in Tehran. In fact, it's already been reopened. Yes, with the graffiti pictured at the top.
The graffiti, one of numerous slogans sprayed across the embassy in Tehran when it was ransacked by a mob four years ago, had not been removed for the grand-reopening of the embassy, despite the attendance of VIPs including the Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond
Officials claimed that removing the graffiti without damaging the building's elegant Victorian walls required specialists who had not yet been brought in. But there was surprise that the offending graffiti, which was written in Persian, had not been covered up in anyway prior to Mr Hammond's visit. There were other signs of damage as well, including mirrors that were still broken.  
Mr Hammond declared on Sunday there "should be no limit" to what Britain and Iran could achieve together when he reopened the UK Embassy in Tehran.
Paying the first visit to Iran by a Foreign Secretary for almost 12 years, Mr Hammond watched as the Union Flag was raised and God Save the Queen played over a loudspeaker in the spacious Embassy compound. 
In an interview in this otherwise elegant example of Victorian architecture, Mr Hammond told the Telegraph why he had not insisted on Iran paying for the damage as a precondition for reopening the Embassy. British taxpayers have footed the bill, which runs into several hundred thousands of pounds.

"In my experience, if you set down preconditions in a situation where you have no dialogue, then you get stasis. We have a number of issues which need to be resolved. The right thing to do is to establish a channel for communication," said Mr Hammond.
Funny, I seem to recall Iran setting down some preconditions before the nuclear talks started, and they seem to have gotten everything they wanted.

For those who have forgotten, here's a picture of what happened the last time the British embassy in Tehran was open:

Anyone who's been exposed to the BBC either on the 'news' side or the entertainment side knows full well how Official Britain feels. They are grateful for an opportunity to lock arms with another nation of Jew haters.

I would agree with the "official" qualifier while noting that "real" Britain, (ie a large chunk of the population WHO ARE NOT radicalized Muslims or useful idiots)does stand with Israel. I suspect that the BBC and their associates in Big British Media have been instrumental in hiding that fact from public discourse.
