Thank you for the obvious risks you were taking in order to show us this, and keep safe.

I admire your bravery. There aren't many of us sat here who would be in your shoes. Take care. It doesn't feel like anyone knows how this is going to pan out.

The Germans have invested a lot of money in Iran. The Iranians are right to suspect foreigners of wanting to see regime change. But it isn't going to happen.

Delighted that my worry was unfounded. Have a gorilla!

And why is there a BBC Persian Service? And why, around 18 months ago, did George Bush seek $400 million from Congress for opposition groups in Iran?

It's probably of little consolation, but there are a lot of people on this blog (and elsewhere I'm sure) who really appreciate the quality of your reporting from some horrendously dangerous spots.

I gather Jeremy's visa runs out (is it today?). How will we get impartial reports here, I wonder?By the way, I'm very impressed by that running.
