Yesterday I was horrified to read in the media that a young man in Iran had received 80 lashes for the crime of drinking alcohol at a family social event, I think it was a wedding, some ten years ago. He was apparently 14 years old when he drank the alcohol.
Meanwhile back in Britain, there are protests about Trump’s visit to Britain.
I’m not aware that there have been any protests about the unfortunate young Iranian. I’m not even aware that this event has been widely publicised.
What do these two unconnected events tell us about British people today?
