It seems that the Iranian Government has it's very own version of Jeffrey Archer. The BBC reports that Interior Minister Ali Kordan has been sacked after admitting that a degree he claimed was from Oxford University was actually a forgery (and a poor one at that).
The Minister's Walter Mitty claim was discovered after the degree certificate was found to be from 'London Oxford University' and littered with spelling mistakes.
According to the BBC, the scandal has made the former minister a national laughing stock, with a fake resignation letter being passed round purporting to be from him, but full of misprints and crossings-out.
One can hope, but I just wonder whether anyone has checked Peter Madelson's degree certificate out...
