The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.

Take it Easy Hospital - Human Jungle
Ash Koshanejad and Negar Shaghaghi starred in the wonderful Iranian film No One Knows About Persian Cats. They fled to the UK and claimed asylum here immeidately after filming. Ash had already been imprisoned for his part in an unauthorised rock concert in Tehran, Negar would have faced dire consequences. had she stayed. Iran's loss is Britain's gain in my view but it shouldn't be that way.
