BBC reports, rather gleefully, that Tehran's anti-vice police chief has been arrested after being found with six naked women in a house of prostitution.
Local media have reported that General Reza Zarei was found with six naked women in a house of prostitution in the Iranian capital last month.
He has been taken to jail while his case is investigated, a spokesman for Iran's judiciary said.
Gen Zarei was in charge of enforcing Iran's strict anti-vice laws, which include a ban on prostitution.
I think the general is being unfairly prosecuted. I'm sure he was just trying to keep those dirty, immoral women off the streets. Protect the impressionable youth and all that. And this is the reward he gets for his tireless efforts to eradicate vice. Tch!

Mystery Wag

While browsing through some of the Cricket blogs of late, I chanced upon Paul Holden's Sideline Slogger. Holden, despite being a Kiwi cricket fan, or possibly because of it, has a rather distinctive funny side to his musings. What really caught my eye, though was Question 4 in one of his recent posts 11 Questions, Queries and Appeals
Is this a gratuitous question being used as an excuse to include a photo of the English players’ WaGs?
The question is accompanied by a rather nice picture of the English WaGs, and the answer of course is "Yes, it is actually".

But that is not what this post is about.

If you look closely at that picture of the WaGs, you'll notice a rather singular figure at the back, dressed in red, wearing a floppy hat that must have been quite fashionable in the days of David Gower. Now for the life of me, I cannot figure out whose wife/girlfriend that distinguished looking lady is. And it's a question that's been keeping me awake at night.

Could she be Kevin Pietersen's hot new girlfriend we keep hearing so much about? Or could she be the future Mrs. Sidebottom? Or maybe she's just Andrew Strauss' mum who's popped in to check if her boy's been behaving himself. If that is indeed the case, it would explain a lot.

If anyone has a clue, please let me know.
