Britain to reopen Embassy World Snooker in Tehran

British politicians have confirmed that Tehran and London are to restore diplomatic ties with a celebration of the golden age of Ray Reardon’. Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond will visit Iran and play a series of match play events against 1991 World Champion, ‘chirpy’ John Parrott, heralded by a special performance by Chas & Dave doing Snooker Loopy on the Iranian Tar.

There are still bitter memories in some quarters of how Iranian protesters in the late 1990s stormed the Embassy Hall, demonstrating against Stephen Hendry’s loss of form. Fortunately Tehran has now reached an agreement with six world powers to stop ‘dabbling with bar billiards’, while World Snooker chairman Barry Hearn said he was confident he could resolve the Palestinian question.
