The Islamist Muslim Brotherhood was elected on promises to develop a more liberal and secular Egypt. Instead, it promoted extreme, undemocratic Islamism. The people of Egypt, especially the more enlightened citizens of its capital city, resisted Morsi's creeping fascism, and the relatively secular army assisted them to oust the new tyrant.
'Our' Foreign secretary William Hague of course opposes the army's intervention, because Hague prefers Islamists, who can be relied on to oppose anything progressive. Egypt has taken a step forward.

Yes providing you believe the same things as the army, otherwise you'll be dead.

Ask Angela: Why do you think the current crisis in Egypt is "hypothetical"?

Britain has been involved in a number of wars and military actions one of the purposes of which was to bring democracy to some oppressed people. This strikes me as madly optimistic.

In 1649 Charles I had his head cut off and despite the later return of the monarchy in the shape of Charles II this event marked the end of the supremacy of the king, we can look at it a the start of the road to democracy in Britain. (some would argue that it started in 1215 with Magna Carta).

In 1928 when women received the right to vote on equal terms we can say that full democracy was achieved (some may argue against on the basis of the hereditary House of lords)

Taking my two dates it would seem that it took us 279 years to get to full democracy, why should we expect any other country to make the same journey in a handful of years?
