Contributing sentiments towards policy:

50% : The problem is that it is an expression of idealism and hope, rather than a programme for government.
44% : It is time for those who want to change Iran for the better to acknowledge that this will require a level of ruthlessness they have simply not shown so far.
41% : No one knows what the protesters specifically want for Iran.
40% : Revolutions - indeed any form of protest that seeks to overturn the established order - need leadership.
37% : Yet 12 months on from what briefly looked like an unprecedented threat to four decades of theocratic rule under the mullahs, the unpalatable truth is that the protesters have failed in their attempt to bring meaningful change to Iran.
