A commentator here mocks Pakistan, and rightly so.
” As a contemporary of Benazir Bhutto at Oxford, I recall various gossip about her activities. I’m sure the story about her doing a strip-tease at the Cape of Good Hope Pub was only a scurrilous rumour. Odd that she got to be PM in such a seemingly theocratic State.

Full disclosure, I’m writing as a descendant of two families that were forced out of their ancestral homes by Partition. My Mum still recalls her home in Lahore. “
