Nothing symbolizes the state of each nation’s leadership better than how Asif and Sonia dealt with Mr. Cameron.
Sonia Gandhi had no time for the man when he came calling. Incidentally Mr. Cameron’s entirely unnecessarily grovelling manner must have had his ancestors rolling in their graves. Forget rule Brittania. What happened to the stiff upper lip, indeed basic self respect?
Still, Mr. Cameron can comfort himself that at least he is not a Pakistani leader. Apparently nothing will cause Mr. Zardari to defer, let alone call off, his tour of the UK. If nothing else, the princeling’s career as PPP co-chair must be launched there. Why the unfortunate country the princeling’s is destined to rule isn’t good enough for this purpose, no Jiala will say.
