Democracy breaks out in Pakistan in wake of Benazir's death

Bilawal "Billy" Bhutto son of Benazir, who celebrated his 19th birthday on 21st September, a first year history student at Christ Church, Oxford, (He did his 'O' levels in Dubai at the Maktoum family owned Rashid School for Boys) was appointed chairman of the Pakistan People's Party yesterday.

The meeting of 22 of the senior members of the PPP agreed that Bilawal ( a Black Belt in Taekwondo) would share the role of chairman with his father Asif Ali Zardari, the well known and much admired adherent of participatory Jeffersonian democracy.

Happily they both own a Surrey bolt hole if things turn rough in Pak.... or not own as the case may be.
