Today’s White Lies

On the mainstream media: It is alleged that a key (key-est of key) member of the prime minister’s kitchen (kitchen-est) cabinet has secretly married a member of the ruling party who used to belong to the Other League (remember Q, anyone?)

It is also heard on the grapevine that the Haq Mehr is a staggering one billion rupees. Now THAT is income support.


The prime minister, during his speech at the inauguration of a power plant on Friday, spoke at length about how his government has saved a lot of money in said plant.

During the speech, he was effusive in his praise of his younger brother, the Punjab chief minister, and mentioned him four times. Is this a sign of things to come since, if the elder Sharif is disqualified, the baton of the office has to be passed over to the younger brother?
