Benazir Bhutto

One consequence of today's horror journey is that I will remember where I was when I learned that Benazir Bhutto had been assassinated.

Having arrived at Glasgow, I went for some chips and I spotted the Evening Times billboard. It was incredibly brave, and perhaps foolish, of her to go back to Pakistan. Politically, the country is now a basket case. In the 'War on Terror', Bush and Bliar got too far into bed with Musharraf. He has to go and go soon: equally, it is important that we do not get an Islamist nutjob replacing him. The last thing we need is for an unstable state with nuclear capability falling into the hands of fanatics.
