Howzzat: A fictious diary of Imran Khan

first_imgI’m back from London and there’s an epidemic of dengue fever and violence in Pakistan. Of course, it wouldn’t occur to me to do a dharna for the poor children who got bombed by the Taliban on their way to school or the Hazara Shias who got lined up and gunned down by the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi.The Taliban and Lashkars are much misunderstood, poor things. It’s not their fault. It’s the Americans’ fault. Which reminds me, I was walking through the seedier parts of London when I came across a shop with purple velvet curtains that said, “Fortune Teller and Mind Reader”. So I went in, hoping to learn when the Americans would leave Af-Pak so that rivers of milk and honey can begin flowing again (as they did in the 1980s and 90s, before 9/ 11).But the Fortune Teller was an ugly old crone hereas the Mind Reader was a hot young chick. So, no prizes for guessing where I went first! The Mind Reader sat me down on a stool, closed her eyes, concentrated really hard for what seemed like an eternity mumbling, “I’m trying to read your mind ?” Eventually, she gave up and said, “No ? nothing ? nothing at all ? an absolute blank!” “That’s amaaaazing” I exclaimed, “how did you know?” Thing is, in England, you get what you pay for. Not like Pakistan, where everyone’s a fraud.After London, I drove down to Oxford. You know of course that I was at Oxford which was a tremendous learning experience because there were lots of beautiful women there. In those days, I used to own a blue sports car. As soon as I came within sight of the university’s tall turrets, I said to myself, “Aah, the City of Screaming Tyres”. Then I began to get a series of desperate emails from my followers in the Tehrik-e-Insaf. “Have you reached?” one read. “Return soon” read another. And so on. But the day before I left, Naomi Campbell rang up and said she was going to see her old (emphasis on old!) friend Nelson Mandela in South Africa and would I like to come. Her Russian oligarch boyfriend was taking his Lear Jet so it’d be a free ride. Why not, I thought.advertisementMandela, I’m afraid, is black. Even the president is black. He shook hands with me, cameras clicked and then he said he was very sorry, he had to go off and run the country. Then we got back into the Lear Jet and returned to London. I slept soundly all the way there. When we disembarked at Heathrow, I said to Naomi, “You know, I somehow see myself in Mandela”. “I think you should go back to bed, darling”, Naomi said, “you’re still dreaming.”Im the Dimlast_img read more

SHOCKER Smith lawyer to put US on the stand

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp David Smith returns to court in January; heads back to HMP in Grand Turk TCI Residents not affected by US ESTA Notice Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 09 Apr 2015 – David Smith’s Lawyer says he wants to ‘cross examine’ the United States before they try to extradite the former Olint boss, who is convicted in the US of running a Ponzi Scheme. In a surprise move and likely a last ditch effort, Smith’s legal team is trying to block an extradition order by challenging the US courts affidavit. During proceedings Wednesday, Magnetic Media learned that the document will expose detailed information on Smith’s crime, arrest, charges, conviction, sentencing and even his plea deal with American authorities. Oliver Smith, attorney for David Smith was reminded that his client is already convicted; sentenced to 30-years for bilking over six thousand investors of a reported $220 million. Soon after David Smith had completed his sentence in the Turks and Caicos for the same charges, he was re-arrested and picked up by TCI Police. The US reportedly did not present the correct documents to extradite David Smith immediately after serving six years in HMP; the matter was taken to local court and the US was given about a month to make a proper representation. Oliver Smith will get his chance to question American authorities on the so called validity of the Extradition Order; proceedings were to resume today, but the hearing was adjourned.
