Afshin Rattsani remembers Bhutto

Frontline club member and Al Jazeera journalist Afshin Rattansi recalls meeting Benazir Bhutto on the steps of the club opposite Mickey’s fish and chip bar after her Q&A session in July 2007,

It was quite a scene. Members of her security detail – I assume – milled about in front of Mickey’s Fish and Chip Bar and I explained to one of them that Alexander Fleming reputedly discovered Penicillin about 200 yards away. She seemed in a bit of a daze and said she always felt safe in London and reiterated how well she was getting on with the U.S. government. There was not a hint of regret about the selling out of her constituency during her disastrous terms in office. link
