Christina Lamb remembers Bhutto

Award winning journalist and club member Christina Lamb remembers Benazir Bhutto in today’s Sunday Times,

We had just entered Santa’s castle in the pretty Portuguese village of Obidos on Thursday when my phone beeped with the first text message. “Benazir has been critically wounded in bomb attack – in hospital undergoing treatment.” I think I knew immediately. Obidos styles itself Portugal’s Vila Natal or Christmas Town and it was packed with families oohing and aahing at Nativity scenes scattered with artificial snow and downing cups of local cherry brandy. As I pushed through the crowds to get out and hear my phone, which by then was ringing repeatedly, the elves and Santas all around suddenly seemed sinister. link
