Changing with the narrative

True to form, opportunists in the corridors of power are changing their colours with the shifting narrative. One example is of the chief prosecutor in the Land of Five Rivers who, until last week, had a generous growth of facial hair to prove that he was not ill-disposed towards the terrorists he was supposed to bring to justice. Now, with zero tolerance for terrorism being the flavor of the time, he’s suddenly shaved off his beard to be in step with the moment.

Domicile changes

On the one side, The Great Khan’s hordes have resigned from Parliament. On the other side, there’s a lot of hand wringing going on about missing the bus for the Senate elections due in March. We hear at least two stalwarts have changed their domiciles to Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa where The Khan’s is the ruling party, in order to be elected Senators.

Vast repast

A sugar baron recently had his son’s valima hosted by Hubby, in a borrowed Lahore palace and the question being asked is: who footed the bill for the vast repast? Hubby’s name was loudly emblazoned on the card as the host, but his touts were keen to pass on the cost to a generous donor. That ploy having failed, rumour has it that the taxpayer of Sinned picked up the tab.
