With the arrest of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan, all Pakistani opposition leaders (with the exception of the Military--Mullah alliance) are now behind bars - thus paving the way for "free and fair" elections.
Imran Khan was arrested by police when he emerged from hiding Wednesday morning to lead an anti-Musharraf student protest. He will now be charged under anti-terrorism laws for inciting hatred and disobedience.
His ex-wife Jemima Khan immediately rallied his supporters for a "Free Imran" march. The protest marchers included members from a large cross-section of London society.
"We didn't really have much to do anyway", said Molly McBeadle, choir leader of the Whinging Grannies. "Besides we love a good march". The procession, which began at a small kabab shop in Finsbury Park wound its way through North London (stopping for a couple of pints at Crouch End pubs) before the big sit-down at No. 10 Downing St.
Anxious to show the world that he was a man of action Prime Minister Gordon Brown called for an emergency sitting of the cabinet. Following a terse exchange with the media a spokesperson for the PM revealed that actor Hugh Grant (Jemima's most recent main squeeze) and lovable rogue will head a British delegation to Pakistan to free Imran.
The blue-eyed boy himself wasn't saying much and when pressed by reporters threw a can of pork n beans at them shouting "Fuhgeddabadid".
