BBC NEWS | World | South Asia | Pakistan judge blasts dictators

Mr Chaudhry says he is fighting for the independence of the judiciary but the protests in his favour have turned into a broader campaign against military rule, says the BBCs Barbara Plett in Islamabad .

This kind of connects with a recent Dispatches about Pakistan I saw nearly all of. I wish I’d seen it all. It painted a wonderfully clear picture of the bizarre situation in Pakistan.

It’s perfectly simple. Democracy works. (Well,  European-style democracy works.) The rule of law works. A non-corrupt public sector works. It all just works. There’s nothing to be afraid of.
