The PPP's Nepotism Problem Goes Global

You know that legacy politics in Pakistan is a big deal when even the Canadians (I think, or maybe French) are making fun of it. The video isn't all that funny, I just think it's interesting how the rest of the world is laughing at us.

It is Canadian, this much is clear.

However, there was subtle racism in the namaste gesture. If they can't distinguish between Indian politicians and Pakistani ones, they need to seriously read up on the various kinds of browns in the world.
