Initiating a discussion on LinkedIn about the Privacy issue of this leaked conversation - this is not a political discussion, (political talk here http://teeth.pk/1I5HlqA) - just the technicality of, if this can be categorized as a private conversation

What protections can we as Pakistanis have to prevent other citizens discussions don't get leaked - if someone does have a recording (which many do) they should not be made public and if they do - there must be safe guards for citizens - and not be left fending away a smear campaign 

#Privacy   #pakistan   #Politics  
As many may have heard about the conversation between Imran Khan & Dr Arif Alvi, truly in my opinion there is nothing incriminating in the conversation so the contents are in the political discussion domain which I do not want to open up on Linkedin - the political discourse can be continued on my blog here on Teeth Maestro blog - Imran Khan & Dr Arif Alvi's "doctored" conversation leakedWhat I think needs to be discussed on Linkedin is more alon...

PTI wins Senate seats by a whisker, but will the Senate Elections Change in the future - NO

ECP comes up with the FIFTH figure of EXTRA BALLOTS printed in 2013 Elections

11 Aug = 0 extra ballots printed
28 Aug = 0.8M extra ballots printed
1 Dec = 9.3M extra ballots printed
7 Dec = 11.7M extra ballots printed
27 Jan = 11.83M extra ballots printed

It seems that the ECP has again shot itself in the foot viz-a-viz its credibility to have conducted transparent elections - the quantity of extra ballots being printed which is a FACT seems like a fluctuating stock market index on the up since PTI started exerting pressure on the transparency of the Election Commission of Pakistan

An update on the injured child Ahmed Nawaz who had been injured in the APS School attack - the social media outcry for assistance and the KPK Govt response to pledge 3.5 million for his medical treatment now extended to even taking the child to the UK for treatment.

Chairman Imran Khan was genuinely concerned about this issue and had requested an independent source to visit the hospital and report back - email included in the blog post

A must watch show when in Phuket. Buffet dinner is decent, but get there by 7:30 not the suggested 6 PM you would end up twirling your thumbs waiting. Select good seats - gold seats not worth the extra cash Cameras not allowed but the camera deposit return has a lazy 10 min extra line not exciting. Try to pack it in and don't open it anywhere. All said it's a must watch show

An over rated hotel - it's nice but overall I'd rate it as average resort - for the price rooms are average, they lack the finesse of a high standard resort - even the Movenpick ice cream served in their hotel is 3x the cost and stale - that fact alone was a shocker
