"The Khan has given a lecture, half extempore half prepared, on climate change to the world."
"Since The Khan became the prime minister he is not a jack of all trades but master of all."
"I don't think that's the correct expression."
"I know the expression is jack of all trades master of none but change you nitwit, is in Pakistan for the past three years and The Khan represents change..."
"Stop, no more, that's it. Anyway don't forget that The Khan also talked about Kashmir and the fascist Indian regime led by Modi and..."
"You gotta deal with whoever the people elect. I mean you can't pick and choose who you talk to like...like..."
"Like with coalition partners?"

"And who knows what the papers actually say! Anyway you reckon The Khan has forgiven him for failing to make a convincing case against Shehbaz Sharif in the UK...."
"I reckon The Khan is mulling yet another change in his cabinet..."

"There are no buffaloes, no fleet of cars, no biscuits with tea at the Prime Minister's House, no..."
"Indeed, but total budget outlay is up to 8.4 trillion rupees while three years ago the government had inherited 5.1 trillion rupee outlay..."
"Shush, think of the glass as half full...there is Ehsaas, there is a much toned down Kamyaab Pakistan, there is a move towards religious scholarship, there is the prospect of justice, there is..."
"I give up."
