ThePPP crooks and all are crying hoarse about Imran's U-turn statement. Here is the interview of ZAB, the wrecker in chief of Pakistan, to Oriana Fallaci

ZAB interview to Oriana Fallaci apparently about u turn.
O. F.: She told me you’re an unbalanced man, that today you say one thing and tomorrow another, that one never understands what’s on your mind.
Z.A.B.: Ah, yes? I’ll answer that right away. The only thing I accept from the philosopher John Locke is this statement: “Consistency is a virtue of small minds.”1 In other words, I think a basic concept should remain firm but, within that basic concept, one should be able to move back and forth. Now to one pole, now to the other. An intellectual should never cling to a single and precise idea—he should be elastic. Otherwise he sinks into a monologue, into fanaticism. A politician, the same. Politics is movement per se—a politician should be mobile. He should sway now to right and now to left; he should come up with contradictions, doubts. He should change continually, test things, attack from every side so as to single out his opponent’s weak point and strike at it. Woe to him if he focuses immediately on his basic concept, woe if he reveals and crystallizes it. Woe if he blocks the maneuver by which to throw his opponent on the carpet. Apparent inconsistency is the prime virtue of the intelligent man and astute politician. If Mrs. Gandhi doesn’t understand that, she doesn’t understand the beauty of her profession. Now her father understood it.
