we all go abroad for treatment, don't we?

Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia, like the vast majority of the people they claim to represent, need to go abroad for treatment.

They are like the millions of their compatriots who go to the US or UK every day for first-rate therapy.

Every year, hordes of slum-dwellers, farmers and factory workers go abroad for medical attention.

Our democratically elected leaders are just like them – ordinary citizens going abroad for treatment.

Tomorrow my wife and I will be taking the first flight out of Bangladesh to Singapore, Bangkok, Los Angeles, and sundry other places for our annual check-ups.

See you when we get back.
