The first year Christ Church student did not speak on the occasion.The debate proposition ‘this house believes that the ideal state is a secular state’ was scheduled way before Ms Bhutto’s death but was ideally suited to become a memorial for her, according to a family spokesman.Alan Duncan MP was amongst those who paid tribute, saying: ‘She was amazing, fiery and fun.’by Katherine Halllast_img
