Egyptian Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif was on BBC's Hardtalk a few days.ago. I've made an audio-only MP3 recording of the show here for those who'd rather not watch it streaming in RealPlayer. The interview covered a range of democracy-related issues and is interesting for the vapid answers Nazif gave on issues such as the Muslim Brotherhood, the secular opposition, the use of torture and political prisoners.
