They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

From New Tory to New Labour

Gordon Brown has claimed his first scalp as Labour leader - with the defection of senior Tory Quentin Davies on the eve of the Chancellor becoming Prime Minister.

Mr Davies, a former shadow Northern Ireland Secretary, delivered a withering verdict on Conservative leader David Cameron as he quit the party.

The Grantham and Stamford MP wrote in his resignation letter: "Under your leadership the Conservative Party appears to me to have ceased collectively to believe in anything, or to stand for anything. It has no bedrock. It exists on shifting sands. A sense of mission has been replaced by a PR agenda." Link
