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

Brown's useful Tory idiots

Does anyone really believe that Mr Brown cares what Patrick Mercer, a man sacked by the Tory leader for what Labour MPs described as racist remarks, thinks about national security? Of course he doesn't.

The big clunking fist has not turned into an outstretched palm. The Conservative MPs recruited by the Labour leader are like Lenin's "useful idiots" - they are political puppets, summoned into the Government of all the talents, not to illuminate Mr Brown but to destabilise Mr Cameron. Link

db: Including the toad John Bercow! The man who paid homage to Blair just about every time he stood up in the House of Commons - despite Blair once describing him as "nasty and ineffectual in equal quantity".
