  • choices of the next house of commons

    As governments rise and fall, choices are made and yesterday's blessings become today's curses.



    There are actually a few things visible.



    - Two parties might do the right and opposite reasons.

    - A winner in a bartering game might lose it all after an election.

    - There are no innocent bystanders in intelligence.



    All these things are thrown through a room at awkward speed, only to learn that the ones we look after are not the ones who need it. Should we stand by old deals, and what if the new deal is so much better for all concerned, but only if you throw the old representative to the lions (and we do mean eaten alive)?

    It seems to me that MI-5 has a day job mopping the floor with a running tab, and all that just escalates.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Harry: Part of the reason for all this trouble is that most Americans think anything east of the Hudson is like those blank spaces on medieval maps where they drew in a monster and wrote, "Here be dragons."

    • Oliver Mace: If you're asking me is there, at present, anything we shouldn't do to achieve our ends, then, frankly, I don't know. Post 9/11 we made a decision that nothing – nobody – was to be off-limits anymore. Look around at what's been happening since Iraq. We're up against it. We can't say anymore, "This, we do not do." In the long-term it will be proved right as a strategy.
      Harry: Whose long-term are we talking about?

    • Danny: Is there something about you I should know?
      Harakat: What all this history teaches me is that man learns nothing from his past. He just repeats it.

    • Oliver Mace: Why should I be interested in this man's immigration application? Does it now say 'Visas and Passports' on my door?
      Harry: Actually, it says 'Department of Livestock and Freshwater Fish'.

    • Harry [ to Adam ]: I'm happy to go and ask Mace, but we must be careful to remember that, "One swallow does not make a summer," and all that.
      This is a line from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics: "For one swallow does not make a summer, nor does one day; and so too one day, or a short time, does not make a man blessed and happy."
