Thanks to One Hand Clapping for this quote: "'It is not the American war machine that should be of the utmost concern to Muslims.

Tories on the up? reports: "In a swipe at William Hague, who scoffed at the 'slickness' of New Labour, Lord Saatchi said that the Tories should embrace the new media age by overcoming two key 'myths' that soundbites and focus groups are wrong. 'If you can't reduce your argument to a few crisp words or phrases it probably means there's something wrong with your argument,' he wrote.
