    Allegedly, a constable left the room just after the incident, and happened to meet a Labour MP in the corridor, who is an ex-GP. "I think Mr Murdoch might need a Doctor!"
    *No", said the MP, he needs a lawyer!"

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    She basically jumped him and pushed the plate back into his face before falling to the ground.

    She's a wife/bodyguard. Charlie's angels material.

    Re: Murdoch Apparently Attacked With White Foam During Hearings

    I actually saw this happen live. It was like... wtf? Then back to confused news desks while they tried to sort out what had happened. When they replayed the video, it was pretty clear. This guy got within 2 feet of Murdoch. Haven't the Brits ever heard of "security personnel"? If Murdoch's wife didn't have the reflexes of a mama panther and a hell of a right hook, Murdoch would have gotten much worse than he did. I'm no fan of the guy, but sheesh. Let's get a bit of security when we have one of the most hated men in Britain on a public hotseat, umkay?
