John "Neville" Key: Peace in our time

Arthur Neville Chamberlain (18 March 1869 9 November 1940), was a British Conservative politician and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1937 to 1940.

Chamberlain is perhaps the most ill-regarded British Prime Minister of the 20th century in the popular mind internationally, because of his policy of appeasement towards Nazi Germany regarding the abandonment of Czechoslovakia to Hitler at Munich 29 September 1938. In the same year he also gave up the Irish Free State Royal Navy ports, in practice making it safe for German submarines to stay about 200 miles west of the Irish coast out of range of the Royal Navy, where they could pick off merchant shipping at will. Hitler invaded Czechoslovakia on 13 March 1939, less than 6 months after Chamberlain declared "peace in our time".

Chamberlain had no idea of the deeper, more long-range malicious intentions with which he was dealing in the person of Hitler just as John Key apparently has little idea of the long-range agenda being hatched by Clark and Bradford.

or to be not so polite about it...

Grinning like a chesire cat, the appeasing fool emerged from the wolf's lair waving a worthless scrap of paper containing a seductive load of dribble signed by a known art-forger. "Peace in our time!" he declared - trying to look like both a future PM and an Emperor parading in a new set of clothes. In response, a hoard of over-sexed brainless lemmings - his adoring colleagues - unaware that the amendment he had signed was just an "inconsequential" piece of naked rhetoric that did not serve the "public good" - rushed headlong towards the media to declare their support for "their man". They all promised they would formally approve every one the art-forger's demands that had created the "Grand concilliatory concensus".
