modern political figures carried out their feuds by self-ending or murdering their opponents: Brown cutting his throat rather than leave No. 10 would beat reading that Cameron was taking over from Brown; or Democrat Death Squads gunning down Dick Cheney on his doorstep would be jollier than reading of George W. Obama peacefully taking over from Barack H. Bush.
