moussa koussa say: eh-oh

These things always seem obvious with the benefit of hindsight, but clearly, as this week's events involving Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa illustrate, rule 23 in the Despot's Handbook should read: never appoint as a senior cabinet minister someone who sounds like a character from the Teletubbies or In The Night Garden. Chances are they won't have the necessary ruthless and unswerving commitment to relentless evil supervillainy and will shit themselves and defect at the first sign of trouble.
