Political Conundrums!

It seems odd to me. Robert Mugabe says he goes to Mass and is a good man. Then he gets his henchman to duff up the opposition leader (complete with half his head shaved!). Tony Blair says he goes to Mass (with Cherie) and is a "well, I'm a fairly straight sort of guy". Then he bombs Iraq, fiddles the honours system, bans foxhunting, gives Scotland a special deal, keeps his backbenchers in the dark about the Attorney-General's legal advice on nuclear weapons, tries to lock people up without a trial, wants ID cards, allows his Chancellor to raid pension funds, and decides on policy in the Number 10 bunker before Parliament knows about it (I mean the Privy Council Office!).

Am I missing something here?
