  1. Have the Prime Minister drink it on TV.

    I call this the Napoleonic Method -- get in front of the troops, and they will fight for you. (Wish we did that in Iraq!)

  2. The Ex-PM should have had a vetting committee to protect him from the fallout after that. The same trick had been tried in Australia by getting the political candidates to drink Newater publicly. From what I've seen, it seems to have resulted in electoral losses, instead. Next time they better get their guy elected first.
