They fail to notice that by continually appeasing a minority who will never vote for them, and will never be satisfied by any appeasement (witness the routing of Labor in the Queensland state election, and what the Christian right voters said), they betray their voting base, who now wander off to greener pastures.

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;

But we've proved it again and again,

That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld

You never get rid of the Dane.
