Only the bad ones; the most successful ones realise that you need to make allies who are willing to cooperate with you to help both of you to achieve your aims.

"Only the bad ones"

I have yet to come across a good one.

"the most successful ones realise that you need to make allies who are willing to cooperate with you to help both of you to achieve your aims"

This is what is known as forming a gang and is the usual way to enforce obedience from the public.

Have a look at http://www.angelfire.com/realm3/accord/ .
It was put on line towards the end of John Major's stint and has been added to in one or two places since (I think).

Ah, but the aim of the politician and the financier is to be leader of the gang.

"Let's be friends - on my terms!"

A lesson a certain Nick Clegg learned the hard way.
