Take the case of Iain Duncan Smith's resignation over George Osborne's disability cuts for example:
The Conservative Party were on the ropes being battered blue, left right and centre. Calls for George Osborne's resignation were ringing through Westminster and David Cameron was finding it ever more difficult to justify the 'caring and sharing' label he had given himself and the Conservative Party.
Some political commentators were even calling it the end of the Government, while others were calling it the start of a British style Revolution.
Then the friendly terrorists came to the rescue by blowing up Brussels.
You can bet your bottom Euro that the Brussels terror attack will bring Europe closer together and the emotional heart-ache will guarantee the British voters vote 'YES' to stay in the European Union.
Killing Two Birds with One Stone.
After a day of hiding in the shadows, the first thing George Osborne said when he stood up at the Common's dispatch box to justify his U-turn on disability cuts was, "Let me start by offering all our condolences to the victims, and their families, of the attacks in Belgium."
Famed for being a skilful strategist, he used the terrorist atrocity in Brussels to stave off criticism for implementing cuts which would otherwise have starved the most vulnerable people in British society.
While Osborne was keen to stress it was "too soon yet to comment on the details of these attacks," he was more than happy babble on about his buddy David Cameron attending a Cobra meeting, (of which he mentioned he was present), to confirming an increased police presence at key locations to telling us about the increased security at our national borders.
Talk about jumping on the band-wagon.
His glee at the terror attacks conveniently taking attention away from his own failings couldn't be more evident by the way he sat giggling and whispering with the Justice Secretary Michael Cove, whilst opposition MP's berated him over the consequences of his Nazis style austerity cuts.
George Osborne didn't have a care in the world; and why should he? The friendly terrorists had conveniently blown up Brussels, stealing the lime-light away from his own incompetence and failings.
Terrorists really are a Politician's Best Friend...
