decapitation strategy
 n.— «Decapitation strategy. Sensitive souls will be surprised this was dreamed up by portly Lib Dem campaign director, Lord Rennard, who took a leaf out of the Pentagon’s book to describe beheading the Conservatives by unseating such figures as Oliver Letwin, David Davis and even Michael Howard.» —“Breaking the code” Guardian (U.K.) Apr. 11, 2005.
