Something must be done

As a commenter pointed out, the syllogism
  • Something must be done.
  • This is something.
  • Therefore it must be done.
comes from Yes Minister.

You can find it and many other great lines from the show on Jonathan Lynn's own website.

James attacked Polly for it - with good reason.

But isn't it the logic of too many motions and speeches at our own conferences?
