|GR: Polonius in control?

in consequence of the missive, GR: About Claudius and eavesdropping, penned by Laraine
I am beginning to think that Polonius is a lot more in control of the whole situation than perhaps meets the eye. Esp. when it comes to Claudius. Or perhaps, Claudius is a bit of a puppet?
This could also hearken back to my theory that Claudius is not a thinking man, he is a man of action. These ideas wouldn't occur to him by naturally. Polonius is a proven spy - as documented by sending the spy to temp Laertes. Gives a good reason, plotwise, to have that scene in the play at all.
