Vetinari is the calm, steady master manipulator who eases people into asking him for what he wants them to have. He can not afford to have a temper or to act on impulse and so he needs Vimes to shake things up a bit sometimes so that he can settle them back down in the way that HE wants.
Vimes of course is aware of the rage within him, his dark side as it were and he recognises the need for him to have to answer to a higher “Authority” to keep this in check. I think he would like to answer to the Law itself but of course the Law, unlike Vetinari, isn't going to sack him if he steps over the line!!!
