Christopher Myers resigns from the FCO, citing “untrue and malicious allegations”.

Developing…

Hague statement:

“I feel it is necessary to issue this personal statement in response to press and internet speculation over the last ten days. Earlier this year a Sunday newspaper began questioning whether my marriage to Ffion was in trouble, and last week another media outlet asked whether there was a statement about our supposed separation. This seemed to be linked to equally untrue speculation surrounding the appointment of Christopher Myers as a Special Adviser. Christopher Myers has demonstrated commitment and political talent over the last eighteen months. He is easily qualified for the job he holds. Any suggestion that his appointment was due to an improper relationship between us is utterly false, as is any suggestion that I have ever been involved in a relationship with any man.

This speculation seems to stem from the fact that whilst campaigning before the election we occasionally shared twin hotel rooms. Neither of us would have done so if we had thought that it in any way meant or implied something else. In hindsight I should have given greater consideration to what might have been made of that, but this is in itself no justification for allegations of this kind, which are untrue and deeply distressing to me, to Ffion and to Christopher.

He has now told me that, as a result of the pressure on his family from the untrue and malicious allegations made about him, he does not wish to continue in his position. It is a pity that a talented individual should feel that he needs to leave his job in this way. Ffion and I believe that everyone has a right to a private life.

However, we now feel it necessary to give some background to our marriage because we have had enough of this continued and hurtful speculation about us. I have made no secret of the fact that Ffion and I would love to start a family. For many years this has been our goal. Sadly this has proved more difficult for us than for most couples. We have encountered many difficulties and suffered multiple miscarriages, and indeed are still grieving for the loss of a pregnancy this summer. We are aware that the stress of infertility can often strain a marriage, but in our case, thankfully, it has only brought us closer together.

It has been an immensely traumatic and painful experience but our marriage is strong and we will face whatever the future brings together. Several years ago one Sunday paper reported that Ffion was three months pregnant, without ever checking the story with us. This made even more difficult the fact that we had only just experienced another disappointment. We have never made this information public because of the distress it would cause to our families and would not do so now were it not for the untrue rumours circulating which repeatedly call our marriage into question. We wish everyone to know that we are very happily married.

It is very regrettable to have to make this personal statement, but we have often said to each other ‘if only they knew the truth…’ Well, this is the straightforward truth. I will not be making any further comment on these matters.”

          No-one is hounding Hague out of anywhere. He is a talented politician, and I couldn’t care less if he is homosexual.

          BUT if he is, why is he employing his (alleged) lover, and why is he covering it up? We live in 2010, neither of these things are really acceptable any more.

          AND if he isn’t, then he has very poor judgement in firstly sharing a hotel room with a younger man, and secondly in hiring a grossly unqualified individual for a position that could be much better filled by someone else.

          Neither of these things shows the kind of individual that is worthy of the exalted office he finds himself in. He needs a long hard look at himself, and decide if these kinds of mistakes are excusable in the Foreign Secretary, or indeed any minister.

            As for the Hotel room: a BIG mistake.

            David Ashby’s 1990′s hotel sharing ought to resonate with a politician of Hague’s age.

            I like William Hague but I think he has shown a deplorable lack of sense in :
            1) employing yet another SpAd at taxpayers’ expense (I think he’s already got two?)
            2) employing a young lad who cannot have the knowledge & experience to act as an ‘adviser’ – particularly as Hague’s job has so much involvement with Brussels – there was bound to be questions asked
            3) sharing a room with this lad who is an ‘out’ gay when there has been so much rumour & innuendo for years about which team Hague bats for (I hasten to add, this is not meant as an anti-gay comment but merely ‘why be stupid enough to add fuel to the flames of rumours?’)
            4) sharing all the personal bits about his marriage as a ‘damage limitation’ exercise, particularly the miscarriages – way too much information – it smacks of desperation & going for the ‘sympathy vote’ – similar to Brown & Sarah sobbing about little Jennifer on Piers Morgan – tasteless & unnecessary.
            My sympathy on this one goes to Ffion Hague – she is being dragged through newspapers, blogs & news channels not for anything she has done but because she’s married to a thoughtless shit who’s desperate to save HIS job – never mind about the fallout for anyone else.

          @Biffo, yes I agree. For her it would have been easier to live with the gay husband rumours, especially if they had both known them to be untrue, than have something so personal exposed to the world. It’s almost like WH has put the blame on her for being infertile.

          WH: Yes my wife is infertile, that’s why people think I’m gay, because I don’t have children with my wife?

          No, it’s because you abused your position to hire an inexperienced aide, whose talent and value to you has been questioned.

          Many people have questioned the sharing of a twin hotel room, people have compared this to stag dos, holidays with friends etc. where many men often share rooms, however, these days who shares a room with a work colleague? especially MPs with generous salaries, expense allowances. You don’t pay a useless person £30,000 and then make up for it by saving a few quid by sharing a room.

          How would that conversation have come about anyway? I would never dream of asking a work colleague to share a room, however innocent the intention. AND to do it to a younger subordinate who may not be able to say no, wouldn’t that be classed a sexual harrassment? Talk about making everyone feel very uncomfortable.

          Hague’s lack of judgement is shocking.

          People’s inclinataions and actions behind closed twin bedroom hotel doors should stay there.

          Here in this almost as Eurosceptic country as Hague’s Britain he would be gone. Here even ministers have to put their expenses on line for all to see, and special advisers have to be vetted by parliament.

          But this guy is the ultimate little Englander, only held in line by the Clegg coalition, he would be no loss for Britain. If he goes (does he go?) this might even help get Britain a little closer to joining the €uro. This would mean that the last holdouts in Scandinavia would probably join.

          And, that would be a fine day for Europe, the next foreign minister might even hang the European flag up next to the Union Jack as at press conferences. Even the Swedish do that….

At least GF got straight to the point.

            What an absolute load of twaddle there is being talked on here about h%%moph%bia tonight by lab%urlost people who think they scent g%%uido’s bl+ood.

            Let’s be clear , most of us who post on here regularly, regard WH with respect. But G is right – WH has made some serious errors of judgement. He’s a seasoned politician, in one of the highest offices of the land. We hoped for better after the massive poliitical abuses of the last 13 years and his poor judgement is disappointing.

            Whether or not he’s gay is Not the issue. For whatever reason, he decided , during the election, to share hotel room(s) with his driver. Serious error of judgement No.1. Imagine if gordon had done something like that ? The scandal that would have followed!

            On winning the election and being given a ministerial post he decided to give a SPad’s job to this 25year old driver, admittedly with a law degree, but no life/job experience of any note, at taxpayers expense. Serious error No.2.

            The issue is further compounded by the fact that the coalition promised to reduce the number of SPads and hence their cost to the taxpayer. And yet WH then goes and employs this one, that makes one more and more cost to the taxpayer than his labour predecessor did in the ssme office Serious error No.3.

            This blog is doing a good job in keeping a spotlight on government left, right or centre. And actually what this issue, on this blog, shows more than anything, is that G is, generally, concentratig on abuses in government rather than on left, right or centre.

            What I think is going to be really interesting now is to watch the Beeb, that renowned voice of the Left, painting WH as a saint and G as something worse than a McBrie

            Of course. I could be wrong and the Beeb will do some really balanced reporting. Let’s wait and see!!

Dale, the conhome and Hague himself are trying to make this about his sexuality when really it’s about his possibly corrupt hiring of staff. Even if there’s no sexual relationship between them the appointment should be looked at.

    What an absolute load of twaddle there is being talked on here about homophobia tonight by labourlost people who think they scent Guido’s blood.

    Let’s be clear , most of us who post on here regularly, regard WH with respect. But Guido is right – WH has made some serious errors of judgement. He’s a seasoned politician, in one of the highest offices of the land. We hoped for better after the massive poliitical abuses of the last 13 years and his poor judgement is disappointing.

    Whether or not he’s gay is Not the issue. For whatever reason, he decided , during the election, to share hotel room(s) with his driver. Serious error of judgement No.1. Imagine if gordon had done something like that ? The scandal that would have followed!

    On winning the election and being given a ministerial post he decided to give a SPad’s job to this 25year old driver, admittedly with a law degree, but no life/job experience of any note, at taxpayers expense. Serious error No.2.

    The issue is further compounded by the fact that the coalition promised to reduce the number of SPads and hence their cost to the taxpayer. And yet WH then goes and employs this one, that makes one more and more cost to the taxpayer than his labour predecessor did in the ssme office Serious error No.3.

    Guido’s blog is doing a good job in keeping a spotlight on government left, right or centre. And actually what this issue, on this blog, shows more than anything, is that Guido is, generally, concentratig on abuses in government rather than on left, right or centre.

    What I think is going to be really interesting now is to watch the Beeb, that renowned voice of the Left, painting WH as a saint and Guido as something worse than a DamianMcB

    Of course. I could be wrong and the Beeb will do some really balanced reporting. Let’s wait and see!!

    It smells most unusual that he should hire a relatively unqualified lad as an adviser and then decide to save the cost of a room by bunking up together.

    All the mock homophobic outrage on the blog seem to entirely miss the point. Would Hague have told us if he’d hired a young girl adviser that it was perfectly justifiable to share a room with her, I think not.
