WATCH: Hague’s Highlights

James Wharton gave an assured performance on his big day, though it was William Hague who delivered the killer blows:

 Poor wee Dougie.

    I effin hate the Tories but Hague is quite funny. I remember that once John Prescott was talking about his integrated transport plan and Hague said ‘The only thing you could integrate is a chicken curry and an afternoon nap’

        Nice Ed, who wants to be loved by everyone. says:

        Crazy innit. I guess Ed thought Ed thought handing out jobs to those he beat in the leadership contest was a nice and all inclusive thing to do. Not strong leadership, just being nice leadership.

        Of course it has ruined his chances of winning the 2015 election with all the no hopers in his shadow cabinet.

    Yes, very witty as ever from Mr Hague, who would be far better suited to stand up comedy than being foreign secretary. Worth mentioning though that the Tories only decided to “trust the people” when UKIP started humiliating them in by-elections. And I’m still waiting for a guarantee that an Out vote would be honoured.

      Yeah fair point actually. Arguing in favour of a referendum is veeerrrry easy as you can play the ‘the opposition doesn’t trust the people’ card. When of course we all know that the people aren’t trusted for good reason on most issues.

      Let’s have a referendum on the interest rate. No, you say? You don’t trust the people!

    I’ve long tired of Hague’s comedy routines with his Eddie Waring accent.
    He’s a duplicitous little shit, who has betrayed the country many a time this last three years.

      The British economy is doing rather well which is something you would know if you invested in the stock market as opposed to regurgitating all the tired propaganda you are listening to on the BBC. Brown did teh damage; Osborne is shovelling away all the shit left behind. It’s not happening fast enough but it could be a lot worse – thank fuck Brown ain’t running the show anymore.

      BBC inadvertantly helps much needed government spending cuts says:

      The economy is fine. For some reasons best known to Osborne he never corrects the BBC when they say we are in a recession, which we are not and have not been since the Gordon age. I suppose it helps him to push through much needed government spending cuts under the guise of Austerity.

    The fact that Hague has never had a proper Job or indeed a job at all reflects in his personality. Was it not him that was for helping the rebels in Libya ? gone quiet on that one and now reverts to being a comedian in the House, what a joke this man is !

    What a smug ragbag of jolly, gay clowns

    All that the British fought for yesterday
    It’s time that they were consigned to the past
    And rumbled that he who laughs best laughs last

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”
