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.

    Matt says:

    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’

    Dianne Abbott is on the Daily Politics. Thick or what?

      You xenophobe.

      No whats, just thick.

      Maq­boul says:

      And they propose to put this fat slob in charge of the nation’s health?

        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.

    RED ED - SON OF BROWN says:

    Len, what shall I do now ?

  4. 5
    Right Full Rudder says:

    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.

      Matt says:

      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!

      PC Dixon says:

      Doesn’t matter , in the end they DID LISTEN and made the right decision.

    Nicely delivered – Over the back of the sofa style

    The Military Government of Mali says:

    The guy clearly has a future on the after dinner circuit.

    Steve says:

    Good speech by Richard Shepherd.

    Red Ed's non-predator union bosses says:

    Len McCluskey

    Diane Fatbott says:

    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Ecoloons says:

    Have they checked the toilets to see if Miliband is hiding out there.

  13. 25
    P l e b says:

    Those of you who think Hague is the good guy should google Hague & North Wales Care Homes Enquiry.

    When are we b0mbing Syria then, B1lly?

    A good day to bury good news? says:

    “The Voice: Jessie J quits as coach”

  17. 29
    Piss off says:

    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.

    333 donations from private healthcare sources totalling £8.3 million gifted to the Tories. http://shar.es/A5xuQ

    I don’t know how Osborne has the cheek to show his face, let alone laugh, with the damage he is doing to the British economy.

      Maqb­oul says:

      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.

      Bit out of date with your pointless piffle Mr Anon.

      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.

    Owen Jones says:

    onwards to the revolution

  21. 36

    PC Dixon says:

    Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant ………………..

  23. 41
    Fed Up says:

    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 !

  24. 44
    albacore says:

    What a smug ragbag of jolly, gay clowns
    Pissing themselves while they witness our towns
    Fill with aliens; and they give away
    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

      bencorde says:

      Well said Sir. Traitors, liars and thieves to a man. Only UKIP can deliver us from their treachery and restore freedom and sovereignty

  25. 45
    bencorde says:

    Wouldn’t give much credence to the utterances of this devious little prawn any more than I would Cameron. They’re all the opposition now, the whole rotten lot of them. Thank God we’ve got UKIP as the true opposition.

  26. 48
    Credit where its due says:

    Pure Hague. Pure gold.

  27. 49
    Chris The Leatherman says:

    A Pub Quiz question for you

    Q) Which Two people were in the cabinet at a younger age than William Hague ?
    A) Winston Churchill and Pitt The Younger .

    Big Len says:

    What a waste of breath.

  29. 56
    Nemesis says:

    Listened to much more of Hague’s speech than is on this short video and he was funny and brilliant. Certainly demolished Labour and it was a pity that Millipede wasn’t there to take it on the chin.

  30. 57
    Post hoc says:

    Sublime, Mr. Hague.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
