On William Hague

UPDATE : 1st September 2010 – I’ve noticed an unusually large number of hits today on this blog entry I posted on February 5th 2010 – Doubtless due to increased interested in William Hague following the resignation of special advisor Christopher Myers.

Well I don’t have masses of repect for Mr Hague – but I have more than some in the blogosphere. If you’re looking to dig the dirt on William I suggest you look elsewhere – I’m not that kind of blogger !

Seen a few pics about of William Hague this week, I bet some of you remember him as Tory Tot in 1977. Some of you will remember him wearing a baseball cap. Some will remember him boasting of drinking 14 pints of beer a day in his teens. Yet more may remember as Conservative Party leader.

Unfortunately for William I think some of you may have forgotten about him . Well shame on you because he’s Shadow Foreign Secretary and unofficial Deputy to Conservative Party Leader David Cameron, and everyone should know that.

So here’s my pictorial tribute to fellow Yorkshireman The Right Honourable William Hague MP. Of course the Conservative Party has changed beyond all recognition since he was leader. Or so I’m told.
