As people drifted off, it was just Hague left with his press lady, who informed him that he had a live interview lined up where they wanted to talk about the Litvinenko case and road pricing. Old Bill didn't look too happy at that news. In fact, if I recall correctly, he placed his hands on the bar, leaned on them and say he 'didn't know anything about road pricing' and that he wasn't that confident on Litvinenko.
I had a look at the interview on the TV and he was right, he didn't know that much. I'm so happy that a policy being debated in the House of Commons today which is of considerable importance, especially if Galileo has anything to do with it, is off the radar of the Shadow Foreign Affairs Secretary.
Poor old Billy! Go and read the rest, including why Galileo is important.
What I find extraordinary is that I know a decent amount about road-charging, and Litvinenko and I'm just a humble blogger, with real work to do too. If Hague hasn't got a decent idea about these subjects—and assuming that he is typical of all MPs—then just precisely what are we paying these cunts for?
Shouldn't our elected representatives have a pretty broad and detailed grasp of political issues? After all, that is what the bastards are paid for.
