We thought there was nothing left to surprise us about bald oddity William Hague.
We were wrong.
The hypocritical half-wit has been revelling in his Prism-inspired mantra “if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear” but it may well be that his musings are about to backfire big time.
You see Willie is far from the man we think he is.
Willie is so deep in excrement of his own making there’s not enough Andrex in the land to clean it up.
It’s only a matter of time before the authorities look into Willie’s links to notorious Dolphin Square.
They might also look into the North Wales child abuse scandal that Willie conveniently whitewashed and which is now being investigated by Operation Pallial.
They might also care to remind themselves of the US Embassy cables released by Wikileaks that shone a light over intelligence service concerns of Willie’s friendship with Alan Duncan MP.
According to the Guardian:
” “The leaked US diplomatic cables reveal a particular intelligence interest in Alan Duncan, at the time shadow minister for prisons. Duncan, a former oil trader who is now international development minister, is gay. He once shared a London flat with William Hague, who has felt obliged to deny public speculation about his own sexuality.
“A 22 January 2010 cable was signed off by Elizabeth Pitterle, head of intelligence operations. She thanked the London embassy for its intelligence on Duncan’s “friendship with … William Hague”, saying it was “particularly insightful and exceptionally well timed, as analysts are preparing finished products on the Conservative leadership for senior policymakers”.
“The cable called for further intelligence on “Duncan’s relationship with Conservative party leader David Cameron and William Hague”, and asked: “What role would Duncan play if the Conservatives form a government? What are Duncan’s political ambitions?”
Here is the cable in full:

They might want to look again at William Hague’s role in the UK Government.
Should he really be in charge of the FCO?
Willie’s not the man we think he is.
He’s a bloody liability.
