The old ones are the best

This is the funniest political speech I've ever heard - matched only by Michael Foot's comparison of Keith Joseph with a watchmaker many years ago. Foot and Hague are two quite brilliant speakers. If anyone's heard the Foot recording, and can direct me to it, I'd be most grateful - as will my visitors. I laughed like a drain when I saw this Hague video clip first time around, and am grateful to Guido for putting it up again.

I agree with you....Hague is hilarious - even the opposition cannot keep a straight face. He's not a Brit; he's a Yorkshireman through and through. He would make a good Presiding Officer in a future English Parliament, or as an English PM. Would that we had someone of his wit and perspicacity!

I'm sure the late and great Pat Hannan has spoken about that very funny Michael Foot speech in one of his superb shows. Get on to your pals at BBC Cymru. I don't know about you but I was a bit surprised that as a mark of respect that one of his shows wasn't broadcast last night. You don't know what you've lost until it's gone.....
