Almost two years after being thumped at the polls, William Hague’s star is back in the ascendancy.
Having prompted nostalgic recollections of his Dispatch Box days with his contribution to the recent war on Iraq debate, Hague is now much in demand on the after-dinner speaking circuit. “He’s shot to the top of our list,” says a spokesman for speakers’ agency JLA.
“His speeches on Iraq seem to have reminded people how good he is. He has the rare talent of being able to deliver keynote speeches as well as being a wonderful gag teller.”
