    As the row continues into the death of Dr david Kelly, Geoff Hoon let the PM take the flak while he enjoyed a jolly at the Grand Prix yesterday, apparently it was official business as he is studying F1 refuelling techniques that he wants the AAC groundcrews to employ

    - -from today's Sun.

    Hmmmmmmmmm now the question is...do we believe him?

    SUN STORY [/quote]
     
  2. One thing is for sure... they don't get any better than The Sun's John Kay. If anyone can bring Hoon down, it's him.
     
  3. It shouldn't be a journalist who brings Goon down, the man himself should resign, along with that other idiot, BLiar. Time to go Mr BLiar and Co.
     
  4. What? Are you suggesting that every time a civil servant or soldier commits suicide, the Defence Secretary should go into deep mourning?
    If he had not been seen, the Press would have claimed he was 'lying low'.
    FS, if any Sun journalist brings down any government, that really would be time to start worrying.
     
  5. Poor old Geoff, working on a Sunday, but I suppose it goes with the pay grade. That sort of field trip could only be carried out by the top man, after all if its for the AAC only the best will do.

    Was the guy in the green beret and green and orange kilt in the Defence Secretary's party?
     
  6. John Kay is full of sh*t. He's another one who receives leaked information, only he recieves his via disgruntled soldiers and if you read the Sun, you'll have come to accept that the level of intelligence recieved and reported on, is about the same level as is read in the Beano. Bring down Hoon? Get real will you. Kay writes for a comic, which is generally read by Navvies, Toms and people who are to shy to buy the Sunday Sport.

    Anyway, what the f*ck was that daft arrse in the Bogtrotter getup all about? If the Bowser mongs can learn something from F1 pit crews, perhaps the Monkeys can learn a bit about traffic control from him.

    Yeah nice one MS. It was a very novel traffic calming measure. Some mad t*sser running down the fast lane onto oncoming traffic would certainly be more effective on the M25 than all those speed limits.

    Shame it wasn't Hoon on the track ....
     
  9. If it had been, I don't think the drivers would have been making such an effort to avoid him.
     
  10. Dr. "Voodoo Chile" John Reid? After all, it wouldn't be the first time he'd changed ministries at ludicrious speed, and he's supposedly an expert :roll: Maybe not, after all who goes to health?

    Charles Clarke? Large, booze-guzzling, blokish type? Highly rated, on his way up to the top? Got a big job on at education, though.

    John Denham - Home Office minister, supposedly knows what he's doing and efficient. Waiting for his next jump, and hell, it's just another bunch of men in uniforms, right?

    Patricia Hewitt - current Sos for DTI, former management consultant, first lass in the job (good politics)? Former lawyer for the NCCL and the Womens' Coalition....maybe not...

    Bollocks. give the job to PTP.
     
  11. Claire Short. And why not? Great (?) Britain has gone tits up in a mad sort of way, so give her a chance.
     
  12. That will always work for me............
