What is the cost of Hoon?

Following the revelation that Europe Minister Geoff Hoon’s new office door plaque now reads, “Minister for Europe – Attending Cabinet”, the
Independent
reports that a Parliamentary Question has been tabled asking to know the cost of the new plaque.

A previous question asked, “What is the point of Geoff Hoon”.

    Maybe they’ve got this story garbled, and the plaque is really one of those sign things that people stick on their doors to let people know where they are.

    As well as ‘attending cabinet’ it can also say ‘down the allotment’ or ‘gone shopping’…

  2. Nick says:

    “Invading a country” – that sort of thing?

  3. Did anyone see Question Time the other week where Hoon was talking about his imaginery phone calls with Donald Rumsfeld during the Iraq war?

    As if Rumsfeld really took calls from Hoon – the Downing Street tea lady had more influence over government policy at the time.

    Who told you he had that plaque on his door? Saw his door recently, the foreign office one at any rate – no plaque like that on the door…

  5. Steve – next time you’re outside Hoon’s door, send us a picture and we’ll print it to clear up any confusion. We can’t promise that the Indy will do the same.

    It was in the Indy? Say no more, chums…

    Instead of giving him the plaque, maybe they meant to give him the plague!

    Like a classic Simpsons episode …
    Mr Burns (to Homer): “As punishment for your desertion, it’s company policy to give you the plague.”
    Smithers: “Uh, sir, that’s the plaque.”
    Mr Burns: “Ah yes, the special demotivational plaque to break what’s left of your spirit. Because, you see, you’re here forever.”

    By the way, there is a very interesting story in Private Eye about Alan Johnson’s Paypal appeal. The Paypal account is in the name of his campaign trustee – a certain K. Milner.

    Yes, its allegedly the same Karl Milner of the Lobbygate scandal of 1998.
