One isn't impressed

Loved this Hoonish bit from Black Dog...

In his first public speech since quitting as Black Rod, Lieutenant-General Sir Michael Willcocks recalled how ex-Lord Chancellor Charlie Falconer apologised to the Queen at the 2005 State Opening of Parliament for the over-long Queen's Speech written for her by No10.

Geoff Hoon, Commons Leader at the time, chipped in limply: "We tried to take as much out as we could, Ma'am."

HM snapped: "Well you didn't do a very good job, did you?"

I think Her Majesty was making a general comment there.

Any wonder why HOON is now a political insult like being a Mandelson "chump"
