Hoon - tamed and half dead

I have to say, dear readers, that I’m starting to find Geoff Hoon kind of pitiful.

It’s not that I’m now supporting him or anything.

But in the same way one feels at the end of a Godzilla movie, when the rampaging lizard has finally been tamed and is now lying bloody and half-dead with a small monster’s tear gathering in its eye – he’s just so weak.

His fall from grace has been a spectacular political implosion. Nine months ago he was a secretary of state. Since then he’s been sacked, passed over, blamed for a botched coup, suspended and investigated.

When he was caught on camera in the ‘lobbygate’ film it was obvious that the post-MP job offers have not exactly been rolling in, like they have for Pat Hewitt (see post below).

In fact it was pretty clear that Hoon hasn’t got a clue what he’s doing when it comes to this kind of thing.

Now he’s been sacked from his UN job – the only thing he had left practically.

All that can happen now is for the bank to repossess his home/homes and the destruction will be complete.

I dunno. Seven properties to rent out. £65K payoff in June.
He'll be ok.

Did you know that in Australia the word 'hoon' means anti-social behaviour? Is he aptly surnamed?

Yes Hoon is a hoon. It means the same in blighty. Although hoon now means a very naughty word on some other blogs. Like the Guido Fawkes blog etc..
Oh and I forgot to mention the hoons pension that will help ease him into retirement. £50K a year or something.
