Seen and Hurd

by Stephen Tall on February 15, 2007

According to single-sourced gossip-mongers Popbitch:

Lord Douglas Hurd was seen last week at a foreign policy think-tank seminar near Temple, “trying to get in but unable to work the lift. He didn’t seem to know which button to push, or indeed that one had to push a button to make it move at all.”

Good to remember that this man was for years our Foreign secretary. Let’s hope his finger was never close to the nuclear button.

Personally I’m a little relieved. Surely it would have been more disturbing if he’d shown himself to be trigger-happy when trying to work the lift?
