Arab league members were truly amazed and dismayed when William Hague attended a charity masquerade ball last night dressed as a crusader knight.
Ably supported by the lovely Ffion he staggered in red faced under the weight of the costume and spent most of the night sitting on his arse twiddling his imitation plastic sword.
Williams boss, David something or other found the situation quite amusing especially when his wife and Ffion chose both of their costumes. He attended dressed as pregnant north sea haddock, keeping his face covered by a large fin, only removing it when knocking back the free booze.
Asked about the indignation of the Arab league leadership, he chuckled and said, "What they need is a sense of humour and it's not as if we had burned any of their books."
