William Hague, often mistaken for Kryten, the bald, strange talking robot from Sci-fi comedy Red Dwarf, has been advised by his boss, Dave (Doolittle) Cameron, to take speech therapy lessons after a near fatal incident in the London Science Museum.
Hague, best known for not doing enough about the current Spanish attempts to annexe Gibraltar, was opening a new space exploration exhibition when he was attacked by the fictional Ellen Ripley (a character from the Alien series of films).
I just acted instinctively said Ripley. "He is so like the evil robot in the Alien Movie!".
Fortunately a visiting Japanese robotics expert was able to screw Hague's head back on with an Allen key.
Hague said after the incident, (which many people thought was a promotional stunt) that his way of moving and speaking like a robot might appear sexy, but it was actually a result of drinking too much lemonade in his Grandad's pop factory when he was a baseball cap wearing nipper.
