William Hague was on good form in his speech at the excellent British Council for Offices annual dinner last week. His description of how to tackle Prime Minister's Question Time was worth the price of the dinner. Two quips worth stealing: following a presidential election in the US a few years ago, he noticed a car sticker reading: 'Cheer up.

Only one of them can win!'

And still on an American theme, he recalled a newspaper interview with Monica Lewinsky in which she said she wanted to become a White House intern rather than take a regular job because she didn't want an employer 'breathing down her neck'.
