1. This is what happens when a former leader of the Conservatives walks into your hen party.
Former foreign secretary William Hague this weekend gatecrashed a hen party from Rochdale at a sausage festival and asked why they were all wearing L-plates.
Yes, that happened.
“We went glamping and the site we were on was hosting a sausage and beer festival,” explained Jess Shepherd, one of the attendees. “He was giving an award to the most popular sausage.”
“He got out of his car and we all fell apart. He was a great sport, he was asking all about the wedding and chatted to us for quite a while. But he didn’t know what the L-plates meant,” she told BuzzFeed.
The group from Rochdale were celebrating Rhiannan Adamson’s forthcoming marriage on a trip to Bedale, North Yorkshire, within Hague’s constituency.
“We asked him to put his arm around the bride-to-be and he wouldn’t, he said ‘Errrr, no.’ He was obviously not trying to be rude but he’d been told not to touch anyone.”
“It was the weirdest part of the weekend.”
2. The girls uploaded the photo Facebook and joked that Hague was their hen do stripper. Which caused some confusion among friends who thought you could actually hire a William Hague look-a-like stripper.
For the record, Google returns no relevant results for “William Hague stripper”.
