Foreign secretary William Hague has spent £10,000, stuffing the Foreign Office snake, ‘Albert’. Hague revealed Albert had received a good stuffing, speaking at the Tory party conference in Birmingham back in October.
“He is looking very optimistic about the future of our foreign policy’, Hague said.
This has led the Guido Fawkes blog submitting an FOI request to the Foreign office, demanding to know how the money has been spent.
Hague’s department replied: “as a gift to the FCO, Albert is therefore regarded as an FCO asset…the FCO is obliged to maintain its assets and the work on ‘Albert’ was essential maintenance.
