A welcome for Mr Hoon

Former Defence Secretary Geoff Hoon does not spend all his time plotting to pull the rug from under Gordon Brown.

He is due to speak next month in a panel discussion on racism organised by Yad Vashem UK.

A spokesman for the charity described the ex-minister’s appearance as “a great coup”.

Not Mr Hoon’s favourite choice of word, I would think.
