The inquiry had seen video footage of a British soldier verbally abusing Iraqi detainees. This footage is hugely in the public arena. It has inevitably even been on YouTube. These events happened on Hoon's watch as Defence Secretary. Hoon pitches up at the inquiry. Not unreasonably, counsel to the inquiry assumes that Hoon has seen the footage.
'Nope' says Hoon. 'Never seen that'.
Counsel to the inquiry expresses some surprise.
Then Hoon raises a concern as to the genuineness of the footage.
It is explained to this prize pillock that theer is no doubt as to the authenticity of this footage.
Happily Hoon is now out of the House of Commons and political life. One can only declare one's pleasure. On a cheerier note, Laci the Chinese Crested (link to left) tips the rabbit off that Banksy may have been caught at it. Follow the link and have a good weekend. the rabbit is hopping off to London Town. Have some more Howling Wolf as a parting shot - Spoonful to be exact.
