Rick is discussing:

Lord Hague says the government is "shallow" and "politically weak" for delaying plans to curb obesity.

Hahaha, oh, you're just going to call him "Lord Hague" are you, BBC?

You're going to pretend anyone ever took him seriously by avoiding reminding people who you're talking about with an actual picture of the man, or using his actual name?

"Don't worry, everyone, this man is totally credible and when we were making fun of him back in the 90s it was just for the bants!" -The BBC, probably.
