Hague’s adviser resigns

FOREIGN secretary William Hague’s special adviser resigned yesterday because of “untrue and malicious” allegations about the nature of the two men’s relationship.

Hague denied suggestions Christopher Myers, a 25-year-old Durham graduate, was appointed for improper reasons. Although he admitted the pair occasionally shared hotel rooms during the general election campaign, Hague said: “[Christopher] is easily qualified for the job he holds. Any suggestion that his appointment was due to an improper relationship between us is utterly false.” The foreign secretary also revealed he and his wife have suffered multiple miscarriages and are still grieving the loss of a pregnancy this summer. His rebuttal followed inquiries by a Sunday newspaper and claims on the Guido Fawkes website. Hague insisted he had a strong relationship with wife Ffion.
