The shameless liar Hoon is on Radio 4 as I type this, saying that Blair's leadership wasn't an issue on the doorstep amongst Labour voters in 30 constituencies that he visited during the general election. "It may have been an issue at Westminster, among the chattering classes." Is the man a moron or an inveterate fraud? Both. This is why the word "hoon" now means a blatant and outrageous lie.
