Search on Hague / Jolie / Images and you get this extraordinary photomontage, straight from the secret scrap-book the Foreign Secretary keep under his bed. 'Dame Angelina', indeed. William Hague isn't the first to behave in this lovestruck manner (and I'm not the first to make the comparison): Jack Straw blazed that unseemly trail with Condoleezza Rice. But - oh dear, oh dear.
Do they not have advisers ? As it happens, of course, we know Hague does indeed have advisers: they sometimes camp out in his hotel bedroom. But they haven't saved him from making an eejit of himself this time.
Anyhow, on to the factoid. You've heard of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon ? Well, I am a mere 3 degrees from Dame Angelina, being related to her by marriage. Bet you didn't know that.
