Hague and hyperbole

John Kerry's Brokered Deal Welcomed By William Hague

Foreign Secretary William Hague has welcomed the announcement that Israel and the Palestinians will meet to finalise an agreement on relaunching peace talks for the first time in five years.

Hague is a buffoon trying to give the impression of a sensible and responsible politician (if such an creature actually exists). His comments, full of hyperbole and exaggerated optimism, smack more of a minor character, trying to grab a little piece of the limelight, just in case something positive comes out of the "talks". As I have commented previously, Israel has no interest or intention  to reach any form of settlement with the Palestinians.
