Available for Work

I have no idea what this man's politics are, and it may be wise not to pry too deep, lest we discover.........

I can't help thinking that he sings from the right hymnsheet, however, and Idle, as can been seen above, is a close personal friend. I see him as a classic aspirational hard worker, one who takes complete responsibility for himself, yet whose teamwork and leadership are of the highest order. Now that his glorious competitive career is over, perhaps he can be encouraged to throw his hat into the ring for a safe, um, Tory Edinburgh seat (Malcolm Rifkind's old constituency springs to mind), and become, by stages, Minister of Sport, Culture Secretary, Chairman of the British Olympic Committee and eventually supremo of the IOC itself, if Seb Coe has vacated it and Ben Ainslie is not by then the heir apparent. It is high time the upper reaches of sports administration were purged of the corruption and cant that has held sway too long.

Sir Christopher Hoy is the man for the job.

Do you think he's politically aware enough ?

I mean - he's immersed himself totally in his sport for so long.

The much-missed John Cole would know the answer to this, but is he any relation to Sir Joffrey Hoy?

Hondootedly, Alceste.
