Daily Telegraph:

Sketch: Ready... Aim... You're fired!

"Philip Hammond, the Defence Secretary, is what as known as “a safe pair of hands”. In other words, he’s intensely boring. At the dispatch box, anyway. For all I know, in private he may be the liveliest company you could wish for, his conversation as light and heady as the first flute of champagne.

But when delivering a statement to the Commons, as he did today… goodness, he’s dull. Crushingly dull. If the Army really needs to make cuts, they should try using recordings of his speeches as a cheap alternative to tear gas."
