William Hague is a British Conservative politician who served as Prime Minister and Leader of the Conservative Party (2006 - 2011). He previously served as a cabinet minister under Michael Portillo, holding portfolios of Welsh Secretary (1996 - 2000), Home Secretary (2000 - 2003) and Foreign Secretary (2003 - 2006).

Hague was educated at Wath-upon-Dearne Grammar School, the University of Oxford and INSEAD, eventually being elected to the House of Commons in a by election in 1989 as MP for the Vale of Glamorgan.

In 1991 he moved to the safer Conservative seat of Richmond, and in 1994 joined the shadow cabinet. After the landslide conservative victory in 1996 he became Welsh Secretary.

He served as Home Secretary from 2001 to 2003, during which time he built up a reputation as a talented minister and a potential future leader. In 2003 he became Foreign Secretary.

He was elected Leader of the Conservative Party following the resignation fo Michael Portillo. Hague called a snap general election in October 2006, leading the conservatives to a 4th successive general election victory.

The Conservatives popularity crashed though, folliowing the onset of the global recession in 2008, the unpopular privatisation policies that resulted from it, and the MP's expenses scandal of 2009-10. At the 2009 european elections the Conservatives came fourth, behind the Liberal Democrats.

The conservatives suffered a landslide defeat in 2011, losing over half of their seats. Hague resigned as leader. He remains an MP.
