Sorry - I thought the cartoon was funny without a particular reference, but it relates to this story about a senior minister in the current UK government

Tories question judgment of 'naive' William Hague - Telegraph

In a highly personal statement on Wednesday, Mr Hague denied any “improper” relationship with Christopher Myers, 25, but admitted that they had shared hotel rooms during the general election campaign this year. Mr Myers resigned from his role this week.
Mr Hague also gave intimate details about his marriage, revealing that his wife, Ffion, had suffered “multiple miscarriages”.
It is understood that Mr Hague made his unusual public statement against the advice of government media experts.
Instead of ending speculation about the matter, the statement attracted extensive public attention and political comment.

Retired in Jan, 2010 at 55, moved to England in May 2016
