Hague joins praise for Jolie’s courage

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

Much praise has, quite ap­pro­pri­ately, come the way of An­gelina Jolie for an­nounc­ing the news of her dou­ble mas­tec­tomy with such im­pres­sive dig­nity. Can­cer char­i­ties and sur­vivors have praised her ar­ti­cle in the New York Times.

Wil­liam Hague, the UK for­eign sec­re­tary, who re­cently ac­com­pa­nied Jolie on a trip to the Demo­cratic Repub­lic of the Congo, also paid trib­ute. “She is a coura­geous lady and a very pro­fes­sional lady,” Hague said. “She gave no sign that she was un­der­go­ing such treat­ment and I think she’s a very brave lady, not only to carry on with her work so well dur­ing such treat­ment, but also to write about it now and talk about it.”
