[Jeremy Hunt] told the BBC’s health editor, Hugh Pym, that ‘there are no excuses’ [for the crisis in the English NHS] – after a winter of the Tories making nothing but excuses – before going on to blame everything he could think of.

It was one of the most embarrassing performances by a supposedly ‘senior’ politician since Michael Howard crashed and burned in front of Paxman – and he didn’t even have the excuse of a tough interviewer, as he was handled like fine china by Pym.

Comedian David Schneider nailed it when he tweeted:
