The Secretary of State for Health contacted a survivor of female genital mutilation (FGM) and invited her for an interview only in order to ask if she could still have orgasms, it seems. If this is true, he should be sacked at once.

FGM is a serious issue and yet the tone of Jeremy Hunt’s question indicates not only that he wasn’t taking it seriously at all, but that – frankly – he was titillated by it. That is inappropriate to a point well beyond insult.

The person subjected to his questioning – Nimco Ali – seems to have taken it all in her stride; she can be heard laughing at the memory of it, and she said she considered him to be entitled to ask such questions because he’s the Health Secretary.

This Writer takes a different view.

Hunt’s behaviour is yet another reason he is the worst Health Secretary in UK history. Shallow, false and unprofessional, he disgraces every citizen of the United Kingdom.

And yet we put up with him.

Why?

Jeremy Hunt has been accused of asking a Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) campaigner whether “girls like you” can still have an orgasm.

Nimco Ali claimed the Health Secretary found her via a Google search and that he had no idea about FGM at the time.

The former civil servant, who is the director of the Daughters of Eve non-profit organisation, told the News Roast podcast that the pair met at his Whitehall office four years ago.

“This man is the Secretary of State for Health but he has no idea about FGM and I don’t think he even reads his briefings,” said Ms Ali, recalling her thoughts at the time.

She said he asked: “What I really want to know Nimco, is, can girls like you have an orgasm?”

The Department of Health refused to comment on Ms Ali’s allegation.
