Jeremy Hunt’s planned promotion shows Tories value TREACHERY above all else

Theresa May and Jeremy Hunt are the Tory fools who have created the crisis in the English NHS.

What a message to give the people of the UK: That under Conservative rule, cheats do prosper and treachery is a valued trait for government ministers.

That is the message being given by Theresa May, who reportedly wants to promote Jeremy Hunt in a Cabinet reshuffle planned for Monday (January 8).

The only thing making her hesitate is the fact that the NHS winter crisis that he has engineered – at her request – might cast a shadow over her plan to make him First Minister, replacing the disgraced Damian Green as her de facto deputy prime minister.

Despite all her best attempts at rigging media coverage of the catastrophe, public opinion is that Mr Hunt has made a pig’s ear of managing the health service in England.

With that in mind, why would the British people accept him in the second most responsible job in government?

Here’s how the Torygraph has reported Mrs May’s dilemma:

Hunt when she reshuffles her Cabinet next week because of the worsening winter crisis in the NHS, The Daily Telegraph understands.

Mrs May wants the Health Secretary to take over the role of de facto deputy prime minister vacated by Damian Green last month but has been warned that the timing could not be worse.

She will spend the weekend deciding whether to keep Mr Hunt in his post until the spring, rather than moving him as part of a reshuffle aimed at refreshing the public face of the Government.

It’s ludicrous, isn’t it?

She has to try “refreshing the public face of the government” because so many of her Cabinet members have been sacked after a series of scandals late last year.

None of them are considered trustworthy by the British public, and she is thought to be the worst of all.

As for Mr Hunt – well, consider the reactions to his reported promotion on the social media:

Mrs May can dress Jeremy Hunt up as prettily as she likes, but she’ll never cover up his stink.

    Hunt, with his stupid inane smirk, is one of the most corrupt and dishonest individuals in this corrupt minority Tory government (propped up by terrorist sympathisers).

    You wanted Jeremy HUnt to GO and now he has, and the only way you would expect, a cabinet reshuffle. And Deputy Prime Minister is a none existen, minister without portfolio post, created for John Prescott to give him something while not giving him anything in reality in return for him keeping unions quiet during New Labour years hence no protest re privatisation of NHS and services and departments.

    Nick Clegg got it next, again a none existent post with no power or position but which title suggests it.

    Who is in next is the question and as the agenda has already been set and kept on course since Blair brought it in, privatisation of NHS and disability abuse with continue

    In the name of god move him. Defence would be good that’s just up his street. No ground forces left. RAF flying drones and Navy aircraft carriers with no planes. Even he can’t do any more damage.

    QUOTE:- So @Jeremy_Hunt – Do you think it’s appropriate for a multi-millionaire MP to make expense claims of 24p for car journeys of 900 metres? #NHSWinterCrisis….UNQUOTE
    (OR IS HE?) He probably walks further than that in the H of P .the corridors are so long (or so i gather, having never set foot in the place but watching just the opening of parliament last time you can see they are more than 100 metre’s. and if he cant walk that far how is it they can use a length much less for defining if someone is disabled enough for ESA and/or PIP. PLEASE DONT TELL ME HE HAS A MOBILITY SCOOTER FOR HIS OWN USE WHILST “WALKING” THE CORRIDOES OF POWER.
