What an absolute c… Hunt.

Jeremy Hunt (whose nickname begins with a ‘c’, followed by the last three letters of his surname, for those who need an explanation of our headline and lead line) has a knack for putting his foot in it at the wrong time – and, guess what? He’s done it again!

His first act after metaphorically kicking minority prime minister Theresa May in the teeth by refusing to be moved from the Department of Health (forcing her to add ‘and Social Care’ to his title, even though he’s already responsible for it)…

… was to kick Justine Greening in the posterior as she was on her way out of the government.

He clicked the ‘like’ button on a tweet stating that Justine Greening (who also kicked Theresa May in the teeth by refusing to be moved from Education to the DWP – but got the boot, rather than being allowed to stay).

The decision to force Ms Greening out, while caving in to male cabinet members, has triggered an outcry about sexism by Mrs May.

Mr C… Hunt’s rash choice has opened him up to similar accusations.

At least he could fall back on a well-used strategy to limit the damage caused by his gaffe: He said it was an accident.

Some might say that, having had to cancel 55,000 operations because of the NHS winter crisis that could have been avoided if he and the government weren’t so keen to make the health service ripe for privatisation, Mr Hunt’s entire political career has been an accident.

Jeremy Hunt has been left red-faced after he was caught ‘liking’ a tweet announcing Education Secretary Justine Greening had left Theresa May’s Government.

He clicked the like button on the tweet which read: “BREAKING: Justine Greening has quit the government.”

Mr Hunt, who was kept on as Health Secretary with an extended social care role in the shake-up, was forced to explain why he had “liked” the tweet.

He later tweeted: “Like button pressed by accident. Justine was an excellent minister and will be a great loss to govt.”
