Jeremy Hunt says the current NHS crisis is due to a freak meteorological event, known to scientists as ‘winter’.
The hapless health secretary, floundered around various TV studios yesterday, so that journalists and Piers Morgan could take turns to twat him with facts.
“I, err, don’t want to blind you with science” stammered Mr Hunt “but, ahem … ‘Winter is caused by the axis of the Earth in that hemisphere being oriented away from the Sun ’.
Apart from undermining staff self-esteem, Hunt says much of his time is now spent looking for someone to blame.
“The NHS wasn’t wasn’t ready for another Winter because the last one was just 12 months ago. That’s just a fact”.
“But it probably goes back to the last Labour administration. Does anyone know who was Health Secretary in the last government? Andrew Lansley, was it?”
