If you were hoping for a less inept Foreign Secretary now that Jeremy Hunt has replaced Boris Johnson, you haven’t been watching the NHS – and your hopes will be dashed.
Jeremy Hunt’s wife Lucia Guo is Chinese. They have been married since 2009. Hunt was meeting Chinese officials.
Yet he tells them that his wife is Japanese:
Based on Hunt’s history as Health Secretary, taking our NHS into unprecedented crisis, as well as the general record of hopeless incompetence of this Tory government, things can only go downhill – so how long before he makes a slip that causes serious affront to another country.
This incident might be funny, but there’s a serious side to it. Hunt’s NHS tenure was a disaster, but striking doctors and nurses, or angry patients and relatives, don’t have armies and nuclear weapons, or the ability to impose trade tariffs and sanctions.
