A little bird told us here at the Waverley Web – before it was stuffed, that our MP Jeremy Hunt turned down an important role in Boris Johnson’s new cabinet.
With a rictus grin on his face – you know the one – he told all his Twitter followers…
Yes, you guessed. Our little Westminster bird told us he believed he may have turned down the new post of Minister for Entrepreneurs?!
We appreciate he has been a Minister for most of his elected career, so it is heartwarming to see this tweet about his family in Hammersmith. No mention of his poor neglected Surrey electorate though. Some commentators have thought, given the polling in Guildford and South West Surrey of a Yellow Wave, he may not stand for re-election again in the forthcoming inevitable Autumn election.
One wag suggested he really wanted to be Housing Minister to improve his portfolio!
