Coincidental Gas Drilling in Surrey Constituency Announced

Drilling down into the subtext of yesterday’s Surrey Hills gas site announcement, politicos might infer an additional motivation for the decision by the government. Minister Stuart Andrew has overruled the local Tory-run council to approve gas drilling on the edge of Surrey Hills, with three years of exploratory drilling now set to commence. The government’s announcement comes despite outspoken opposition from the local South West Surrey Tory MP… would-be leadership challenger, Jeremy Hunt. Groundbreaking revenge…

UPDATE:  Hunt has written to Michael Gove to protest that “the decision to allow drilling at Dunsfold is bitterly disappointing and wrong both economically and environmentally”.

Hunt Finally Confirms Leadership Intentions

The least surprising secret in Westminster has finally been confirmed: Jeremy Hunt wants to be Prime Minister. Taking to Twitter just now the former leadership contender says that while he didn’t want this vote, given it’s now happening”, I will be voting for change”. He believes “we are no longer trusted by the electorate… we are set to lose the next general election”. 

Hunt has had a leadership campaign in place since at least last March, when Guido revealed Hunt had taken on two former SpAds to work for him in parliament: Christina Robinson (SpAd from 2012 to 2019), and Adam Smith (SpAd from 2010 – 2012). At the time he also had his own health advisor, Dr Raf Kochaj – to advise on Covid. Guido’s not sure how many of Jeremy’s colleagues will buy that he didn’t want this to happen – could he swear on a bible he didn’t have a letter in with Brady?

Hunt Definitely Doesn’t Want a Tory Leadership Election

Maybe Hunt is one of these Tories who thinks it might be good to lose the next election? He could become leader of the opposition…

‘Erratic Genius’ Dominic Cummings Misses Deadline to Submit Evidence Against Matt Hancock

Following reports that Cummings had somehow missed the deadline to submit written evidence against Matt Hancock, Times Radio’s Aasmah Mir asked Jeremy Hunt whether the Health and Social Care Committee had received anything from Cummings as of this morning:

No… Dominic Cummings made some very serious allegations against [Matt Hancock] in particular, saying that he lied repeatedly. So we will put those allegations to him [Hancock], but you know we haven’t received the written evidence to back those claims up that we were expecting. But we’ll be putting [..] all those allegations to him to give him his rightful chance to respond.”

Guido spent about 7 hours watching Cummings insist that the government is an incompetent cabal led by donkeys, and now the same man appears to have forgotten to hand in his homework. Maybe the Select Committee should check if Cummings has decided to upload the evidence to Twitter instead…
