‘We’re all going to die,’ warns Hunt.

Hunt has warned that the selfish action of junior doctors may result in a cataclysmic chain of events which will see every last man, woman and child dying in some kind of freakishly unpredictable event.

‘These are worrying times,’ warns Jeremy, ‘the dark forces of evil are everywhere and without junior docs staffing A+E departments anything could happen. Whatever you do don’t stray too close to open windows, don’t start hammering nails into the skirting boards and don’t think ooo that looks like an interesting yet creepy Victorian fairground ride, I’m going to have a go on that.’

Jeremy’s advice is to wrap yourself up in a great big roll of bubble wrap and lie in the bath for the next couple of days with your eyes closed. And if you do manage to hammer a nail through your hand and end up waiting in A+E for 10 hours he’ll just say ‘told you so!’ with an expression akin to a smug cat enjoying the smell of its own farts. 

Dr Kevin Hinkley is a GP in Edinburgh

  • A odd warning to give when you are the person in charge and you could do something about it!

  • The public are not stupid. Many support juniors. They will use services as usual.
    He is the quintessential politician. All spin, grin and bling. He needs to understand the principle of accountability. The NHS is in a state of flux. He needs to sort it now.

  • We have a dog which has pedigree chum scented wind. Quite revolting really as mostly he hides away under the bed and then the first thing you know with no by your leave you are overwhelmed in fumes. That is the only way you know he is there.
    Like Jeremy Hunt really. He hides away in his protected underground bunker creeping from one place to another. The only way you know he is there is when you come accoss his stench, and you know you have been Jeremyed!

  • I don't know why anyone is waiting for him to lead anything. He is incapable. He has not shown any good leadership qualities. Just bullying tactics
