Jeremy Hunt congratulates the flu for shafting the NHS

Through the K Hole

The flu has achieved great things, a slightly envious Jeremy Hunt has admitted.

‘In just a few short weeks this humble virus has transformed the NHS,’ Mr Hunt said.

‘It has flooded waiting rooms with disgruntled patients and forced over-worked GPs to take even more risks, to work even harder and to stay open even longer; in short its brought an already fragile and underfunded system to its knees…

‘I’m impressed. I’ve been trying to do this sort of shit for years!’

Jeremy added: ‘I’m planning to meet the virus in my offices next week and when I do I’m going to give it a big slap on the back and a peerage.

‘It’s hard to imagine that such a primitive organism whose only role in life is to ruthlessly parasite and destroy others is actually going to be sitting in the house of lords… Oh hang on a minute, maybe that’s not too hard to imagine.’

The flu virus, which doesn’t even have a back to slap, was too busy doing what Jeremy wished he could do to comment.

    Agent Hunt,
    It appears that this new chemical weapon H3N2 works out very well for you. Please manufacture more and release them m various parts of England. Time to give a lesson to these b*****d GPs.

  • H3N2 is a free radical, and should be referred to as 'H3N2
    H6N2 and H4N2 and H2N2 would be allowed (though less likely), and of course N2 is fine, but odd numbers of H indicate free radicals, which are more reactive and destructive.
    How about we fill the houses of parliament with them, to the exclusion of O2?

  • Great scapegoat for Hunt to blame for all the problems with the NHS
