Jeremy Hunt: ‘Come and get a suntan in St James’s Park’

THE rain. Always the rain. Here’s what Jeremy Hunt, the Culture Secretary told foreigners back in July 2012, according to the Times:

We have “much better weather than they think,” he said, announcing the Government’s “Great” advertising campaign in 14 cities across the world. “We have lower rainfall than Paris. We have to make sure people understand the reality about the weather.” He added: “It is not always as hot as New York but much more pleasant.

Jeremy Hunt Is Rhyming Slang In Liverpool

JEREMY Hunt is now rhyming slang in some parts of Liverpool. The Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt suggested that hooliganism had played a part in the Hillsborough football disaster when 96 Liverpool fans died.

X Factor And Strictly Come Dancing Go To War

simon-cowell1THE BBC has “let Britain down”, says Simon Cowell, to Sun readers.

Simon Cowell is “STRICTLY SEETHING” with “fury” at BBC “over X Factor clash with Rival show”.

The X Factor is on the telly at the same time as Strictly Come Dancing. This is a crisis of democracy that splits voters between voting for a dumpy stage school also-ran or the part-trained non-dancing celebrity.

Both shows are on at the same as YouTube, which features lots of undiscovered singers who can sing well and any number of nonentities not dancing well.

Cowell said: “It is the wrong decision for the simple reason the public don’t want it to happen. They are the two most popular shows on TV and the fact they go out at the same time is crazy. Everyone knows that.”
