"But Jeremy Hunt, who was appointed yesterday afternoon, warned nine times in one interview that "difficult decisions" would be needed in the coming weeks and months.

"Weíre going to have to take some very tough decisions on both spending and tax," he told Sky News. "Spending will not go up as much as people want and thereíll be more efficiencies to find and we wonít have the speed of tax cuts we are hoping for and some taxes will have to go up. Thatís the reality of the very challenging situation we face."

"Nobody cares about the NHS more than I do"quote from his interview on the Today programme.

Turn sideways, Jeremy, and let's see the nose get longer still.


Same old same old.

What do you expect?

You didn't like the unfunded tax cuts and now you're complaining about possible spending cuts and tax rises.

I'm guessing by your comments that you have no idea who Jeremy Hunt is

We faced these problems who-ever was in No 10 and 11! Would you rather have someone who treated you like an adult, told you the truth and asked you to come along, or treat you like a child and tell you what you want to hear, with a few sweeties as bribes?

I am quite sure Hunt understands the issues surrounding the NHS better than most, but he is a realist. It's probably going to get worse, possibly much worse, before it gets better. There is no way anyone can avoid being impacted in some way. So trying to protect the most vulnerable makes sense. Some will fall down the cracks and there will doubtless be some horror stories ahead of us.

There's more to life than just worrying about financial issues, at least for most of us. So enjoy the game, enjoy the Autumn, your family and friends, and buckle up. It will be a rough ride but we will survive.

Iím no fan of Jeremy but I think a show of realism is necessary as a starting point.

Hopefully this is a preamble before some sensible, logic based decision making as opposed to pure ideological daydreaming that serves no practicality in reality. You can never fix or address any problem that you donít at least first acknowledge. Itís warranted rare appreciation from me!

Well quite. If people cannot see they are being played then they deserve everything they have got coming.

A Tory Prime Minister, on the back of 70+seat majority, probably losing her job because of wanting to bring in tax-cuts. We truly live in Clown World.

And now a w***er like Hunt in a top position. A man who wanted to bring in Covid concentration camps. f*** him.

I think any politician giving an interview, should not be allowed to repeat the same answer to different questions, like lizzy dripping yesterday- there should be a horn , so if they repeat the same answer a loud blast comes their way- it would embarass them and be a tad entertaining for us viewers!

It's a shame that the same doesn't happen for HOL posters who churn out the same drivel time after time

But you and dear Badger must realise that for the vast majority of people they are being plunged into debt to pay for very small beer tax cuts.

Let's face it, they are actually when you look closely, mutton dressed up as lamb.

In fact by pausing tax thresholds you will end up paying £2 for every 13 over the next 4 years due to inflation.

If I remember correctly Gordon Browne first indexed them to inflation.

Make that 2£ for every 1£, not 13 which is a typo, although thinking of it, although you never know.

As I recall, Hunt was the one that ended bursaries for trainee nurses, putting many off from training and was generally reviled within NH professions.

On the subject of 'difficult decisions', caporate tax should be increased to 30%.

Do we really think that if Starbuck's, for instance, were taxed at this rate, they'd stop selling coffee to 50 million people, or whatever, in this country? And, if they did, that there'd be no one who want to step into the market to make profits from it?

Germany, held up by many to be a more successful economy, charge 30% corporate tax.

Why can't multi nationals take some of the brunt of these 'hard decisions'?
