Hunt 'ready to blame anyone rather than government'

Delegates at the British Medical Conference have reacted to their vote of no confidence in the Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Consultant Jacky Davis told the conference that "Mr Hunt is about as popular as George Osborne at the Olympic medal ceremony".

"Mr Hunt is ready to blame anyone and everyone rather than the government" she continued.

"His new cunning plan is to cut back the service, the staff and then blame the NHS and say it can only be saved by the private sector".
