As Boris Johnson resigned from his post as Foreign Secretary, we were all keen to learn who would take over the mantle of this great office of state.

Who is the new foreign secretary? Is it someone from Love Island?

Then Theresa May made the extremely controversial appointment of Jeremy Hunt. This is how he reacted to the news.

Massive wrench for me to leave health – I know some staff havent found me the easiest Health Sec but the NHS, and particularly patient safety, has become my passion & it really was the greatest privilege of my life to serve for so many years

And this is how the rest of us reacted.

Of course, it also meant that hed be leaving the NHS job.

May I be the first to congratulate @Jeremy_Hunt on his new job. The NHS could not have asked for a better birthday present.

Jeremy Hunt is made foreign Secretary after killing so many people by ruining the NHS, May thought it was time he started killing people overseas.

Please leave enough time to go through security. Now Jeremy Hunt is Foreign Secretary, it can take up to 3 months to get an X-ray for your hand luggage.

Hunt: So when do we start privatising? Shall we sell off Peru?

Adviser: It doesnt work like that.

Hunt: India? My friends at Virgin would love to run India.

Adviser: No.

Hunt: We'll still call it India. No-one will know.

Adviser: No!

Jeremy Hunt replaces Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.
Like getting rid of the dog shit in your garden then coming back inside to find your cat has vomited in your shoe.

Thank goodness medical expert Jeremy Hunt is also the greatest mind in international diplomacy and coincidentally has solved all of the NHS's problems so is free to tackle a new role.
