When people hear the name Jeremy Hunt, they don’t immediately think ‘future Prime Minister’. Primarily because they think:
Treacherous, goblin-faced wanker.
Total fucking penis.
After they’ve finished thinking through such expletives, however, people still don’t tend to think ‘future Prime Minister’.
And why would they? How could it even come to pass?
This is a man whose lack of popularity is only eclipsed by his lack of any positive personality traits. And yet he still seems to be going for it, according to recent reports.
But all is not as it seems.
Out of this world
There are two types of people in this universe:
- People who think Jeremy Hunt should be shot into the sun.
- Jeremy Hunt himself.
There may be dimensions in which he’s less reviled, though. And ever since the DUP discovered the magic money tree, there’s been cash going spare to throw science at such nonsense.
Off The Perch was alerted to Hunt’s extra-planar bid for power by alternative-dimension Brian Blessed:
Things were going quite well in our dimension after Supreme Leader Miliband reversed climate change. The improvement to the planet’s environment made it more attractive to aliens, though, and we were promptly invaded by some real shits.
The aliens don’t like managing the day-to-day stuff, so they needed someone who was happy to lord it up over his fellow human beings – a real mendacious arsehole who was happy to oversee a cruel system that chewed people up and spat them back out again.
Turned out this Hunt fellow has some experience of that, and so he was hired.
You may think all this sounds a bit unrealistic.
Still, though, you’ve got to admit that it’s at least ten times more plausible than Jeremy Hunt becoming the PM of this reality.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
