Superhero MP

I hadn't been particularly impressed with Jeremy Hunt's performance on First Time Voters' Question Time, thinking him rather bland and not nearly independent enough in his views (much too tied to the party line). A subsequent conversation with some sages in Bristol, however, reveal something more about the man. Turns out he's a bit of a 'superman' in disguise, having learnt Japanese during two years there, done the traditional management consultancy that everyone with a First in PPE from Oxford does, and then deciding to solve Africa's AIDS problem* and set up an educational publishing business along the way. A man this dynamic should surely have a more impressive presence?!

*He has set up a charity to help AIDS orphans in Africa.
