Whoops #2

It seems our good friend Mr Jeremy Hunt, MP for South West Surrey, seems to be making a habit of slipping up in the Commons:

MP says sorry to school (Surrey Ad)
MP Jeremy Hunt has apologised for singling out a Godalming school in a Commons debate on health inequalities. Parents of pupils at St Mark’s Church of England Primary School were angered by comments made by Mr Hunt in his speech, branding them an insult to the school and the community.

During the debate, the South West Surrey MP used the school as an example of how the current NHS funding formula punishes poor families in rich areas.

He told MPs that the school – which was rated as the most improved primary school in Surrey and the fourth most improved in the country – was “somewhere where social break-down, a lack of education and a lack of money lead to less healthy diets and worse health outcomes”.

We eagerly await strike #3.
