The Jeremy Hunt Fiasco

There are at two worrying aspects of the story about Jeremy Hunt and News Corporation's bid to take complete control of BSkyB: one is that Hunt seems to have an child-like naivety about what is acceptable behaviour for someone in his position; the other is that it has become clear that other misiters were aware that Hunt was a biased in favour of News Corp as Vince cable was against it.

It was reasonable to remove Cable because of his bias and it was totally unreasonable to replace him with the equally biased Hunt. This calls into question either the integrity or competence of senior ministers.
