Jeremy Hunt Ridiculed On Twitter Ahead Of Rupert Murdoch's Leveson Inquiry Testimony

Posted: Updated:

As Jeremy Hunt's tenure as Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport is increasingly in doubt Twitter has been keeping up the pressure through a number of comedy hashtags including #jeremyhuntsongs.

Users of the social network have been strenuously exercising the pun-conjuring parts of their brains to come up with song names to describe Hunt's situation.

They range from tweets mocking Hunt's apparent impending doom, such as "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" or "Reach For The Sky" to those mocking his close relationship with the Murdoch empire.

Hunt has come under pressure following damning evidence disclosed to the Leveson Inquiry by James Murdoch, former chairman of News International. Rupert Murdoch, owner of the network of companies under News Corporation, will appear today.
