Just how much does Lord Hunt dislike his relatives?

This being 'Lord' Hunt of Kings Heath, or Philip (to his nearest and dearest, I presume) Hunt, who has been answering questions in the Lords about the death of Dr David Kelly.

Lord Berkely (the 18th thereof, if rather shamefully a Socialist) had been reading Norman Baker's book on Kelly, and asked "As my noble friend will know, the Hutton inquiry was not statutory, and no evidence was taken under oath, so is it not now necessary for the Government to set up a proper statutory inquiry to investigate fully the circumstances of the death of this senior government employee?"

To which Hunt replied, inter alia, "My Lords, I have read extracts from the report, which I would describe as a good Christmas read".

Righty-ho......

Having been at school with (one of?) Hunt's sons the answer to your headline is about as much as the rest of us. I'd certainly read that report if I was stuck with them....

This being the former Health Minister I take it, who was causally referred to as 'Typo' in my bit of the NHS
