Jeremy Hunt (@Jeremy_Hunt) has denies being the source of a claim that the United Kingdom will seek a "Swiss-style deal" to improve the Brexit agreement but has insisted that this is not his aim. #UK #Brexit #JeremyHunt
When pressed by MPs, the chancellor stated, "I do not support, I have never contemplated" scrapping Boris Johnson (@BorisJohnson)'s deal, despite it being blamed for a significant drop in GDP and cross-Channel trade.
Mr Hunt, on the other hand, refused to deny that he or a Treasury (@hmtreasury) aide briefed journalists ahead of last weekend's story, which reignited Conservative divisions over Europe.

/2 #JeremyHunt, the latest of the four chancellors that Britain has burned through this year, takes a more orthodox Treasury view than Mr Kwarteng. His autumn economic statement will nonetheless be the defining financial and political moment of the Rishi Sunak government.
/3 Next Thursday will show whether it has learned the lessons not just of Mr Kwarteng’s dash for growth while Mr Hunt was on the backbenches, but also of the prolonged #austerity under George Osborne when Mr Hunt served as a senior member of cabinet.

‘Look honey, you’ve been through four Prime Ministers in six years. They can’t all be the problem’” @Trevornoah on @TheDailyShow

In a response to Richard Murphy's blog posted over the weekend, I think this is very insightful as to why the Tories are being so #cruel over #welfare #benefits and #CostOfLivingCrisis Support (a 🧵)... /1
/2 There is a new comment on The #Tories are now the most #rightwing governing party in the developed world:
"It could be worse than that. Maybe the rather tepid move to Labour in the polls is because of something darker.

Let me tell you my own #jeremyhunt story... We were at a tory fundraiser. I'd written a piece that day about childcare dilemmas. He told me, "move out here to the country. You can get a big house, move in a nanny, maybe her husband too for gardening, driving & stuff...
And you pay them virtually nothing, because you give them lodgings. It's the perfect solution!"
Then we were ushered into the dining hall where my table told me" isn't he wonderful? He'll be pm one day." And I thought, 'God help us!'
He was wrong & also stupid to misjudge me.
I don't normally relay private conversations. But this is too important. We are at a time in history where the big decisions need to be taken by people with the strongest moral compasses.
It's not right v left.
It's right v wrong.
And Hunt is a proper wrong 'un.

New Foreign Secretary @Jeremy_Hunt is in Paris to discuss Brexit & bilateral relations. Can he expect any favours? (mini thread)
1. The good news: France values UK relationship – ally in Middle East, Africa, UN and NATO & partner on intelligence, counter-terrorism. Discussions take place at bilateral level, so largely unaffected by Brexit.
2. The flip-side: France clear that Brexit negotiations are led by the EU. Its position hasn’t changed: UK cannot expect same benefits or preferential treatment. UK-EU trade will inevitably be weaker.
