Jeremy Hunt paid tribute to Stephen Hawking and people had the perfect comeback

Here’s health secretary Jeremy Hunt paying tribute to Stephen Hawking who has died aged 76.

Except Hawking was a passionate defender of the NHS, and almost as passionate a critic of Hunt who accused him of ‘pernicious falsehoods’.

Now Hawking is no longer able to fend for himself, @JimMFelton on Twitter did it for him.

And he wasn’t the only person making the point.

Plenty of other people weighed in today, to remember Hawking’s efforts on behalf of the NHS – and to carry on the fight.
