Hard times for the Culture Secretary as Joey Barton says 'I'd hate to be Jeremy Hunt' on Twitter
Thursday 31 May 2012
Banned footballer Joey Barton said today he would "hate to be Jeremy Hunt".
Barton, given a 12-match ban by the Football Association (FA) earlier this month, posted messages on Twitter outlining his thoughts about Mr Hunt's performance at the Leveson Inquiry.
The QPR midfielder tweeted: "Oh, how I would hate to be Jeremy Hunt right now."
He also posted a photograph of a man in a hole digging.
Barton was banned after being sent off during QPR's defeat at Manchester City on the final day of the last Barclays Premier League season.
He elbowed one Manchester City player, kicked out at a second and attempted to headbutt a third.
In 2008, Barton was given a six-month jail term after admitting assault and affray during an incident in Liverpool
