See? Mr Hunt and Mr Johnson earlier

In an inexplicable 180-degree about-turn of gargantuan proportions, it's beginning to look like Jeremy Hunt has beaten Boris Johnson to the Tory leadership crown, because the BBC keeps posting pictures of the pair with Hunt always on the left-hand side.

Normally, Mr Johnson has been shown on the traditionally more prominent left-hand side, but a late rally might just have pushed Mr Hunt into the lead - and the left.

Since the early stages of the leadership contest, Mr Johnson has always been shown at the farthest left of any photos, symbolically indicating his importance over the other muppets involved.

Now, however, with just the last two runners remaining, it's Mr Hunt who seemingly has his nose in front by virtue of taking the left side from Mr Johnson, who, in truth, is more suited to the right - the Far Right.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
