Olympic trial ahead for Hunt
Will Jeremy Hunt, Britain's Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, resign from David Cameron's government before the week is out, or indeed before the day is out? Or can he hang in there through the summer, until the end of the London Olympics?
Mr Hunt is deeply embroiled in the controversy over the relationship between Mr Cameron's government and News International. On Thursday he will give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry. His future could depend on his performance there. Conceivably, the prime minister's future could be at risk also.
But in the meantime, Mr Hunt's natural preoccupation with his own survival seems to have left his department effectively leaderless.
