Hunt to repeal anti-slavery and votes for women laws: “It’s part of our heritage”.

Jeremy Hunt hopes his proposed repeal of antislavery and votes for women laws will land him the Tory leadership and not lead to civil unrest.

Jeremy Hunt hopes his proposed repeal of antislavery and votes for women laws will land him the Tory leadership and not lead to civil unrest.

Bringing up the rear in the Tory leadership race, Jeremy Hunt is hoping an appeal to traditional Tory right-wing values and nostalgia for the ‘good old days’ will win him favour with the Tory voters.

He has pledged to restore lost cultural and heritage values by taking the country back to the days of the British Empire.

His first act will be to offer a free vote in Parliament on repealing the laws giving women the right to vote.

“The best days of the Empire were before women had the vote and we did jolly well back then,” he said. “I want to bring back the good old glory days of England and this will be a first step.”

The free vote will, of course, only be given to male MPs.

Hunt also proposes to repeal all anti-slavery laws. “The Empire was built on slavery. The progenitors of many great families today built their fortune through slavery and it never did them any harm.

“What we lack in this country is the derring-do attitude which made our forefathers go out and conquer the world. I want to restore that sense of adventure.

“We can’t be held back by outdated laws about personal chattels, individual freedom and the like, especially of foreigners. As Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs I’m ideally placed to know about these things.”

Hunt hopes his promise to return to the days of the Empire will appeal to older Tory voters and allow him to scrape a win.

Hunt also said the possibility of bringing back hanging was not out of the question.
