As Jeremy Hunt leaves the DCMS today, he will do so with the distinction of being the least mourned secretary of state in the culture department's history – as least as far as the arts world goes. As one senior British cultural figure put it, a line echoed repeatedly on Twitter this afternoon: "Jim Naughtie spoke the thoughts of the entire culture sector when he Freudian-slipped him."

 

Why has Hunt been so loathed?

 

To answer that, one needs to go back several years, to 2008.

 

When he was appointed shadow culture secretary, he set about charming the arts world – charm is a weapon that Hunt wields effortlessly – and did it very well. As the Brown government began to look increasingly moribund, its ministers thinner on ideas as they grappled with their own internal woes, up popped Hunt: keen as mustard, pitching up to lots of events, gamely giving speeches, attending conerences, showing willing.
