Health Secretary implodes under challenge on Radio 4 and blurts out: “scientists can say what they like” but Tories will do what they think is best
Easily-flustered Health Secretary Matt Hancock appeared on the BBC’s Radio 4 last Thursday – and went to pieces under even the mildest of challenges from Tory-supporting presenter Nick Robinson.
As Robinson tried to interrupt him to ask a question, Hancock – who has been increasingly brittle in interviews and was taken apart by Piers Morgan last week – whined and seemed almost about to swear at his interviewer and then blurted out a major admission.
The Tories have consistently tried to hide behind ‘the science’ as cover for their failures and delays – but when scientists say something the Tories don’t like, Hancock admitted “scientists can say what they like”, before telling Robinson that the Conservatives will do what they think is best, regardless what scientists say:
For such a massive admission – one that strips away the entire camouflage used by the Tories for their recklessness, slackness and ideologically-driven madness – it has received no mention from the so-called ‘mainstream’ media.
