Hancock steps down for ‘breaching the guidance
Matt Hancock, surely the worst Health Secretary in history,has resigned from his position this afternoon. In a letter to Boris Johnson he attributed his decision to ‘breaching the guidance’ on social distancing:
Labour leader Keir Starmer had not commented on the resignation at the time of writing. In a tweet that quickly went viral, left-wing backbencher Jon Trickett – many members’ pick to replace Starmer – said the resignation was a sign of Boris Johnson’s weakness:
Hancock’s far greater guilt is shared with his party boss – 150,000 needless deaths, the betrayal of front-line workers and the vulnerable and a string of dodgy contract awards. For the sake of future generations and justice, they both belong in the dock.
