Mr Hancock and his rules

People died alone, not even able to hold the hands of loved ones, because they followed rules Matt Hancock set.

People gave birth without their partners being there, because they followed rules Matt Hancock set.

People never got to say a proper goodbye to people they’d loved for decades, because they followed rules Matt Hancock set.

People have spend over a year alone, isolated and lonely, often without any comfort from human touch, because they followed rules Matt Hancock set.

And Matt Hancock looked at the sacrifices they made, the moments and relationships lost forever, the tragedies that played out all over the country, all done in the name of protecting one another, and thought “I’m too important to follow my own rules.”

And he had an affair.

So, no, Mr Hancock, this is not a private matter. This is very much a public matter. This is an insult to every member of the British public that sacrificed to keep your rules.

And it’s an insult you have compounded by failing to resign.
