Allegedly doing some horizontal running with one of his aides.

Couldn't care less if he is having an affair with a married woman while being married himself.

My issue with it is that he appointed her as a non executive director at the Department of Health. A role that was meant to scrutinise performance. Her role was not made public at the time either.
The way the Tories operate to avoid being held to account and siphon taxpayers money to their chums is truly sickening.

Is `horizontal running` the same as `levelling up`?

Timing is a bit funny this one….wouldn’t be surprised if this is some sort of ruse to cover up something rather more important and just pinning everything on him.

There's no doubt this has been timed for some reason. Whether they just want him gone or something else is going on someone has had that footage for a wee while anyway and has chosen to release it now.

He has apologised and Boris the Brave has said matter closed

He is being kept on to be the sacrificial lamb after and when the results of the public enquiry into the covid mess is released

Pretty safe while Boris is his gaffer.....he can hardly punt him for being incompetent or marital discretions.

Fair to say they were both scrutinising performance, just not of health matters!

Rotten to the core.

And a company owned by his bird's brother got millions in NHS contracts.
And yet folks putting their health in their hands.
Madness, utter madness.

It's strange that the industry I work in everything is tightly regulated so that you even have to be careful taking a client for a business lunch in case it is seen as bribery, but the government can give out millions and sometimes billions to their pals without a proper tendering process, give top jobs to their mistresses, award contracts willy nilly to her brothers firm, and break ministerial code and no one is really that bothered. A couple of days and this latest scandal will be all forgotten about.
In years gone by, this would have been a cause to resign, this lot would get away with murder.

It just shows how far the public have let things slide, no one cares anymore, as long as they are mortgaged up to the eyeballs for a box on an estate, have got an SUV and Audi in the drive and a shiny new phone they are not fussy what goes on

Most of us don`t have those things though. Having an audi in the drive or even having a driveway would be a major upgrade for me.

We all hate poverty, war, and injustice.
Unlike the rest of you squares.

Only because he couldn't get away with it GG.

At least there is a threshold of embarrassment. I thought they would have needed to get caught robbing banks before having to resign. I was going to add killing people but....well.....

Hancock has been a dead man on furlough since April 2020. He was widely known as part of a group of incompetents within the government which included Grayling and Williamson. These were politicians promoted on loyalty rather than merit. Hancock has been hapless since day one and only allowed to remain in post so long as he was a lightning conductor for Boris Johnson.

His engineered dismissal, which cold have come at any time in the last year and a half, is an indication of a change in government policy towards its response to Covid. What that change is I am not sure, but I imagine it may be to be guided by the science rather than to follow it.

I'd rather have an incompetent Hancock than Javid though.

Aye, the bumbling buffoon has surrounded himself with some loathsome cabinet colleagues whom I don't need to name. Did he ever get a new adviser to replace that weasel?

Strange how this whole affair has turned into a security risk with the cameras in the offices...

Rastapari,

For a politician science is like law: you get the opinion you pay for. If it`s not the opinion you want then you pay somebody else with initials after their name to give what you do want. A knighthood might follow. House of Lords in your dotage.

Johnson has kept Hancock at the helm precisely because he is known to be useless. If he had replaced Hancock earlier then Johnson would have had to change policy and adopt what might roughly be called the Swedish Model, whereby the population are not held under the same severity of Lockdown. But Johnson was frightened of newspaper headlines of patients dying in corridors, especially rich pensioners from the south of England, so he thought it best to deflect all of the Professor Gloom message on to Hancock.

Johnson is now banking on easing restrictions in the name of freedom (don`t laugh), which is of course a gamble, but so long as the dirt sticks to Javid in the event of a disaster then no great harm has been done to Johnson. Hancock followed the science, which he was told to do, and is now being labelled a prat. If Javid follows the latest advice, bought at great expense I am sure, and there is a disaster then it is Javid`s fault. He`ll be prat number 2. But if any rising death figures can be muted by the media then Johnson is the great libertarian of our age.
