The Sun (apologies, but they got the scoop) has published a picture od Matt Hancock in a steamy embrace with a woman he sneaked into a job at DHSC last November, the story is that they have been carrying on an affair in the office since then. The hypocrisy of him calling for Neil Ferguson spelling amended by GNHQ at OP's request to be sacked for his lockdown breaking affair cannot be overestimated.

Please, please not Michael Gove?

As maybe=said. Murdoch did for him. Murdochs very friendly with Gove. Doesn’t take much to bet that Gove will be next Health Secretary.

Forget that last post, just Dr Phil Hammond messing about!

Indeed....just not Gove please, please, please.

Actually it is Nadim Zahawi instead.

Dido Harding appointed Health Secretary and Head of NHS England.

I still think she’s a cover up for someone else being appointed.

So just a scary windup then? Scared me.

Whitewavemark2 Sat 26-Jun-21 19:04:30

Hancock was Jabberwocked ?

Elizabeth1 Sat 26-Jun-21 19:17:30

That’s him gone now, fully resigned.and another one bites the dust.

If Johnson had any sense he’d crawl and try to bring back Jermey Hunt, at least he had some idea of what he was doing so would be somewhat of an improvement. I doubt he would agree to return though.

If this disgraced Tory told his wife he was leaving her when his affair became public, I don't know whether to feel sorry for her or congratulate her on getting rid.

i accidentally watched the video and it was very disappointing and he looked really bald

Whitewavemark2 Sat 26-Jun-21 19:38:11

Javid apparently

JaneJudge Sat 26-Jun-21 19:44:33

in the video? grin

B9exchange Sat 26-Jun-21 19:48:49

Many apologies for excited posting, I was just so elated at getting rid of someone who should never have been appointed in the first place. I will now wait for the Twitter storm to subside and see who emerges. There could be frying pan and fire possibilities, but I will wait for an official announcement. (And mute Dr Phil Hammond! grin

Sajid Jarvis, a good appointment in my opinion. Much better, more competent and experienced man than Hancock.

LauraNorder Sat 26-Jun-21 19:56:34

Sajid Javid. Bloody predictive text

B9exchange Sat 26-Jun-21 20:10:20

Could have been a lot worse! grin

Oh dear B9exchange is that how we have to judge our government these days?

Luckygirl Sun 27-Jun-21 20:11:16

Sadly, I think so.
