Social distance



or breaking the COVID rules

which is more sinful?


by Scooj

On the news today that Matthew Hancock, Health Secretary, has been caught on camera snogging an advisor he appointed into a senior role with the NHS. This at a time when he is advising the general public to maintain social distancing. All of this and little mention of his infidelity (it is a ‘private’ matter).

There is so much wrong with this whole episode on every level. Sadly we seem to just expect or accept this kind of behaviour from those in power and disregard it. For a country that is peddling itself as ‘Global Britain’ this is just another deeply embarrassing and damaging affair. No dignity. Shameful.

  1. When we allow public officials to lower the standard for decency, all of humanity is degraded. Witness what transpired during the Trump years culminating in the sack of the Congressional Building. It’s not over reacting when it comes to fruition.
