He's no celebrity - stop Matt Hancock appearing on I'm a Celebrity
Reverse your decision to bring Matt Hancock onto I'm a celebrity.
His appearance will cause real pain and anguish to those of us who lost loved ones to Covid-19.
Why is this important?
Matt Hancock isn’t a ‘celebrity’, he’s the health secretary who oversaw the UK having one of the highest death tolls in the world from Covid-19 whilst breaking his own lockdown rules.
The fact that he is trying to cash in on his terrible legacy, rather than showing some humility or seeking to reflect on the appalling consequences of his time in Government says it all about the sort of his person he is.
Families were ripped apart by Matt Hancock’s actions, and turning on the TV to see him being paraded around as a joke is sickening.
If he had any respect for families who lost loved ones to Covid-19, he would be sharing his private emails with the Covid Inquiry, not eating bugs on TV.
Then again, perhaps if those emails came to light no TV station would touch him with a barge pole. ITV should do the decent thing and remove him from the programme.Over 200,000 people lost their lives to Covid-19 across the UK.
Matt Hancock was at the very centre of decisions such as locking down late, allowing large scale sporting events to go ahead as the virus ran rampant and failed to get our healthcare workers the PPE they needed.
On top of that he was fired after breaking the rules he helped set.
His profiteering and shameless search for publicity in the run up to his book launch is another insult to already grieving families.
