Calls mount for embattled Health Secretary’s resignation after alleged affair with adviser Gina Coladangelo
Breaching social distancing rules, having an affair when he's supposedly working so so hard and the most important thing, cheating on his wife and not giving a hoot. Have some decency and resign!

Johnson's past isn't squeaky clean, so he won't criticise this behaviour. It's just more of Tory - 'the rules don't apply to us'.
The only thing he’s sorry for is getting caught. Get them out of government once and for all.
The question is will he get the benefit of the Cummings principle or ruthlessly hounded out of his job like everyone else was?
He’s straight up made a mockery of the pandemic. To think we sit and listen to what guys like him are telling us to do - you can ram your restrictions.
He's sorry – sorry he's been caught.
I’d love to know how he can award government contracts to his friends without any scrutiny from anyone, but he has an affair and now his position is in jeopardy.
And he is telling all us to stay two metres apart, one rule for them and another for us.
I’m sure he was just eating out to help out.
The fact they both chose to have an affair is their business. However, to hire and pay her with taxpayers funds to assist with the Covid programme is what’s galling. I mean the level of financial corruption is outstanding but it’s all being swept under the carpet as per usual. I do wonder what it will take for people to stop voting for these imbeciles.
Their private business. It's his political activity that affects us.
He’s still got a bit to go to catch up with Boris.
It’s a job for the boys and one rule for them and another for us.

Well, his affair certainly isn't secret anymore! Surely, they must know cameras are everywhere in Westminster. I'm surprised there aren't more graphic pictures of various explicit positions, if they're this careless! They're abusing their position in public office. That's a sackable offence. I feel sorry for his wife and young children.
The Tories, including cabinet ministers, say he hasn’t broken any rules. I think the respective spouses would argue differently.
If he can betray his wife and kids with that level of deceit, he can easily do that to the people he is “trying “ to protect. He’s got to go.
OK, Tory cabinet. Green light. You can officially do what you want. You're untouchable! First to get to homicide wins a third house in Cornwall.
To the idiots saying who cares – did she have influence on the contracts that have been awarded? And it goes to his character – did she get her role because of the affair? Oeople should be bothered, that's why the UK is in such a mess, because people don't seem to care how corrupt or useless the government is. Perhaps he should have been concentrating on Covid – what a shower.
Hancock seems to get embroiled in scandal after scandal. He’s quite like Boris it seems. Don’t cheat – it’s not that hard.
A guest on Good Morning Britain said that Matt has done a fantastic job during the pandemic, like we should be grateful for over 150.000 deaths to Covid 19.
Least of his sins, 127k people lost their lives due to incompetent Tory governance.

His integrity is absolutely in question, as is hers. But he is a UK government minister.
He really is an absolute liability.
Is this what being active in politics means?
I'm confused as to how a non-director executive only earns £15K a year. Wonder how much her staff were paid!
Can't even follow his own rules.
