The Health Secretary Matt Hancock has been caught having an affair with aide Gina Coladangelo after CCTV shows the pair embracing in a passionate kiss.
Coladangelo who is 43, and married and married father of three, Hancock 42, employed her in March last year as an unpaid advisor.
The Health Secretary’s job now hangs in the balance as today he cancelled a visit to a vaccination centre, “early this morning.”
An organiser at Newmarket Racecourse told Sky News today, that “he [Hancock] won’t be coming,” who added, it was cancelled “Early this morning.”
The passionate kiss was alleged to have taken place around 3pm on 6 May outside his ninth floor Whitehall office.
Some 11 days later the Covid restrictions were lifted, only then allowing people from different households to mix.
However, a personal friend of the love rat Hancock reportedly told the Sun that “no rules have been broken.”
The Sun newspaper was informed by a whistleblower who used to work at the Department of Health who said that both Hancock and Coldangelo had regular clinches together.
Both Labour and the Liberal Democrats have now called, again, for the “hopeless” Hancock to be sacked from his job as Health Secretary.
Labour Party chair Anneliese Dodds said, “If Matt Hancock has been secretly having a relationship with an adviser in his office – who he personally appointed to a taxpayer-funded role – it is a blatant abuse of power and a clear conflict of interest.
“The charge sheet against Matt Hancock includes wasting taxpayers’ money, leaving care homes exposed and now being accused of breaking his own Covid rules.
“His position is hopelessly untenable. Boris Johnson should sack him.”
Lib Dem leader Ed Davey said, “Matt Hancock is a terrible Health Secretary and should have been sacked a long time ago for his failures.
“This latest episode of hypocrisy will break the trust with the British public. He was telling families not to hug loved ones, while doing whatever he liked in the workplace.
“It’s clear that he does not share the public’s values. Rules for them and rules for us is no way to run a country.
“From the PPE scandal, the crisis in our care service and the unbelievably poor test and trace system, he has utterly failed. It is time for the Health Secretary to go.”
