UK Health Minister Matt Hancock resigned this Saturday after admitting he violated the rules of social exclusion during a prostitution relationship with a consultant.
He himself made the announcement in a video shared on Twitter. Rejecting the idea of resigning earlier this week, the politician said, “We are honest with the people who have sacrificed so much in these epidemics, when we bring them down.”
The Sun Daily reported on Friday Hancock, who is married with three children, has an affair with an aide and released photos of the two kisses at the minister’s office in May, at a time when warmth was banned between people from different homes.
The recruitment of Gina Coldangelo, of the Ministry of Health, who met Matt Hancock at the college and is currently communicating for a chain of stores founded by her husband, also raises questions.
He was appointed spokesman for the main opposition Labor Party, and asked whether the minister had violated the rules and whether there was a “conflict of interest” in the appointment of the adviser, a partner and director of the campaign company Luther Pentagon.
“Ministers, like everyone else, have a right to privacy. However, it should be taken into account when taxpayers’ money is at risk or when jobs are offered to close friends who have a personal relationship with a minister,” he said.
