    Bit of a pattern emerging- first Ferguson now Hancock- seems to be how they get rid of people over there these days- he’s toast obviously.

    1. Bitnboxy

      Come off it SOQ. Maybe Hancock was testing his, ahem, eyesight or even sense of taste. It worked for Dom Cummings…for a while at least.

  2. Bitnboxy

    I would imagine this should earn him a promotion from Johnson…or at least a peerage.

    I wonder what the Express take will be? “Our Brexit boys make ladies go weak at the knees!”.

      1. Bitnboxy

        I was toying with “Hancock-up!” but I thought a tad too risqué even for the Express.

        Still, if they’re paying well, I’m playing. Lol.

    1. Bitnboxy

      What did I tell yiz. Bojo’s only gone and given Hancock a slap in the back. Apology accepted and carry on my dear old chap!

      1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

        What do they think they are, French ?! This just isn’t British ….

        1. Bitnboxy

          To be fair, given Bojo’s record, he is in really no position to take the moral high ground. I wonder what Carrie must be thinking.

          In France though, it is expected and done with much more discretion and panache (and a two-way street). With the Tories, it’s all a bit “public school boys who can’t believe their luck”.

    If he’d quit there’d be speculation over the reasons. It might lead to people doubting the various covid regulations and the competence of the Johnson government in general. If he goes over this then I reckon this was potentially all arranged. Either way he’s compromised now. Strange that he might have to quit or be fired over this considering the disaster he’s had a hand in. Don’t go too far Matt, you’ll have to come back for the inquiries.

    1. SOQ

      Yes- shagging the secretary could quite possibly be an excuse to exit left before the proverbial hits the fan.

      1. Can a Da?

        What proverbial hits the fan? Are you referring to the fact they eased their restrictions too quickly and screwed around the recommend AZ protocol leaving their citizens vulnerable to the Delta variant?
        Of course you are.

        1. SOQ

          No I am referring to the growing anti lockdown / safe vaccine movement- estimated one million on the streets of London for the last one and (I think) the next is tomorrow. Doris has extended the restrictions since last of course- so this will be bigger.

          Also, was Hancock not involved in some shady poo recently?

          1. Can a Da?

            Still not sure what proverbial you are referring to? Hancock was outed by his erstwhile former colleagues as being useless, yes, and there was something also about shady contracts, but that was attaching to Cummins specifically as I recall.

          2. SOQ

            Well if you know the geography of London CC- which I do- the aerial shots were huge and unlikely Dublin, those streets are much wider. The BBC said a couple of thousand which probably confirms your bias better? The police remained silent of course.

            It was was directly after said march that Boris made the statement that once lockdown was lifted, he didn’t care if bodies were piling in the streets but he wasn’t going back in so- join the dots, or not.

            Next one is going to bigger, and fair play to them.

          3. SOQ

            Did you even bother your backside watching the streams? I expect not- sure that would be too much outside your comfort zone.

  4. Micko

    Pffft…

    Absolutely fine.

    In that picture you can clearly see that they are both wearing double masks and in fact if you look really closely you can see a really thin sheet of perspex between them.

    Completely fine. Nothing to see here.

  5. Fearganainm

    CCTV footage from outside his own office at 3pm on May 6th. There’s probably a long list of potential leakers of that stolen moment.

    I’m sure Cummings is heartbroken that his efforts weren’t as problematic.

  6. missred

    He has all the charm of a puddle, I’d rather shift that Cummings fella. Jesus I feel ill looking at that

      1. missred

        I’m vastly superior at grabbing arses than her I must say, also grabbed superior arses….

    1. Can a Da?

      Would you really though? I suppose his biting sarcasm would make you laugh anyway. But jesus, there must be a few more potentials out there than these two…

  7. Mr. T

    Cummings was trying his best to get Johnson to sack “Hopeless Hancock”

    Hopefully now they finally shift him

  8. Junkface

    The tories always did love a scandal. The juicer the better! Haha! Hancock is such a one man clusterf***

  9. Fearganainm

    “…Mrs Hancock is friends on Facebook with Mrs Coladangelo, with the latter liking pictures of the Hancock children shared by the osteopath…”

    The Daily Mail escalates the level of betrayal and steers a little of the public’s contempt towards the bit on the side.

  10. Fergalito

    It’s been a while since the Tories were embroiled in a good old sex scandal.

    This is a poor facsimile of what used to go on in the 1980’s – one MP or Peer was caught in a brothels dressed as a baby with a big nappy on him while being nursed was a particularly memorable one.

    David Mellor was quite the naughty boy too

    Hancock is in the ha’penny place.

        1. missred

          I have the backs of hairbrushes instead of a whip and several ballet pumps, but I don’t think they’ll fit your feet. Max Mosley will have nothing on you when we’re done

      1. Fergalito

        Wow … they don’t make deviant sex fiend Tories like they used to. Or maybe they’re just better at not getting caught? Unfortunately they’re mostly still the same C U Next Tuesdays in all of the other ways…

        Whipped while tied to the bonnet of a Morris Minor – ROFL.

        Are you sure it wasn’t a Volkswagen Jeté?

    1. SOQ

      Oh it wasn’t just the Tories mind- Jeremy Thorpe comes to mind. In May 1979 he was tried at the Old Bailey on charges of conspiracy and incitement to murder, arising from an earlier relationship with Norman Scott, a former model.

      Homosexuality in those days AND conspiracy to murder- now that is how to get the tongues wagging eh?

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Thorpe

      How come we never have such scandals over here eh? Is it that they are all saints or just that the media won’t touch stories?

      Ok we had rutting stags in the park I suppose but that seems tame by comparison.

      1. Fergalito

        I’m sure there are “skeletons” in many a closet.

        Probably a no-go area for the media once upon a time in holy Ireland.

        Plenty of overt horrors anyway, I’m not far away from Fairview and always think when i’m passing of Declan Flynn and the heinous remarks made about his murder by the piece of crap Judge who was trying the case. Utterly reprehensible how you could get away with something like that.

        1. Bitnboxy

          +1 I still cannot believe that happened. That poor man. And a decent quiet sort too. He was a carer for his mother so his killing and the “trial” which basically saw the judge give a thumbs up to his brutal and senseless murder, hastened his mother’s own death and remains one of the lowest points in post-independence Irish legal history. The wanton cruelty defies belief.

  11. Fearganainm

    Hancock’s not been idle this morning. Apart from cancelling official appointments he’s also deleted an Instagram post from last night where he said he ‘works with some brilliant women’.

    That coded billet-doux evidently didn’t look such a good idea in the cold light of dawn.

  12. eamonn

    Health Head Honcho’s Hanki Panki lands him in Hot Water – one more naughty little tory.

    nothing bigger in the world to look at. . .
    Not a tory story, but does anyone remember when paddy ashdown was dubbed paddy pantsdown by the papperatzi?

  13. Ah sure jaysus you know yourself

    What a bunch to judgemental willies. Like the clientele in here are generally the first to defend the rights and the honour of anyone from somebody who wants to identify as a saucepan to the need for weed brigades. Suddenly The Sun ( The Sun ffs) newspaper says a straight white guy with power snogs a woman (who’s very very wealthy by the way) and there’s carnage! What a bunch of Molly coddled hypocrites. You’re all Joe Duffy callers in the making.

    1. Micko

      I’d be more judgemental of the fact that while in offices and business up and down the UK and Ireland are standing two metres apart and talking to each other through Perspex and facemasks, this is what is happening in the halls of power.

      They’re laughing at us all the way to the bank.

      Even with all the examples we’ve been given of people in power not following the “rules” and more importantly- not being afraid (Golfgate RTEgate, Cummings and now Hancock), people still come on here and call people selfish and stupid for not obeying the rules.

      It’s mind boggling to be honest.

    2. Bitnboxy

      Go on out of that – as Micko says, it’s the hypocrisy. Added to this Hancock’s wife and 3 children (1 adopted) might have a different take to yours.

      Also, you’re the first to clutch your pearls at the mere mention of a trans person or legalizing cannabis (to perhaps reduce gang crime), so that is a tad hypocritical.

      Hancock has all the charisma of a wet towel so it’s amusing to boot.

  14. Redundant Proofreaders Society

    He always came across as a lover, not a soldier.
    Bye bye Matt n’ Gina.

    1. GiggidyGoo

      “Boris, I was just going into my office when I tripped and stumbled forward. Luckily for me, Gina happened to be passing and stopped me falling and cushioned me with her (slurp!) voluptuous lips. I grabbed hold of her ass to make sure I wouldn’t fall any further. Gina was strong enough to hold me for 30 seconds, at which stage I could remove my tongue from her tonsils”

  15. goldenbrown

    my only thought on this salacious scoop is that whomever released that cctv footage to ze Daily Mail is going to end up in court and possibly faces prison

  16. K. Cavan

    I worked in the media, the stuff my journalist mates know would surprise many but no Irish Newspaper would ever print it. Always too much deference, which has only become worse, lately. Every now and then, in the presence of civilians, I’d let something slip, forgetting that what was common knowledge among the media set was unknown among the general population.
    Not today, though.
