The Hancock Affair…
25 June 2021 - 10:55 am
So today The Sun is running a big story about Matt Hancock and Gina Coladangelo. The main thrust of the story by an outlet like The Sun is the “sleaze” aspect of course. This is the attention grabbing bit that most will focus on. Matt Hancock is alleged to be in a romantic relationship with Gina Coladangelo. They are both married, but not to each other. There are some photos of them together in what is unlikely to be explained away as anything work related, unless her job is a prostitute.
The article and live feed does contain other, arguably more important aspects of this story but I suspect this will be mainly driven by the “affair” part and less about those more important points.
There has been an attempt by the Travel Secretary Grant Shapps to describe this as a “red herring” and that “no rules have been broken”. It should be obvious by now that Government “rules” are worthless in every conceivable way. Clearly the COVID “rules” are morally wrong. They are scientifically and evidentially wrong. Plus there is enough evidence that Government ministers break their own “rules” as and when it suits, no consequences are ever suffered as a result and the Government simply circles the wagons and tells everyone to move along as there’s nothing to see.
The “rules” in this case are not the real issue, nor is whether they were broken or not. A lot is being made in this article about “while COVID gripped Britain”, and “while the mutant strain spread”. The trick being played here is that getting people to argue that perhaps Matt and Gina shouldn’t have been ‘relationshipping’ because either they are from different households and could be spreading the COVIDs, or they should have been getting on with saving Britain from the COVIDs is to implicitly accept the COVIDs exists, or can spread between perfectly healthy people or that Britain needs saving from the COVIDs.
This is the same as when it was revealed that Professor Neil Ferguson had met up with his new flame Antonia Staats at his London home during lockdown. Much was made about how he should “have been observing the lockdown like everyone else”, that his affair was possibly revealed because a jealous rival or an “economic hawk keen to end lockdown despite Britain’s atrocious death figures” had a motivation to see Professor Lockdown “sunk”. The underlying, or actually front-and-centre message is that this affair was bad because they’d broken lockdown rules. This again is getting people to implicitly accept and even argue for lockdowns, enforcement of lockdowns and punishments for breaking lockdown rules. The article also states how Ferguson has been “sunk”, his “reputation in tatters”, he’d been thrown “under the bus” and that:
Professor Ferguson quit from the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) and the New and Emerging Respiratory Virus Threats Advisory Group (NERVTAG) on the day the UK became the de facto epicentre of the pandemic.https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8293227/Questions-raised-revealed-Neil-Fergusons-affair-married-woman.html
None of that is true though. He has remained part of those groups ever since, not being taken off the list at any point. The Daily Mail article cited above regarding Ferguson’s “affair” was published on the 6th May 2020. Here on the 27th May 2021 the Daily Mail reports that “Professor Neil Ferguson warned more time was needed to determine whether June 21 opening could happen”, is quoted repeatedly in the article and referred to as a “fellow advisor” to SAGE member Professor John Edmunds. Ferguson was never “sunk”, never quit his roles and is still a highly influential SAGE member and Government advisor.
The Sun article about Matt and Gina does mention the corruption and “chumocracy” angles but because of the sensationalist way the media, particularly The Sun, writes it’s articles the sex aspect will be the headline and the part most focused on. I am not commenting on or condoning/judging affairs, extra-marital activity or whatever. That’s not really the main issue here.
The important point, the main point is that these people, Ferguson and Hancock are the public (occasionally pseudo-tearful) face of the “pandemic”, gravely warning of hundreds of thousands of deaths if we don’t obey the rules, but they clearly don’t believe their own lies and neither should we.
There is massive corruption here, and The Sun does report that Hancock had “secretly appointed Coladangelo to the Department of Health and Social Care as an unpaid adviser on a six-month contract in March last year”, that he then appointed her as a non-executive director at his department, the Department for Health and Social Care in a role that is meant to scrutinise the actions of the department. A good way to ensure you always get a good report is to be on good terms with the report-writers, and it would appear that Hancock ensured that by putting his girlfriend in the job.
Gina Coladangelo is not some office junior or naïve young girl that Hancock is exploiting. She is a millionaire, and a director of the lobbying firm Luther Pendragon that has clients who have secured lucrative contracts during the pandemic, including Accenture, which as can be seen on the Government website receives millions of pounds of taxpayer’s money for Government backed AI, digital transformation and (naturally) “climate change” projects. She is also communications and marketing director for Oliver Bonas, a fashion and homeware outlet with 80 stores across the UK that was founded by Oliver Tress, her husband. Oliver Bonas are featured on the Government’s Business Support Blog as role models for how to reopen shops “safely”.
This is all obviously corruption, favours for friends at the expense of the public and is hardly new. It is bad and we shouldn’t allow this cronyism to be normalised, but what we must also not do is allow ourselves to get embroiled in the wrong argument. We must never accept lockdowns, social distancing, masks or any other infringements of our personal liberty and bodily autonomy, explicitly or implicitly, by suggesting people like Hancock or Ferguson should be fired for breaking the COVID “rules”. They should be fired for lies and their use of data, models and statistics they know to be false to drive this entire “pandemic” hoax. They should (along with all the others who are complicit) be held accountable for their crimes against humanity. Will that ever happen? Who knows? If we argue about the wrong thing they might get side-lined for a bit, or even resign from their public position but they will never stand any kind of trial for their real crimes. It is important to not get distracted by the circus show as that’s what it’s there for.
