London (AP) — The British Minister of Health resigned after hitting photos and videos of tabloids kissing aides in his office — the same corona he imposed on the country. The virus broke the social distance expansion rules.

Matt Hancock was replaced quickly, but the scandal was another blow to Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his conservative government. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been repeatedly criticized for his incompetence and hypocrisy in dealing with pandemics over the past year.

“People have made enormous sacrifices to overcome the pandemic, and what afflicts them is the whims of hypocrisy that people make rules and don’t stick to themselves,” conservative Congressman Andrew Bridgen said. I told the BBC on Sunday.

The day after Hancock apologized for violating social distance rules after Sun’s tabloid released an image showing him and senior aide Gina Coradangero hugging and kissing in his office. Announced his resignation on Saturday. After the image was taken on May 6, Sun said the blockade rules were relaxed, allowing hugs and physical contact with people who weren’t at home.

Married Hancock was not the first senior British politician to be caught in the red for violating the government’s own COVID-19 rules.

Dominic Cummings, a former top aide to Johnson, said the government’s “stay-at-home order” when he broke the travel ban and headed for his parents’ home across Britain during the first blockade of Britain in 2020. It was accused of weakening the message. Violations were widely seen to cause anger and undermine public confidence in the Johnson administration.

And it was revealed that Neil Ferguson, the government’s chief scientific adviser who advocated strict blockade rules, did not practice what he preached and allowed his girlfriend to visit him at home. Later, he resigned in May 2020. At that time, Hancock said that the rules of social distance in place were “for everyone” and “fatally serious.”

On Sunday, many questioned why Johnson stood openly beside Hancock after evidence of recent rule violations appeared. Johnson was confident in the Minister of Health and said his office believed the problem had been resolved after Hancock’s apology, despite being widely asked to dismiss Hancock.

“Boris Johnson should have had the guts, spine, consciousness, and judgment to dismiss him on Friday,” said Jonathan Ashworth, a health spokesman for the opposition Labor Party.

Hancock was accused of his leadership in the government’s response to the pandemic long before the intimate photo was released.

He was accused of favorably hiring his friend, businessman Dido Harding, to perform a highly criticized national testing and tracking system. Questions were also raised after the government granted a favorable coronavirus testing contract to a company run by a pub landlord near Hancock’s former member’s home. Hancock denied any involvement in the contract.

There is also the question of how Hancock’s best friend in college, Coradangero, got a job as a part-time director of the Ministry of Health.

The scandal was behind widespread criticism from opponents of the Conservative “Threes.” Last month, former Prime Minister David Cameron was called in front of lawmakers to answer questions about lobbying for government funding for a financial services company that is currently bankrupt.

Labor lawmaker Lucy Powell said the fact that Hancock wasn’t fired wasn’t very much reflected in Johnson’s decision.

“I feel that the Prime Minister has a very dangerous blind spot regarding issues of integrity and behavior in public life,” she told Sky News. “This is a huge problem, and even more so if you are in the midst of a pandemic and want the people to act with integrity and action in the same way as they do in their lives.”
