22 Matt Hancock bombshells from shameless Covid diaries as tell-all book lands

Matt Hancock has dropped a number of bombshells in his shameless Covid diaries. The ' I'm a Celebrity ' star discusses a number of topics in his juicy novel including his social distance-busting affair, reports the Mirror.

After missing Parliament for nearly five weeks, the disgraced former Health Secretary is back to promote Pandemic Diaries, giving his account of what happened at the top of government during the pandemic. We have combed through the all 592 pages of Mr Hancock’s diaries and here are the best bits.

During May 2020 the government added a loss of taste/smell to an official list of Covid isolation symptoms. However, Hancock claims he knew of the symptom months before then.

On March 18, 2020, he writes: “Nadine [Dorries], as ever in the vanguard of the epidemic, says she’s lost her sense of smell and taste and everyone she’s infected has got the same thing.

“Strange: that’s not one of the official symptoms. I’ll ask the Prof to see if we need to add it to the list.”

If Sunak can become British PM, dual citizens should be allowed to enter P’ment – Sagara K
COLOMBO (News 1st) – The General Secretary of the Sri Lanka Podujana Peramuna, Attorney-at-Law Sagara Kariyawasam emphasized that dual citizens should be allowed to enter the Parliament. Speaking at a press conference held at the party headquarters, Kariyawasam stressed this point taking into example the newly appointed British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak.Pointing out that the concept of a global village is now prevalent in the world, the SLPP General Secretary said that instead, some parties are attempting to drag the country back into tribalism.He said that England, as a country where Protestant Christianity is used as the official religion, a Hindu of Indian origin was appointed as the Prime Minister, which speaks for the UK's acceptance towards those of a different origin, in contrast to that of Sri Lanka. "The question of whether we, as a country are moving towards tribalism, I think was best answered for those who brought amendments such as the 22nd Amendemnt, by England last week," he said.However, the question remains, wheter the example taken by Kariyawasam is comparable to the situation in Sri Lanka? The current British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was born on the 12th of May 1980 at the Southampton Hospital in Britain . Which means he was a British citizen by Birth.
