Political Editor for the Daily Mirror, Pippa Crerar, posted quotes from Anneliese Dodds. The Chair of the Labour party had the following to say:

"If Matt Hancock has been secretly having a relationship with an adviser in his office... it is a blatant abuse of power and a clear conflict of interest.

"The charge sheet against Matt Hancock includes wasting taxpayers’ money, leaving care homes exposed and now being accused of breaking his own COVID rules.

"His position is hopelessly untenable. Boris Johnson should sack him."

Of course, Hancock has since apologised for breaking the rules he himself implemented but is yet to make a statement about the affair.

"Matt Hancock is a terrible Health Secretary and should have been sacked a long time ago for his failures.

"This latest episode of hypocrisy will break the trust with the British public. He was telling families not to hug loved ones, while doing whatever he liked in the workplace."

"Matt Hancock is a terrible Health Secretary and should have been sacked a long time ago for his failures.

"This latest episode of hypocrisy will break the trust with the British public. He was telling families not to hug loved ones, while doing whatever he liked in the workplace."

She continued: "From the PPE scandal, the crisis in our care service and the unbelievably poor test and trace system, he has utterly failed. It is time for the Health Secretary to go."
