Hancock’s promise on nurses and accusations of anti-Semitism are greeted with derision at hustings

Matt Hancock: He may not feel quite so smug now.

The Tories’ current excuse for a health secretary took a few nasty hits – if only to his ego and his party’s credibility – when he tried to repeat widely-debunked claims at a hustings in his constituency.

See for yourself:

Look at Mr Hancock’s face in the video clip. He knew he had lost the audience and wasn’t going to get any of them back.

Now imagine the same scene being played out across the UK as Tories trot out these nonsense claims. It seems they have all been given manuals telling them what their main messages should be (for example, 50,000 new nurses) and how to smear their rivals (Labour anti-Semitism), so it is a reasonable assumption to make.

Let us hope all those other Tory candidates received the same reception.

    A pleasure to see this ghastly bar-steward being mocked. he’s one of the most vile of this bunch of proto- fascist Tories.

    Thanks for this post-perked me up a bit to see this vacuous moron getting what he deserves! Audience members deserve immediate OBE’s for services to integrity!
