This puts the seal on Hancock’s coronavirus testing lie

Matt Hancock: doesn’t he look smug? Most liars do, when they think they’ll get away with it.

Has Matt Hancock not resigned yet? No?

Shame. He should have gone, just for wasting up to 40,000 coronavirus testing kits by posting them out – sometimes multiple kits to the same homes – with no return address.

Recipients were told to bin them.

This is at a time when people are dying of this disease.

So to the commenter on This Site who wrote: “I have heard, but cannot corroborate, that some tests have arrived with no return envelope nor address. When people have contacted the help centre they have been advised to toss them in the bin and another would be sent out. If they are counting tests sent out then that would count as two tests”…

I can respond with this:

I hope that’s enough corroboration for everybody.

Worse still, if you wanted even more proof that the Tories rigged the system so they could parade a lie before us… it seems the number of tests carried out on May 1 – even under the new system – almost halved:

122,000 claimed one day; 63,000 the next.

Thousands of test kits posted out with no return address, with several sent to the same homes.

And Matt Hancock is still Health and Social Care Secretary.

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Today, Johnson joked that the cabinet had a ‘Death of Stalin’ moment when they drafted an obit for him whilst he was in ICU… Well, given the amount of misinformation, lies, corruption and misplaced swaggering bravado, I’d say they were definitely taking a leaf out of Stalin’s book

    Heard from a good source in Wales test swabs are being done wrongly in one test centre. These will always produce a negative result. People are being sent back to care homes after these tests.
