Matt Hancock’s trials won’t end with I’m A Celebrity

It seems Matt Hancock’s bid to be seen as a real person by going on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here may backfire on him as soon as he gets home.

Residents in his Parliamentary constituency aren’t happy:

And Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards Kathryn Stone reckons she has received dozens of complaints about Hancock’s decision to go to the jungle.

She said she couldn’t investigate because appearing on the show doesn’t breach the Commons Code of Conduct.

But she added: “It raises really important questions about members’ proper activities while they’re supposed to be fulfilling their parliamentary duties and representing their constituents.

“One member of the public contrasted the dignity of veterans on Remembrance Sunday with a former secretary of state… waiting for a buffet of animal genitalia and they wondered what had happened to the dignity of public office.”

So it seems he’ll come back from the rainforest into a storm.
