The former health secretary whose office handed a £26 million PPE contract to Matt’s best chum who owns his local boozer, has despite being thrice jabbed, caught covid for a second time. How come? Disraeli has the answer. Or maybe it was Charles James Fox.
Most folks suggest that it was Gladstone who said “Mr. Disraeli, you will probably die by the hangman’s noose or a vile disease.” Disraeli replied: “Sir, that depends upon whether I embrace your principles or your mistress.” Others suggest that the exchange was between the Earl of Sandwich and Fox.
We all know that Hancock has been very keen on embracing the woman who was his mistress but his illness, undoubtedly the Omicron variant of covid, is perhaps down to the fact that, as Pfizer’s admirably honest boss Albert Bourla, admitted this week, his booster jab does not stop one catching Omicron.
Mr. Hancock’s principle, in as much as the spinless little creep has one other that self-advancement, is to tell folks they must get a booster jab, even if we now all know it does not work. In following his own principle Mr. Hancock has caught a disease, albeit a not terribly vile one since the survival rate from Omicron is, near as damn it, 100%.
