The notion the government might support or even encourage “normative” families as a building block of civilisation is “so offensive… so wrong” says Matt Hancock, the former Conservative government minister who was the chief cheerleader of Britain’s coronavirus lockdowns.
Matt Hancock, the George Osborne protégé who was the United Kingdom’s health minister during Covid whose zeal for imposing lockdowns on the country was only matched with his lust for breaking them to cheat on his wife of 15 years, has responded with anger at the idea the Conservative Party might stand for conservative ideals.
The ex-Conservative minister invoked the King, whose marriage had publicly failed at the time of the death of his first wife in 1997, as proof the government shouldn’t support traditional families whatsoever. Hancock said, per the Telegraph: “I don’t want to hear it again… It is so offensive and it’s so wrong. I mean, tell that to the King! He doesn’t have a normative family and he is absolutely a strong basis for society.
“…And don’t try to give any impression other than it is a completely fringe view within the Conservative Party.”
