The other end of this bell is currently in the Jungles of Australia, looking for forgiveness, it seems. I am not sure if he will get it or has chosen the right way to go about it. Volunteering at a care home, perhaps. But a narcissistic appearance on a reality TV show is unlikely to endear him to the nation’s hearts.
Amber Heard said she would donate any proceeds from her legal action to charity, I am not sure it ever reached the declared destination. So until the receipt is published, I will view the donation of all or part of Mr Hancock’s’ donations with a degree of scepticism.
My Children have already said the show is boring, and the inevitability of him being voted to do the trials is “boring.” The fact is he is just dull as a personality. The recent food eating was without reaction.
If he wants to pay penance, being covered in fish guts and portraying himself as a star-winning hero is not the way to do it. His role in the pandemic and the consequences were far too serious. The alleged mishandling of contracts and, above all, the decision to release elderly patients back into care homes. He should be sitting in front of a court of enquiry trying to defend his actions. Then being cast into the pages of history, portrayed as he deserves and cast into obscurity in the future. Unable to cash out his appalling behaviour with TV, book and after-dinner speeches.
I don’t ever wish bad ratings on any TV show; I want them all to succeed. Today the ratings for IAC are, of course, spectacular. I don’t think this is something anyone should regard with pride. We have the modern-day equivalent of throwing rotten vegetables at an unfortunate village scoundrel in the stocks. Mr Handcock’s actions deserve scrutiny and proper action to deter the cavalier politicians from near criminal activity. Company directors can be charged with fraud and manslaughter all of which attract custodial sentences, the same should be true of politicians. Otherwise to them, it’s just a game, like a reality TV show.
