"Matt Hancock's slippery excuses – Is the former Secretary of State for Health being honest about his reasons to go on 'I'm a Celeb'?" by Laura Dodsworth
We still really need to talk about Midazolam and the role Matt Hancock played.
I thank Laura Dodsworth for publishing this great piece about swivel-eyed former UK Secretary of Health, Matt Hancock who was complicit in crimes against humanity during his tenure by ordering massive supplies of Midazolam in 2020. Midazolam was previously most notable for its use in the lethal injection given to execute death row prisoners.
I have included information about the sinister use of Midazolam in the UK after Laura’s excellent article which I am reposting.
Is the former Secretary of State for Health being honest about his reasons to go on 'I'm a Celeb'?
By Laura Dodsworth • 2 November 2022
Perhaps all politicians have a little bit of the forked tongue about them. Politics can be a viper pit, after all. Matt Hancock’s article in The Sun today, justifying his decision to take part in the reality TV show, ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!’ is as slithery as a carpet python.
Persuasion is as old as democracy, of course. Aristotle’s Art of Rhetoric proposed a triad of persuasion: ethos, pathos and logos. Hancock has pulled them all out of his jungle knapsack. The article makes a few rather transparent attempts to persuade us of his credibility (ethos) and it appeals to our emotion (pathos) and reason (logos). Is it enough to guarantee survival in the jungle and beyond?
Let’s deconstruct some of the more slippery comments…
“For example, while most people will know me for being the Health Secretary during the pandemic, what you probably won’t know is that I am dyslexic, and I’ve been campaigning for better identification and support for dyslexic children.”
This simultaneously begs for our sympathy as it bids for moral superiority, since he has had to overcome the challenge of being dyslexic, while also intending to use the TV show’s platform to “help every dyslexic child unleash their potential”. Cue campfire heart-to-heart chats about dyslexia.
“Reality TV is a very different way to communicate with the electorate — it’s both honest and unfiltered.”
Reality TV is decidedly not reality, nor honest and unfiltered. The set, the show’s premise and the coterie of celebrities is about as staged as it gets. The program will be controlled and edited to the hilt. He can’t possibly think this is “honest”, so to describe it as such reveals a lot about his own honesty. If he does think it’s honest (and surely he doesn’t) it says something different about gullibility and intellect.
“While some will say reality TV should be beneath a politician, I think we’ve got to go to where the people gather.”
This is a blatant attempt to leverage both your ego and fear of shame. If you criticise Hancock doing this, you criticise “the people” and you wouldn’t want to be a snob would you? No, you should be a good person of the people and support politicians on reality TV!
He also attempts an appeal to reason here. He puts forward that it is reasonable to expect politicians to go where the people gather, although this is a rather novel and unconventional way to go about it. Pish to the traditional idea that politicians go to constituency surgeries and the House of Commons!
“I’ve talked to the whips, in the same way any MP would when going on a foreign visit."
Here’s a nice try at credibility. “Visit” hints at official engagement rather than holiday. But did he talk to the whips before or after making the decision? I’m going to speculate it was after the fee was agreed.
“We all know that many people are turned off by the aggressive ‘gotcha’ questioning and insider presumptions of political news.”
He is pre-empting - or, in modern parlance, ‘pre-bunking’ - our cynicism. Any challenge (such as this article) is guilty of an underhand line in “gotcha” questioning.
“Like you, politicians are human, with hopes and fears, and normal emotions just like everyone else.”
Will he garner sympathy for his humanity by appearing on a reality TV show, or risk yet more disapproval? At the time of writing, there were over 3,000 replies to his tweet, nearly all negative.Next week, I'm going into the jungle, as part of this year's Read why in here👇 thesun.co.uk/tv/20292691/ma…
Appearing on a reality TV show speaks more to the calibre and credibility of a modern day politician than his humanity. Would Margaret Thatcher have taken part? Or Clement Attlee? Winston Churchill?
This plea is also the ultimate appeal to pathos. Who wouldn’t agree with the meat of it? Politicians are human. Their fellow politicians and the media quite often treat them very harshly. They have to face a deluge of criticism, ad hominem and threats. It can be a dangerous job, literally.
But politicians occupy important positions of public service and as such we expect high standards of behaviour. Primary to the integrity of the role should be putting the obligations of public service above personal interests.
‘I’m a Celeb’ will earn him a nice fee and coincides with the release of his new book. And this is why his knapsack of neat arguments fails. Persuasive rhetoric must be underscored by honesty and integrity. His article rings hollow. His arrival in the jungle is a clear departure from the public service of politics. It’s a jungle out there and Hancock is looking after himself.

We still really need to talk about Midazolam and the role Matt Hancock played
For those of you who are not resident in the UK the following video by mainstream media outlet ITV provides an overview of his alleged “rise” and fall which states that his credibility was “stretched to breaking point by his own actions.”
In his role of Health Secretary Matt Hancock became infamous for his complete lack of integrity for breaking his own “social distancing” rules amongst many other failings including advice to not hug your grandma. He revealed himself to be an insincere hypocrite of great proportion after an affair was exposed and he resigned his position in June 2021.
Midazolam however is not mentioned.
Here we have Hancock allegedly “close to tears as he reveals his step grandfather died from Covid.” Please note that he is reading from a script in the House of Commons.
Even The Telegraph reported that Matt Hancock's "step-grandfather" who died of Covid-19 was his step-father's ex-wife's second husband!
In this performance with Piers and Susanna playing supporting roles, we have Hancock trying to cover-up what is evidently sniggering with more fake crocodile tears about what was presented as the momentous moment when the allegedly first covid “vaccine” was injected into an elderly woman (whom many thought was a crisis actor).
There are clips of this but I am going to burden you with the complete episode of Good Morning Britain aired 8 December 2020 which bears this description:
Matt Hancock spoke to Piers and Susanna on the day the first Pfizer vaccine was administered to members of the public at University Hospital, Coventry. After watching the moment a gentleman name[ed] William Shakespeare spoke about receiving the coronavirus vaccine, the Health Secretary could be seen wiping away tears.
Matt Hancock and Midazolam
What is Midazolam? Please watch this short video clip.
The following is an excerpt from The Pharmaceutical Journal published 19 May 2020.
Midazolam is listed by the Royal College of Anaesthetists as a “first-line” sedative in the management of COVID-19 patients, and warns in guidance published on 2 April 2020 that it “may be subject to demand pressure”.
Matt Hancock, the UK health secretary, told the House of Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee on 17 April 2020 that intensive therapy unit medicines — including midazolam — are part of “a delicate supply chain” as they “are made in a relatively small number of factories around the world”.
While the DHSC confirmed that midazolam is still available to both primary and secondary care, it added that some suppliers of the sedative had limited or no stock availability.
A spokesperson from Accord Healthcare told The Pharmaceutical Journal on 11 May 2020 that it was out of stock of midazolam injection after the NHS requested it “place all of its stock of midazolam — equivalent to around two year’s forecasted supply — into its wholesale partners”, even though the manufacturer “does not currently have any NHS contracts in England” to supply the drug.
“As a result of the NHS request [in March 2020], we are subsequently out of stock,” said Peter Kelly, managing director of Accord Healthcare.
However, he added that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) had given the manufacturer approval “for some French label stock — another 22,000 packs — to be sold into the NHS and [we] are currently waiting for the MHRA’s direction on where to place the stock”.
In this video we have Matt Hancock confirming the mass purchase of Midazolam whilst giving oral evidence during the Preparations for Coronavirus, House of Commons 36 to the UK Government’s Health and Social Care Committee on Friday, 17 April 2020.
At the time, Jeremy Hunt was the chair of the Health and Social Care Committee. Hunt is currently the newly appointed Chancellor of the Exchequer.
The fellow asking Hancock questions is Dr. Luke Evans.

We still need to talk about Midazolam
I recommend reading, We need to talk about Midazolam by The Daily Exposé published 3 June 2021.
I also recommend listening to family members who have lost loved ones as a result of the use of lethal cocktails of Midazolam and Morphine in care homes and hospitals during the intense covid era of medical tyranny and genocide.
If you haven’t before, please watch A good death? published in December 2021.
In a new and original film from Ickonic Media, we hear the heartbreaking stories from people who lost loved ones to fatal doses of morphine and Midazolam.
Each year, tens of thousands of elderly and terminally ill patients are quietly euthanised in NHS facilities. In hospitals, care homes and hospices, behind closed doors, their deaths are hastened in what appears to be a caring and humane way. But how has this practice of euthanasia – illegal in the UK and carrying a life prison sentence - become so widespread and acceptable? And why are people who are nowhere near the end of their lives being given killer ‘cocktails’ of drugs that are used in many US states for executions?
The sinister end of life Liverpool Pathway was never abolished. It was renamed.
There are many replies to Tony Stowell’s tweet by family members whose loved ones died in similar circumstances.
A simple search on Twitter with his name pulls up a lot of people appropriately enraged by Hancock garnering attention as an alleged celebrity.
It is beyond unconscionable that narcissist Matt Hancock is enjoying the spotlight on “I’m a Celeb” when he played a pivot role in the deaths of far too many dear souls.
Everyone involved in committing and enabling horrific crimes against humanity under the guise of the alleged Covid-19 global health emergency must be held to account through Nuremberg-type trials and sentenced accordingly.
