PRIME MINISTER WAS RIGHT NOT TO SACK HANCOCK OVER AFFAIR, SAYS MICHAEL GOVE
Boris Johnson was proper to not sack Matt Hancock after proof of his workplace affair emerged, Michael Gove has stated.
The former well being secretary resigned the day after pictures of him kissing advisor Gina Coladangelo have been printed by The Sun newspaper.
The Prime Minister subsequently claimed, by his spokesman, that he “thought of the matter closed” after Mr Hancock apologised to him for breaking social distancing guidelines with the embrace inside his Whitehall workplace.
But the next day the married 42-yr-previous West Suffolk MP introduced he was resigning.
Asked about the saga throughout a go to to Aberdeen, Mr Gove, the Cabinet Minister, stated: “I believe that Matt made the proper resolution. I believe in all of those questions, all of us have a chance to replicate on totally different elements of the matter. But now that Matt has made his resolution, I believe we must always respect that.”
