UK health secretary who promoted the UK Covid lockdown, while profiting financially from the UK government's handling of the event.
Matthew John David Hancock is a UK politician who was made UK/Secretary of State for Health and Social Care in July 2018. A relatively young and obscure politician, he came to the limelight during the UK handling of the declared Covid-19 Pandemic, where he fronted several of the government's most draconian lockdown policies.
On 26 June 2021, Matt Hancock resigned as Health Secretary following publication in The Sun of pictures of Hancock in a clinch with his political adviser Gina Coladangelo that were recorded by CCTV in his office. In his letter of resignation, Hancock said:
"I want to reiterate my apology for breaking the guidance, and apologise to my family and loved ones for putting them through this."
Ann Johns on Twitter reacted:
"Hancock should have resigned over the Serco contract, the Care Home deaths, the PPE disaster, the treatment of NHS workers and carers & especially 160K deaths caused by incompetence. Job gone, marriage over & probably an investigation to face & bring justice to grieving families."
Hancock attended Farndon County Primary School, in Farndon, Cheshire, and the independent King's School, Chester. He took A-levels in maths, physics, computing and economics. He later studied computing at the further education college, West Cheshire College. He studied at Exeter College, Oxford, and graduated with a first in philosophy, politics and economics, and earned a MPhil degree in Economics at Christ's College, Cambridge a few years later. Hancock became a member of the Conservative Party in 1999.

Before that, he gushed enthusiastically of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, stating in a Parliament speech "And I’m delighted to speak alongside so many impressive colleagues who really understand this, and alongside Professor Klaus Schwab who literally ‘wrote the book’ on the 4th Industrial Revolution. Your work, bringing together as you do all the best minds on the planet, has informed what we are doing, and I’m delighted to work with you."
