REGARDING Matt Hancock , I accept that he is human like the rest of us and probably not a bad sort but what sticks in my craw, and what I have thought for ages now, is how hollow, unfelt and condescending have sounded his repeated exhortations to support the NHS.

I would just politely like to ask how many Tory MPs are signed up to private health care?

The NHS is meant to be free for all of us; why then do these folk opt out?

People should be treated on priority of need alone and queue jumping facilitated by personal wealth should not be countenanced in any decent civilised society Maybe I heard wrongly but what I picked up on was a wheedling drone as if he were talking down to a lesser breed he considered to be beneath him.

I doubt whether Mr Hancocks replacement will be any different.
