Disgraced former Health Secretary Matt Hancock appears to have unintentionally become a TikTok star – because that’s the stage of dystopia that we have reached.
Posting on the social media platform, popular among those from generation Z and young millennials, a user named Georgia shared images and videos of her and a group of friends haranguing Hancock, who posed with them for selfies on a platform on the London Underground.
The video says: “So we chased this man thinking it was someone we knew and it turned out to be Matt Hancock. We had a good old chat. We terrorised the poor man.”
Hancock has laid low lately after being forced to resign for breaking social distancing rules by having an affair with his aide. He has since been snapped in Cornwall soaking up the sun and paddling in rock pools - so at least he’s cheering up.
We’re glad he has a good career as an influencer, since politics hasn’t really worked out for him.
