I’m a sucker for reality TV, always have been. I just love it!
I was looking forward to this year’s I’m A Celebrity because it was back in Australia and the lineup looked good. But then rumours started about Matt Hancock appearing.
I genuinely thought at first that it might be a load of rubbish because surely as an acting MP he couldn’t go off on a reality show jolly while he was being paid to work for his constituents.
My naivety knows no bounds. Because bam just like that he’s in that jungle like a dirty little rat up a drainpipe.
The reasons that he has given for going on the show are the same old soundbites used by many out-of-touch politicians when embarking on reality show fame. Apparently, It’s all about connecting with the masses, speaking to the commoners, and reaching out to the youth.
What a load of utter, utter Bollocks!
We all know that the conservatives assume the vast majority of us are idiots, and he probably thinks that by sucking on a few kangaroo anuses’ that we’ll totally forget how much of a lying, letchy little twat he is. He thinks that all will be forgiven at last and he can finally move onwards and upwards.
Once again it’s a woeful display of not being able to read the room.
Let me leave you under no illusions – this is a man desperate to be liked and adored. He is a fame-hungry narcissist who has seen a shameless opportunity to redeem his shady character whilst earning £400,000 AND taking his full pay as a serving MP.
The neediness is sickening enough but the monetary gain is outrageous when set against the current backdrop. So many people more worthy and deserving than him are genuinely struggling right now.
Combine this with what we’ve already endured from this government and it’s hard to not get angry.
Matt Hancock should not be getting a platform because of being professionally neglectful.
Matt Hancock should not be getting a platform because of his ability to lie and cheat.
Matt Hancock should not be getting a platform for humiliating his children.
It’s easy to find it funny and feel like he’s getting his comeuppance because of the horrible tasks he will inevitably do, but let’s not forget the amount of money he’s getting paid to do this. It’s not so funny or self-deprecating then, is it?
Trying to act like the hero enduring tasks with an air of being in some sort of political purgatory makes me furious. This false show of remorse is not working for me I’m just left questioning why he is working harder in a reality tv programme than he seemingly did during a global pandemic when the whole country was looking to him and his cronies to actually do something right for once.
I’m not going to say don’t watch it, because quite simply it’s hard not to, but f you do watch and you start to feel like he’s ‘actually quite a good bloke’ please do me one thing. Stand up, slap yourself hard, and remember that this it’s a ploy to manipulate your emotions and think of him as a better person than he is. He’s not a good bloke, he’s an absolute cock.
Matt Hancock is not a celebrity, get him out of there…
