This alternative Matt Hancock resignation video is almost as cringeworthy – and a lot funnier
The Matt Hancock story – and we don’t need to specify which one – has been machine-gunned into our news feeds over the past few days, with each update more stupefying than the last.
One of those updates came via a video from Matt Hancock.

The former Health Secretary’s resignation statement – which didn’t include the grovelling apology very much deserved by the public – garnered a lot of reactions.
I really, really can’t believe he’s dropped a ‘build back better’ in there. I don’t know why I can’t believe it. But I still can’t. https://t.co/qCIkA7HPTf

This message isn't for us.
It's for his paymasters ("build back better" anyone…? 🙄)
Now he'll be free to pocket much more than someone else's wife.
Horrible little man driven by his own agenda. https://t.co/uZQOdQ3Vnj

Sad that it took a corridor snog and clump of arsecheek to get rid of him considering all the many lives his tenure cost and all the public money he wasted https://t.co/c5m8NynGTi

Comedian Alistair Green also reacted to the cringeworthy appearance – with his own version. It’s a comedic triumph, but not safe for work.

My buddy, Grant Shapps, said
“Look, let’s not judge him on hos private life. Let’s judge him on his time in office.”
That’s not ideal, I don’t think. Don’t really judge me on that, either.
Maybe, I don’t know, judge me on my charisma.
Alistair’s video was far more well received than Hancock’s.
Give this don a TV show I beg. https://t.co/Zu6O6yt2j8

"trust me, it's knickers" might just be the greatest one liner outside of Seinfeld. Absolutely brilliant

You can tell it’s good, because it has that Partridge effect.
This is scarily good and now I need to go and shower and use a godly amount of hot water and soap to make myself feel clean again.
