Do not listen to this tin pot dictator Matt Hancock

A letter from Dominic Gallagher:

Matt Hancock’s proposed 10 year jail terms for breaking Covid travel rules is longer than the current seven year jail terms for child sex offences. One MP has rightly described the proposal as “psychotic”.

This is nothing new coming from the man who thought a good Covid awareness slogan was ‘Don’t kill your Gran’.

The government has been effectively waging psychological warfare on the population. A GP that I spoke to described how he receives daily calls from people in their twenties who are afraid to go outside.

It is in the interest of everyone to not listen to this tin pot dictator Hancock and enjoy some fresh air, preferably with friends.
