Former British Health Secretary Tries to Justifies Adultery | National Review

Matt Hancock, the former British Health Secretary, who resigned after he was caught breaking his own social-distancing rules — by having an affair — told a podcast host that he was sorry for the hypocrisy, but he just “fell in love” — “something that was completely outside of my control.”

Is having an affair something that just happens to you? Is betraying your wife and children outside of your control? Of course not. Hancock’s attempt to twist adultery into a mawkishly self-serving narrative is grotesque.
