    David Mellor ex Barrister MP Minister for Health in 1988 eviscerates Hancock. See Mail on Sunday.



    1. cause (an event or situation, typically one that is undesirable) to happen suddenly, unexpectedly, or prematurely:

    “‘Follow the science,’ Hancock burbles, like a well-trained parrot. What science, Matt?

    There is no such thing as ‘the science’, just a lot of argumentative experts ineffectually ring-mastered by Whitty and Vallance.

    They draw up tendentious proposals for Hancock to swallow, or provide him with excuses, like the latest claim that a new strain of the virus is running amok and could lead to untold deaths.”

    “Hancock failed to anticipate the arrival of the virus. He failed to stock up on PPE to deal with it, even handing a lot back to the Chinese to help them resolve their problems in Wuhan.

    He failed to stop infected people being returned to care homes, thereby precipitating an appalling death toll among the elderly and vulnerable. ”

    In January 1988 during an official visit to Israel he protested angrily in front of press and TV cameras to an Israeli army colonel about what he saw as the “excessive” and brutal way troops were treating local Palestinians. Mellor’s furious demand that it be stopped, and later statement to journalists that the treatment was “an affront to civilised values” was broadcast around the world, and caused an international incident for which Mellor refused point blank to apologise. He was later privately reprimanded by Thatcher.

    He was briefly Minister for Health in 1988, where he was responsible for health service reforms, before he was made a Privy Councillor in 1990 by Margaret Thatcher, shortly before she resigned as Prime Minister.

    Following the Dunblane school shooting in 1996 when Thomas Hamilton shot dead 16 children and their teacher before killing himself, Mellor participated in a backbench revolt against the Government, which subsequently led to the almost complete banning of the owning and possession of handguns.

    In a precursor to the “phone-hacking” scandal that would engulf Rupert Murdoch’s News of the World in 2006 and later in 2010, their telephone conversations had been secretly recorded by de Sancha’s landlord, an activity which at the time was entirely legal in England.[13] The Sun, relying on material supplied by publicist Max Clifford, made a number of lurid fictional claims about the relationship that de Sancha later admitted in a newspaper interview were entirely untrue;[14] this was subsequently confirmed by David Mellor in 2011 at the Leveson Inquiry into Press Behaviour.[15][16]
