    Insufficient Evidence - Matt Hancock Leak

    So no prosecutions

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics...o-prosecutions

    No one will be prosecuted over the leak of CCTV footage showing Matt Hancock engaged in a clinch with a colleague in his office, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has announced.

    The footage and stills of the embrace, which prompted his resignation as health secretary, were leaked to the Sun in June last year. It was most likely obtained by someone using their phone to record a CCTV screen, the ICO said

    Hancock stepped down from government a day after the images emerged, showing him kissing Gina Coladangelo, a longtime friend who was also a non-executive director at the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), inside his ministerial office.

    The footage was shot on 6 May last year, meaning the clinch was a breach of Covid social distancing rules. Under the government’s unlocking timetable, intimate contact with people outside your own household was only permitted from 17 May.

    The ICO launched an investigation into alleged breaches of the Data Protection Act. Several weeks after the footage emerged, data protection officers raided two homes in the south of England, seizing computer equipment and electronic devices.

    In its statement on Wednesday the ICO said it had “found insufficient evidence to prosecute two people suspected of unlawfully obtaining and disclosing CCTV footage” from the health department.

    The only person who should be prosecuted as a result of that footage is Matt Hancock, and that's for giving teenage boys the impression such behaviour is acceptable. It is universally accepted once one is over the age of 12, on no account is it permissible to grope the arse of a member of the opposite sex while simultaneously attempting to clean the poor girl's tonsils with one's tongue.
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

      But politicians are notorious for their contortions. For example, they can sit on a fence and keep both ears to the ground!

          So would you prefer the prosecution to go ahead without any evidence?
