Winston Hancock

Former Osborne bagcarrier turned BIS Junior Minister Matt Hancock is well known for his own sense of self-importance, but just in case you were not aware, he has confirmed his status as a great Tory statesman on the record. Speaking about other young ministers, Hancock has told this week’s Speccie:

“Well, I remind people that Winston Churchill is widely regarded as one of the finest statesmen our country has ever seen . . . likewise, William Pitt became prime minister in his 20s, and both of these men achieved great heights over their careers…I have a huge affinity for Disraeli.”

Good to see being promoted to Vince Cable’s No. 3 has not gone to his head…
