The Tory MP, who had to apologize in June for breaking covid restrictions after photos of him appeared kissing a close collaborator, while he was married.
Hancock plans to argue in parliament what would affect children in schools in England and Wales, however, the disgraced MP has faced hard-hitting questions over the violation of covid rules he created .
Phil asked, “Is it your dyslexia that means you misread the social distancing rules?” “
As Holly tried to stifle a smile, Hancock looked incredibly uncomfortable, responding, “No, I can’t blame that for dyslexia or anything.” Actually, I’m not asking for any special favors or anything because I’m dyslexic and in politics I have things to offer.

Today viewers couldn’t believe what they heard, with one tweet: “Savage from phil. “
While another wrote, “Best question Phil has asked in years.” “
A third wrote: “Phil, you are such a legend. “
