Sorry, badly worded.
Her tone of voice didn't come across as at all angry. Her body language had the look of a woman constraining her rage, for sure, but her voice didn't, which makes Hancock's dickish response even more dickish
I agree. Hancock behaved like a chauvanistic prat of the first order. I am of the opinion that women - anyone really, but particularly women - are allowed to be angry, and anger should never be met with the kind of patronising 'now, now, dear, don't upset yourself' reply Hancock gave.

Especially when we all end up talking about that, and not her excellent points about testing, PPE and manipulating statistics.

It's not like the Tories have a history of being patronising to women, is it? Oh wait... Calm down, dear.

In a just world, Hancock reacting like that to someone taking this seriously and his attitude that the current situation isn't something worth getting worked up about - not that Dr. Allin Khan was worked up, though had she been, it would have been justifiable - should have the same effect on his career as Neville Chamberlain's "and I do have friends in this house" had on his.

Hancock doesn't seem to have been minding his tone today, what with trying to bray over Starmer. It's almost as if his whinging re: Dr. Allin Khan was about something other than tone...

Thankfully the speaker put him in his place pretty promptly, inc a "Do you want to leave the chamber?" when Hancock tried to argue the toss. Good to see Starmer stay cool and let him embarass himself, too.

"Do you want to leave the chamber?" is not far from 'Do you want to be put on the naughty step?'

It's as if there are two conversations. Labour asking reasonable questions as to why things were not done, and the Conservatives behaving like a particularly obnoxious class of Year 9s.

Johnson saying that Starmer feigned ignorance was particularly stupid as Starmer hadn't said anything that that could have referred to.

Still, there was a comedy question by a Tory nonentity asking Johnson whether he agreed that the government was wonderful for announcing a new railway in his constituency.
Have you considered stupidity as an explanation

Secretary of State for Health, I don't mind you advising the Prime Minister but you don't need to advise the Leader of the Opposition

I'd love to see him throw the book at them. I mean, it's a heavy book, it'd probably leave quite a bruise.
