SARAH VINE: I thank my lucky stars I wasn't married to Hancock 

The Block‘s always been aspirational. It was designed to be that, even when we picked the very first building on Bondi Beach,’ said Mr Cress.  ‘Although these houses are bigger, the prices that we’ll be quoting for them will be lower than last year’s.

Rising house prices: The houses on The Block are expected to sell for close to $4million this year – a far cry from the $700,000 Bondi homes sold during the show’s first season in 2003. Pictured: a stock photo of a young couple inspecting a home

Or manners, for cómo follar that matter. However, as that infamous shot of Jacob Rees-Mogg slouching like a well-oiled rake on the green benches in an impeccable Savile Row number proves, the cloth does not always maketh the man.

The DHS filed a Motion to Quash the subpoena and not provide the documents, arguing that the records requested by the Springdale Defendants are subject to confidentiality laws because they involve reports on the ‘maltreatment’ of children.

Which is why I’m absolutely certain that, as unlikely as it might seem to all sane, ordinary people, Hancock firmly believes he can still ‘have it all’ – and make a swift return to frontline politics. But Matt can’t see that because he can’t see past the end of his own throbbing ego.

‘The Defendant does not fall under any of the exceptions to the Arkansas Child Maltreatment Act’s confidentiality requirements, and Defendant has not asserted that it falls under any of the exceptions,’ the DHS argued.

It takes unshakable self-belief to be a success in high-level politics, and even when he was a pipsqueak nobody, it was clear that Hancock had the bearing and confidence of a Panzer. In some ways, it’s the nature of the beast.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph newspaper, a friend of his wife Martha said: ‘Matt Hancock is definitely not a gentleman. He keeps trying to suggest that all is fine when everyone has been left shattered by this.

He climbed over the bodies of a fair few former friends and supporters to get to the top, always convincing himself that he was doing it for the right reasons – even when it was crystal clear to anyone with half a brain that he really wasn’t.

The Springdale Defendants had subpoenaed the DHS to produce documentation they believe could help their argument that the allegations of sexual assault were already public knowledge before the police report was released to In Touch Weekly, documents obtained by show.

That element of self-delusion is, I find, often key to the behaviour of men like Hancock, who somehow manage to convince themselves that what they are doing is perfectly acceptable – even though it is anything but.

Maybe the general public really don’t care about the rank hypocrisy of a man who puts a country into lockdown and lectures its citizens about who they can and cannot have sex with – while exempting himself from his own rules by snogging an employee.
