The covid WhatsApp leaks have pulled even more people into the mire with Matt Hancock.
The messages, leaked to the Telegraph, appear to show Williamson accusing teachers of looking for an “excuse” not to teach during the early stages of the Covid pandemic.
Also in another WhatsApp exchange in October 2020, after Williamson announced a delay to exams for the following year, Hancock praised him for his “cracking announcement”, adding: “What a bunch of absolute arses the teaching unions are.”
Williamson replied: “I know they really really do just hate work.”
Geoff Barton, the general secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders, said it showed “an appalling lack of respect for teachers” at a time of national emergency when unions were trying to engage constructively with government.
