Why? You should applaud him for telling the truth.
Isn't that what he is supposed to do?
But the real point is that all his actions that are in the public eye have been entirely self-serving and not in the best interests of anybody else - travelling to Durham, taking part in SAGE meetings, illegally proroguing parliament - not the govt he was employed by, not joe public and not the more abstract concept of the "nation". Speaking "the truth" now is part of the same pattern.
Of course you don't ignore what he says, but you have to recognise that he is saying it for his own self-interest.
And even then we didn't really need him to tell us the "truths" that Hancock should be fired or that Johnson is unfit to be PM.
