    Matt Hancock (the scumbag 'nasty party's' former health secretary) has now been appointed a UN special envoy in Africa. Hmmmmm - I wonder if this means he'll be giving up his parliamentary seat and the £81,000 salary that goes with it ???, or, like a great many of the scumbag 'nasty party' members, he'll keep his seat in the House of Commons and work for the UN part-time.

    Matt Hancock has announced he has been appointed a special representative to the United Nations.

    The former health secretary will focus on helping African countries recover from Covid-19.

    He said he was “honoured” to have been given the role, adding on Twitter: “I’ll be working with the UN, the UN Economic Commissions for Africa to help African economic recovery from the pandemic and promote sustainable development.”

    It comes four months after he resigned from his Cabinet role for breaking social distancing rules by kissing and embracing an aide in his office.

    Honoured to be appointed United Nations Special Representative.

    I’ll be working with the @UN @ECA_OFFICIAL to help African economic recovery from the pandemic and promote sustainable development.

    According to the UN, African countries face paying more than £300 billion to recover from the pandemic.

    The under secretary-general of the UN, Vera Songwe, said Mr Hancock’s “success” in handling the UK’s pandemic response is a testament to the strengths he will bring to the role.

    In a letter posted on Twitter by Mr Hancock, Ms Songwe said: “The acceleration of vaccines that has led the UK move faster towards economic recovery is one testament to the strengths that you will bring to this role, together with your fiscal and monetary experience.

    “The role will support Africa’s cause at the global level and ensure the continent builds forward better, leveraging financial innovations and working with major stakeholders like the G20, UK government and COP26.”
