Jon Trickett comments on Nick Clegg taking up a new role at Facebook as head of Global Affairs

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to Nick Clegg taking up a new role at Facebook as head of Global Affairs, said:

“It is a damning indictment of the sorry state of our country’s politics that, at a time when digital giants such as Facebook are rightly coming under public scrutiny, our former Deputy Prime Minister has been hired to lobby on their behalf.

“Labour is committed to slamming shut the revolving door between politics and big business, which for too long has corroded public trust in politics.”
