In a surprise move, Facebook has hired Nick Clegg as its head of global policy and communications. Nick Clegg is the former head of the UK’s Liberal Democrats. He was the country’s deputy prime minister in the David Cameron coalition government from 2010 to 2015, and lost his seat in parliament in the 2017 general election. He is to move to Silicon Valley in January. He offered an apology to British people for withdrawing so suddenly from Britain’s political life, saying he would “no longer seek to play a public role in the [Brexit] debate.”
