Cameron’s worst man for the job

Right now, David Cameron is lobbying hard to ensure his mate Andrew Lansley becomes the next UN Humanitarian Chief at the expense of others far more qualified.

Syria, Ebola, South Sudan... the world's humanitarian system is facing one of the biggest crises it has ever known. This to-do list requires an experienced, qualified leader. Yet, Cameron wants Lansley -- he of the devastating NHS reforms fame and with zero humanitarian experience -- to be the man.

We only have days to stop this crazy appointment -- if enough of us come together we can unleash a media storm here in the UK and in UN circles that will put Cameron on the spot and urge Ban Ki-moon to reject Lansley and hire the best person for the job. Click to sign and then share with everyone.
