Quote :
Barnaby Joyce and Tony Abbott have been asked to serve as special envoys under Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Mr Joyce has been appointed the special envoy for drought assistance and recovery, while Mr Abbott will be the special envoy for Indigenous affairs.

Here's what that means and why they've been given the job.
What is a special envoy?

A special envoy's job is to act as an advocate and advisor for their specific cause.

It is not a ministerial position — Mr Joyce and Mr Abbott are not official members of Mr Morrisons' * ministry — but it is a high-profile job that will require good communication and negotiation skills.

*Morrison doesn't need the apostrophe at the end ...  a word like "Charles" does ... ABC reporters are useless. Some people with a PHD and can't spell.

What do or can they do?  Not much.... and tony has stated he will not talk about Constitutional change so there goes the agenda for the more radical lefties and Aborigines.

and yes Morrison's is the correct usage.
