The Right Honourable Matthew, also known simply as Matthew, was an MP in the Parliament of Essexia. He was a member of the Liberal Socialist and Cooperative Party, and Minister of Foreign Affairs; serving as the Essexian ambassador to the Grand Unified Micronational, in which, he was the Vice-Chairman.

Foreign Affairs

He served as the Essexian Ambassador to the Grand Unified Micronational, and took an active role in Essexian diplomacy.

The Grand Unified Micronational

Although not one of the pioneers of the Essexian admittance into the GUM, Matthew had risen to be a prominent figure in Essexia regarding its membership of the organisation. As the Minister for Foreign Affairs, he was one of the three delegates responsible for representing Essexia, alongside Emperor Terry. As a result of the Emperors political neutrality and the convention that the First Minister devolves internationally related powers to the Foreign Office, Matthew was the highest-ranking member of the delegation and was the de-facto head of the mission. Inside the GUM, he was nominated as Associate Supreme Justice by Bradley, Duke of Dullahan during the latter's term as Chair of the Grand Unified Micronational, and was subsequently voted into the role, which he lost upon Bradley's departure from office.

On the 28th June 2019, Lord Matthew was one of the members of the Essexian delegation to the 2019 GUM Birmingham Summit.

Matthew supported His Imperial Majesty King Thomas I in his candidacy for Chairmanship of the GUM, and was his running mate and thus candidate for Vice-Chairman. Upon Thomas's victory, Matthew became the Vice-Chairman of the organisation, something which was widely seen and celebrated as the greatest diplomatic success in Essexian history, and the first time Essexia had been given a forward role on the micronational stage.

Upon the victory of Newton von Uberquie as Chairman in 2020, he maintained his position and continued to serve as Vice Chairman.
