It’s been instructive to observe how accurate the diplomatic briefings of Kim Darroch have been. And also how cowardly the likely next Prime Minister of Britain (I can no longer find it in myself to write “Great Britain”) is being.
As the Guardian states: Kim Darroch has effectively been sacked by Boris Johnson on the orders of Donald Trump.
It’s worth repeating the final paragraph:
Johnson will go through the doors of Downing Street at some point this month smiling and wanting to be loved, but many will instead see him, as one interviewer, Eddie Mair, described him, as “a nasty piece of work”. In the words of the chairman of the foreign affairs select committee, Tom Tugendhat, a former army officer: “Leaders stand up for their men. They encourage them to try and defend them when they fail.”
Meanwhile, on the other side of the pond, another “nasty piece of work” continues to pump out his poison to the world.
