It is if it’s not meant to be broadcast.

In fact it’s a large part of a diplomat’s job, you dumb fûck.


But it was broadcast and he resigned you mong.

The US ambassador was openly critical of the effect Brexit would have on the UK and the way it was being handled in that Channel 4 programme. That’s with a TV camera pointed at him.


And did we say that we would ban him from anything to do with the UK government or refuse him any access to government buildings after that ?

You're digging a hole for yourself. The only good thing about him going now is we can put a new ambassador in place before the new PM is announced.

He wasn't expelled, he resigned.

By the same logic would you consider the EU as threatening the UK every time a Brexit minister resigned?


He resigned because the president said, amongst other things, he wouldn’t deal with him and the idiot appeaser about to take over here didn’t stand up for him but instead waffled as he always does.

And the EU have never refused to deal with whoever we choose to put in front of them. If they had done, people like you would be screaming about it.

What the hell are you talking about.

I think the whole situation is a disgrace and I’d have expelled the US ambassador if Trump continued to refuse to deal with our ambassador.

He’s not entitled to cut off diplomatic ties with a so called friendly nation because their ambassador is doing his job. No country has ever done that before. To anyone.

It’s pathetic.


He didn't break off diplomatic ties

It didn't matter that the idiot appeaser didn't stand up for him, he still had to go. How could he remain in such a position after his confidential notes were released.

He did nothing wrong, as many said, it's his job to be absolutely frank with his government.

The issue is who did this. I hope they are found and no leniency offered.

It's not diplomatic to call your allies inept and insecure.


The thing is of course is that Trump is both inept and insecure. The guy is an effin disgrace; a human effluent. Every US person that voted this cretin into office should be ashamed pf themselves. Their international reputation has nosedived, as has ours post the Brexit referendum.

OK, I see.

the Ambassador works at the Embassy, and its him alone then is it?

Or... There are others below the Ambassador who can stand in for him, these people or person would stand in for him until the issue was resolved, therefore maintaining diplomatic relations.

I'm quite willing to accept your grovelling apology now.

It’s not ok for anyone to be abusive to another poster.

I have to say, I do think you have had a bit of a mare on this thread though. The diplomat was doing his job, the person who leaked the memo is bang out of order. Looking in from the outside and reading the stories and with the media slant we are getting on this side of the Atlantic, it appears there are rifts in Washington, people coming and going, falling out etc.

Sorry, but you’ve just made that up.

This situation is unprecedented - you are making out there’s a procedure in place for when this happens.

They withdrew his invitation to a dinner in Washington where he was due to meet the hugely experienced, super talented Ivanka Trump. With Liam Fox. No one attended in his place or was invited to attend in his place from his team.

Chargé d'affaires is indeed an ambassadors deputy! There was in a Not The Nine O'Clock News sketch, a Belgian one in fact, a relative told me what it was.

He had an invite to a dinner, they withdrew it because it became known something he said they don't like.

That is not breaking off diplomatic relations.

You are aware i assume that breaking off diplomatic relations is breaking all links to a Country.

Sir Kim Darroch maybe big, but he is not a Country.

I have no doubt the situation is unprecedented, but diplomatic relations between the UK and the US remain intact.

The US president said that they (the US) would not deal with the ambassador. At all. Because he didn’t like what had been said in confidential communications.

The dinner was simply an example.

We all know what breaking off diplomatic relations with a country is. And, in effect, that’s what Trump did. It’s not as though Michael Tatham suddenly replaces him at all events and everyone just gets on with it.
And they certainly do not remain intact. They have been very severely damaged.
