One would have thought that Our Man in Washington would have been an Atlanticist, intent on building the closest co-operation with our most important ally. That Sir Kim Darroch is an EU man is sadly no surprise. He was the wrong man appointed to the wrong job at the wrong time by a Tory government which is still coming to terms with events in 2016.
Even so I’d have said he should be left in place until recalled later this year. But his peddling of cocktail party tittle-tattle and lies about the President makes him unfit to carry on.
He needs to be defenestrated.
