I wrote on Sunday that the UK’s Ambassador to the United States, Kim Darroch was a goner.
Nothing especially intuitive about doing so; the fact that a series of extremely insulting comments from Darroch about President Trump pretty decisively sealed his fate.
Well, today he’s gone. The news just came out that he has “resigned” — more likely, sacked – but given the chance to say he was resigning to save face.
I didn’t know his name until a few days ago. I doubt many people outside diplomatic circles did. And I doubt many people – me included – will miss him.
