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.

    Cheerio, hip-hip, and all that rot.
