Breaking news, sources confirm the UK Ambassador to the U.S has resigned after days of bitter spat between the United Kingdom and United States over comments the Ambassador made in a leaked memo to officials at number 10.
President Trump did not take lightly the words the ambassador used to describe him and his Government and had continued attacking the UK, Theresa May and the foreign office. Like a Gatling Gun shredding everything in its path President went on a three day rant branding the Ambassador as a ” very Stupid Guy” among other vicious names he called the UK Ambassador.
Sir Kim Darroch said “impossible” to do his job” and for that reason he is stepping down from his post as the UK man in Washington.
The Foreign Office headed by Jeremy Hunt who himself said last night that if he became prime minister the Ambassador would remain in office has addressed the Ambassador’s decision as showing “professionalism and class”.
Sir Kim’s letter said:
“Since the leak of official documents from this Embassy there has been a great deal of speculation surrounding my position and the duration of my remaining term as ambassador.” “I want to put an end to that speculation.”
The ousted Prime minster said it was a
“matter of great regret” that Sir Kim felt the need to resign, expressing that officials needed to be able to give “full and frank advice”. “Sir Kim has given a lifetime of service to the United Kingdom and we owe him an enormous debt of gratitude,”
Boris Johnson who is widely speculated to be the next prime minister of the United Kingdom yesterday in a televised debate said whoever was responsible for the leak “has done a grave disservice to our civil servants”.
