He didn't seem to add anything or, as another poster has pointed out, provide any new 'evidence' for his schoolboy insults.
And how do you know he was simply regurgitating gossip?
One really would expect much better from a high flying diplomat.
And indeed - from our Prime Ministers comments, its perfectly clear that she got much better. He had his ear close to the ground and was reporting faithfully what was going on. Should he have just ignored the disfunctional behaviour in the White House and pretended that all was OK?
On this basis Trump's reporting of Darroch as being said to be a pompous fool seems quite accurate and in Trump's case perhaps it's an example of 'it takes one to know one'?
I can't see anything pompous about our Ambassador's behaviour. Make your own mind up about Trump
Boris will no doubt have to find some way of replacing him as he obviously can't continue after this if the US Government won't have any dealings with him.
I think you are correct about Boris - not well known for his Moral Fibre. The Third Runway?
From Max Hastings:- Yet his graver vice is cowardice, reflected in a willingness to tell any audience, whatever he thinks most likely to please, heedless of the inevitability of its contradiction an hour later.
