#1 The president could have PNG’d him for it, but didn’t. One hopes the next government over there more carefully matches personality and background with the assigned country, rather than going strictly by seniority. After all, they wouldn’t have assigned a Jewish lesbian to Saudi Arabia or Afghanistan, right? It doesn’t matter as much for support staff, but a country’s ambassador quickly becomes ineffective if he or she despises his hosts.

#2 From all their verbiage, it appears they're not really very sorry for his views. They keep repeating that it was unfortunate only that the uncouth correspondence was leaked.

"We should try to hide our hate more efficiently."

Let's see how they behave after their divorce from the Ewww!Yuchh!EU. If ever.

#5 I get the feeling that the Brits establishment still hasn't quite got over their loss of empire and prestige circa HRH Victoria.

#6 The only words I want to hear from foreign twits is "thank you" "yes sir" and "we're shipping out tomorrow."

#7 Do the Brits give out plum ambassadorships as political favors the way we do?

#8 According to something I read the other day, james, it’s strictly seniority among their diplomatic service professionals. Not at all like we do.
