“then came in many ways the most extraordinary remark of the lot (Sir Simon Fraser: Head of FO). “Nothing like this has ever happened before,” McDonald told another MP. “There must be consequences. What they are in detail I can’t tell you this afternoon.” theguardian.com/commentisfree/…
There is NO precedent for a Head of State anywhere in the world, not even Venezuela or Iran, behaving as Trump has done.

3 people brought Darroch down. The Leaker. The US Present. Boris Johnson.

Oh. And Oakshott/The Mail.
3/ “Britain’s postwar belief that it is a unique bridge between Europe and the US is more rickety now than ever. The Brexiters are set on destroying one end of the bridge. Trump is equally bent on blowing up the other. “
“As the bridge begins to collapse, so does the transatlantic foreign policy that Darroch & others have battled so hard to sustain.

As Simon McDonald put it today to the foreign affairs committee, there will be consequences. There certainly will.
And none will be good ones.”
