Dysfunctional, clumsy, inept, insecure: it’s easy to apply all of these words to the Trump administration. Newspapers do so on a regular basis. Social media is full of it. But the diplomat’s job is different: to take a step back and try to solve the puzzles, or find method in the madness. For example: why, if Donald Trump is so awful, did he ever make it to the White House? If his presidency is an abomination, why does he stand such a good chance of re-election? How should British diplomats respond to the trends that Trump embodies which are changing politics (and diplomacy) around the world?

Donald Trump’s treatment of Sir Kim Darroch has been abominable. For an American president to attack...

Telegraph firewall in the way but so true!

Oh, and didn’t we explain all of this in detail to you on the Trump thread? Haven’t we been through this debate, as you called it, multiple times before? Do you really need reminding that the job of a diplomat is different to the job of a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent?

What meaning do you put on his post ... Agreement or disagreement with my post .... the point of my post being possible disagreement with our diplomats being the best in the world.

Just because you have taken that same path in this thread from your first post doesn't mean you can blame me.
Suggest a UK ambassador to America is the thread....try to debate Michael Portillo or suggest somebody else.

They are certainly amongst the best and head and shoulders above the rest.

You're argument is pointless if it relies on putting words in other people's mouth.

Maybe you should show examples of every diplomat in every other country being better in every situation.

I made no such claims .... Nobody does.... But I've often heard that apparently ours are the best of the world!
You think to ask for evidence of this makes somebody thick ..... Maybe your blind acceptance without evidence makes you the fool.

Harry and Meghan.

Trump would be so conflicted....wanting to keep in with the royal family but loathing the democrat Meghan.

You did you fool, you tried to tell me what I said. Your words are there for all to see!

My blind acceptance of what? What have I accepted? Again you're trying to put words in my mouth. Maybe concentrate on your own coherence?

You don't care for evidence. You have a complete misunderstanding of the role of the diplomat. You have been told numerous times on the other thread and still you've chosen to bang on about it on a new thread. Your lack of comprehension makes debate with you pointless.

It's a fair bet that this is not the case ; and so it's a fair bet that your post, nay the entire thread, is redundant nonsense.

Sir whoever it is ... Is always the same chap from the same school with the same ignorance in their intelligence .... The British Public have rejected them and their European bureaucratic federal superstate cousins.
Your middle class global communism is dead....

Since when did this British Public of yours make any statement whatsoever about the Foreign Office?


I can only conclude that you are drunk on alcohol, drugs or methylated spirits.
