Yep. Effectively sacked by Johnson on the orders of Trump.

Well, he's just resigned now anyway.

Or "resigned".

Civil Servants Union

Sir Kim Darroch has been placed in an impossible situation, firstly by the leaking of confidential communiques and then by the failure of Boris Johnson and his supporters to provide unequivocal support.

As a loyal public servant he has, as he always did, put his country first. Can we honestly say that about those who took to the airways and equivocated? Johnson and his allies have sent the clearest signal possible to Sir Kim, the diplomatic corp, the wider civil service and unfortunately to foreign governments: that their professional, impartial advice is needed, but they are ultimately expendable if it proves politically expedient.

It’s actually amazing just how quickly Leavers can flip while pretending their previous position didn’t exist.

2016: “Let’s have Parliamentary sovereignty!”
2019: “Let’s prorogue Parliament so we can get our own way!”

2016: “The unelected EU shouldn’t decide our trading terms!”
2019: “Let’s use WTO rules!”

2016: “Obama should not interfere with British politics!”
2019: “Let’s let Trump handpick our ambassador!”

2016: “British courts should decide British laws!”
2019: “Judges are traitors!”

2016: “We hold all the cards against the EU, we will get the best terms and will have a wonderful deal!”
2019: “We voted for No Deal!”

2016: “Britain is a strong nation that can make its own way in the world!”
2019: “The EU bullied us!”

Isabel Oakeshott is completely poisonous and very plugged in to the Johnson/Brexit/Farage/Banks network.

And she's on the BBC all the strawberry floating time.

I’m convinced, if we were industrialised in 1819 then leaving the EU in 2019 is a great idea.

A better person than me was trying, I chipped in where necessary. Despite the tidal wave of information, facts and evidence that came his way he still would not budge. :fp:

"They say we can't feed ourselves but they keep making us build roads over farmers fields so that's the problem!" WTF?

I don't even know where they get some of these "arguments" from these days, seems like any string of random words can be used as a reason for leaving these days.

You can not reason someone out of a position they were not originally reasoned into.

This.

They started all this by telling us how brilliant it would be. Now they are claiming victory if we manage to barely survive.

It’s a cult.

Anyone who claimed they knew what brexit would entail back then is full of gooseberry fool. We know more now, and on that basis, it's only right to ask people again.

People saying we knew what Brexit meant as it was in the leaflet sent out by the government before the vote, when they were calling it a pack of lies before the vote. Grrrr.

Of course the Vote Leave leaflet clearly stated that we’d negotiate a deal before leaving.
