Bit of a ticking off from our glorious leader when it turned out that we were about number eleven on the list of countries called by that ghastly fellow Trump after his election victory. And then we have that nasty little twerp Farage saying its because I was rude about Trumpety. And then blow me down it turns out Farage is the first British politician Trumpety meets with post election . “What on earth is going on?” says the PM in her strictest headmistress voice. “Are you or are you not Her Majesty’s Principal Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs? Why is Trump ignoring us? What’s happened to the ‘special relationship’?” and then to cap it all “How is that everyone is saying Farage is going to be Trump’s go between with Britain?”.
She told me in no uncertain terms that this is not good enough!
I can’t understand how this has happened – all I said before was that Trump was “frankly unfit to hold the office of President of the United States” – what was wrong with that?
Its a tricky thing this diplomacy.
