Kim Darroch, Britain’s ambassador to the US, called Trump "clumsy and inept".

Five Points

  1. The YouGov Poll is fairly evenly split, well within the margin of error to conclude much of anything.
  2. Nigel Farage is correct, perhaps for the wrong reasons.
  3. The problem is not the statement by Darroch but the purposeful leak of the statement.
  4. Darroch needed to resign. He was compromised by the leak.
  5. Resignation is the graceful way out, not a firing by Johnson.
