Richard Tice MEP says Darroch should resign after leaked Trump emails
Richard Tice has slammed Sir Nigel Kim Darroch for leaked emails describing Donald Trump's administration as inept, claiming he has 'embarrassed' the UK.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, Richard said: "Our ambassador in Washington has completely humiliated and embarrassed our country by describing and the US president as inept and permanently, serially incompetent.
He added: "You're supposed to make accurate judgements, not subjective opinions...The reality is, he can no longer do his job with any credibility whatsoever.
"This man should have already offered his resignation, the fact that he hasn't, shows that he has no integrity, no moral decency, and he should be recalled with immediate effect."
There are now questions as to whether the British Ambassador to the United States should quit his role after he became embroiled in controversy.
In a scathing assessment of the White House, he said: "We don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept."
President Donald Trump later hit back on Twitter, in a series of explosive tweets in which he said the diplomat was "not well liked or well thought of within the US", adding that the White House "will no longer deal with him".
Despite the controversy, Downing Street has insisted Sir Kim has the Prime Minister's full support and stood by him following the leak.
A Government spokesman said: "We have made clear to the US how unfortunate this leak is. The selective extracts leaked do not reflect the closeness of, and the esteem in which we hold, the relationship.
"At the same time, we have also underlined the importance of ambassadors being able to provide honest, unvarnished assessments of the politics in their country.
"Sir Kim Darroch continues to have the Prime Minister's full support.
"The UK has a special and enduring relationship with the US based on our long history and commitment to shared values and that will continue to be the case."
