Leaked US ambassador’s summary of UK government mainly just laughing emojis
A recent leak revealed that the UK ambassador to the US thinks Donald Trump is a blundering, incompetent dunce. In other words, he thinks what everyone – who isn’t a prominent Tory – already thinks.
But what does the US ambassador to the UK think of our leadership? A fresh leak has revealed exactly that.
The leaks cover a period from 2017 until just yesterday. One of the earlier ones sees the ambassador Hoagie Skunktwerks saying:
It’s difficult to explain how badly this general election is going for Theresa May. A friend described it to me as a drunk ballet dancer trying to pirouette on an oil slick. That’s close, but you also need to imagine the oil being on fire.
The post-election communique read:
A later message said:
Jumping Jesus, she’s made Boris Johnson the foreign secretary! At least I think she made the decision. It’s not clear who’s actually in charge. Oh – and if you don’t know who Johnson is – imagine if an idiot and a scarecrow had a baby, and it was raised by an aristocratic polar bear.
The most recent one said:
Theresa May just resigned? Didn’t she resign months ago? It’s difficult to keep up with these people. She’s certainly not done much leading in a while. But anyway – now the leadership contest begins. They’re going to be queuing up to kiss our asses; I’m going to go get my mine waxed and bleached in preparation!
As idiotic as Trump is, the UK isn’t doing much better. It’s barely even doing the same. It might even be doing worse.
And let’s face it – if there’s one man who can out-incompetent Trump, it’s Boris Johnson.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
