British Ambassador in Deep Doo-Doo

(hat tip: A Step at a Time)

For committing the worst possible offense that an ambassador can contemplate: giving his frank opinion. The Poles are reported to be livid.

Well, the Poles in government, anyway. The new Polish government seems to have a leg up on the current political dynasties in East-Central Europe, which are every bit as resented by their people as the ambassador's email suggests.

Typically smug, with the characteristically British complete obliviousness to any context other than that of the Brits? You betcha.

Justifiable in spite of all that? You betcha. No wonder the EU slobs, unelected, unaccountable, a "parliament" only in the worst possible "mocking democracy" sort of way, are a bit miffed...
