I'll need to update my Christmas joke list.

Yes, the US will survive, but will never be the same again.

The suspicion must be that its a Brexiteer who dunnit, revenge on professionals doing their best for the country both at home and abroad.
We've been repeatedly told that there is pressure from the Brexiteers to make Nigel Farage the ambassador in Washington.
I can't see it working, quite honestly - even Boris Johnson surely knows the danger of turning our Foreign Office into a political arena and handing out ambassadorships to political appointees, big donors etc.
And Nigel Farage, despite being an elected MP (on the EU system, a "party list" with himself at the No 1 position) has repeatedly failed to win a seat in the House of Commons (first past the post in a constituency vote) and been shunned even by the "Leave" campaign and Tory MP Brexiteers.
President Donald Trump has found a trade fight he doesn't like.Read more from MSN
I absolutely agree.
The leak will be narrowed down to at least an office, I imagine.
The developments about Iran and Trump's decision to spite Obama is unsettling, but sadly not surprising.
The man would let the world burn if Obama was opposed to it.
That's good for us.
I just wish we could get past our fears and start our own nuclear power program.
