UK Foreign Office’s Most Photogenic Member Palmerston to Retire as Chief Mouser

On August 6, the FCO’s Chief Mouser announced that the time has come for him to retire and spend time away from the limelight. Although Palmerston did not write a valedictory despatch, he did have a nice farewell letter complete with paw marks.
This announcement comes following a report that his boss, the Foreign Office’s Permanent Under Secretary Sir Simon McDonald is also set to retire early after “the prime minister signaled he wanted someone new to head the ministry when it merges with the Department for International Development”, according to Sky News.
Farewell @DiploMog, may you enjoy your best life yet in the countryside.

We did ask State/OIG about this because well, somebody was too shy to ask. Below is the response we got that we’re passing on as there were other posts also inspected in 2018:

“The report addressing our inspection of Embassy Nassau is in progress. [W]e anticipate that it will be published this summer. For background, all of our Fall 2018 inspection reports were delayed due to the shutdown.”

The Daily Démarche: Diplocat Worries That Nuclear War Is Just One Tantrum Away

We’ve decided that we’re going to be a t-shirt designer when we grow up … well, unless we get blown up intentionally or accidentally before then. So for today and every Wednesday until you know … a new design obsession for the Daily Démarche. This one features a black and white cat worried that nuclear war is just one tantrum away. Nah, this isn’t about Trump’s nukes or the reported bigger button. Or about the guy who grabbed them by the meow meow and … pardon me?  No, no, just a really worried kitty expressing ALARM!   Look at these sleepless eyes!  Appropriate apparel for cat people and, well, the rest of humanity against nukes. Also would make a blasted fantastic but dark gift for the 535 elected representatives in Congress.  Available via Amazon in five sunny colors for a limited time because dark colors would be so wretchedly grim, right Jeff? What? We shouldn’t give up our day job yet?
