"We don't really believe this Administration is going to become substantially more normal", Darroch wrote, according to the newspaper.

"The leak is absolutely unacceptable and, as you would expect, contact has been made with the Trump administration setting out our view that we believe that it is unacceptable", he said.

Senator Lindsey Graham reacted to his resignation today by blaming the media.

In his confidential memos dating from 2017 to the present, Darroch had said reports of in-fighting in the White House were "mostly true" and last month described confusion within the administration over Trump's decision to call off a military strike on Iran.

Peter Ricketts, a former head of the U.K. Foreign Office and a former ambassador to France, tweeted that Darroch had "been taken out by an act of political sabotage".

"The Prime Minister, Foreign Secretary and whole of the public service have stood with you: you were the target of a malicious leak; you were simply doing your job".

Britain's ambassador to Washington quit on Wednesday after days of stinging criticism from Donald Trump, leading to accusations that Boris Johnson, the favorite to be the next British prime minister, had "thrown him under the bus".

"I am extremely angry that a good man has been brought down by a awful leak of highly classified documents and by a president as vindictive and spiteful as Kim Darroch said he was in his highly classified communications".

Despite being loaded on offense, the Cardinals have been inefficient in 2019 and rank near the bottom-10 in runs and home runs. Louis has title-winning pedigree and are loaded offensively, but thus far simply haven’t delivered consistent results.

"I think a lot of us feel very angry about the way that this has turned out", says Tom Fletcher, a former government adviser on foreign affairs and ambassador to Lebanon.

While May gave her full backing to Darroch, her potential replacement as prime minister, Borish Johnson, declined to explicitly support the diplomat and instead emphasized the need for maintaining good ties with Washington.

The Cabinet Office has launched an investigation into the matter, he added. A disaster! I don't know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool.

But he said the trans-Atlantic relationship was "so deep and so wide that it will withstand any individual squall".

Speaking after Darroch's resignation, Johnson said he hoped whoever had leaked the cables "is run down, caught and eviscerated". He also said he feared there might be more leaks of sensitive government documents.

James O'Brien asked how Sir Kim Darroch's resignation after being hounded out of his job has been the United Kingdom regaining our sovereignty.

Sir Alan, another Hunt supporter, said Mr Johnson was an "utter wimp when the crunch comes when he should be making a stand". It underscored that the close relationship between the two countries has become increasingly lopsided - a severe problem at a time the country is preparing to set out a new path with its departure from the European Union.

Below is a timeline of events leading up to the ambassador's resignation.
