United Kingdom ambassador to European Union quits ahead of Brexit talks

United Kingdom ambassador to European Union quits ahead of Brexit talks”

Mr Gill said the resignations allowed a "pro-Brexit ambassador" to be appointed for the crucial negotiations. The Foreign Office of the United Kingdom indicated yesterday that the diplomat took that decision in order that a successor could be named before the beginning of formal talks with the European Union, scheduled for the first quarter of this year. She chose Barrow, who has paved an extensive career path as a foreign diplomat, most recently serving as the British Ambassador to Russian Federation from 2011 to 2015.

In a statement, a Downing Street spokesperson said: "We are delighted that Tim Barrow is taking up this role".

SNP MEP Alyn Smith said that Rogers resignation was "mild compared to what I've heard privately several times from their United Kingdom officials". "I wish him all the best".

Sir Tim, 52, is now political director at the Foreign Office.

The UK's ambassador to the EU, Sir Ivan Rogers, has resigned.

Gerard Batten, a UKIP MEP, said Mr Farage could use his experience as an MEP to "defend Britain's interests" during the Brexit negotiations. He joined the Foreign Office in 1964, first working in the Western European Department. "We are grateful for his work and commitment over the last three years".

Rogers, who was due to leave his post later this year, resigned to make way for his successor before Article 50 is triggered. "Enough talk, we need to get on with getting out".

British diplomats must challenge "muddled thinking" and "ill-founded arguments" on Brexit, the UK's ambassador to the European Union has said in his resignation letter.

Nick Clegg, the former deputy prime minister and now Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesman, called it a "spectacular own goal" if Sir Ivan had been "hounded out by hostile Brexiteers".

The new envoy, who joined the Foreign Office in 1986 and was ambassador to Russian Federation until previous year, will be central to Britain's negotiations to leave the bloc, which are scheduled to start with the triggering of Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty before the end of March.

"Speaking on LBC, Rogers" old boss Charles Crawford, a former British diplomat, says that Barrow will be a popular choice with the Foreign Office. It is of course vital that there should be no vacuum in such an important role and that the new Permanent Representative should be someone with a strong and distinguished record of service as a diplomat. This would underline a willingness to hear and answer questions put by the House on this and the wider Brexit process.

"Prime Minister Theresa May has spent the summer making sure that Whitehall turned itself round and started to think absolutely in detail about what Brexit means for every government department".

In a resignation note to staff Rogers said London lacked multilateral negotiating experience and urged colleagues to continue providing their expertise even when unwelcome.
