Ambassador Appointments

Asked to comment on the Ambassadorial appointments mentioned today in the papers, the PMOS replied that the FCO had put out a statement, so journalists should speak to them.

Asked by the Evening Standard if we were endorsing the bit that said it was another sign that Gordon Brown was putting his own people in place before he became Prime Minister, the PMOS said that even for the journalist, the question was remarkably loaded. The formal announcement made by the FCO, however, was the part that we endorsed.

Asked who would replace Sir Nigel Sheinwald, the PMOS replied that there was a formal process to be gone through.
