Top UK Foreign Office Civil Servant resigns

The Permanent Under Secretary for the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, shei1kh, has resigned.

In a statement this afternoon, the now former Civil Servant claimed he was ‘requested to resign’ by senior FCO advisers.

Shei1kh went on to wish the Foreign & Commonwealth Office “good luck” without him, and said that he “can’t wait to see how long it [the UK’s foreign platform] will take to sink”.

This resignation comes following the United Kingdom’s failure to enter the United Nations’ Permanent 5, with even Commonwealth countries not voting in approval of their entry.

The Prime Minister publicly thanked shei1kh and wished him the “best in future endeavours”.
