      I guess the EU will simply withdraw diplomatic status from British diplomats.
      Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

        An admission that the EU is actually a nation state in-waiting? As long as the individual member states (such as they are still states) don't, there's no actual problem. We already have one ambassador in Brussels, we won't be needing a second one. If there are already 27 EU ambassadors in London, why do they want to waste money on a 28th?
        His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

          But they are representing a nation state, which the EU hasn't yet become.

            Perhaps the Uk should also withdraw diplomatic status from UN officials?

              142 countries don't have a problem with it, but of course the UK wants to be eccentric and stubborn

                  Too right. About time someone had the balls to stick two fingers up to them... (until they at least get their Auditors to sign off their Annual Accounts).
                  I was an IPSE Consultative Council Member, until the BoD abolished it. I am not an IPSE Member, since they have no longer have any relevance to me, as an IT Contractor. Read my lips...I recommend QDOS for ALL your Insurance requirements (Contact me for a referral code).

                    I'm not saying it's sensible just observing that the EU is not a nation state. One could say that there should be no diplomats or embassies from any EU states if they are to be represented by the EU appointed diplomat.

                    That would clear South Ken of all those damn Frenchies
