Well there are limits as to what a diplomat can get away with.

As I recall Q said in Moonraker; 'I think he's trying for re-entry, sir'.

Perhaps he should have used the first Ads by Google link at the bottom of the page instead...:-)

"The FCO ................ takes all allegations of inappropriate behaviour seriously. "

How is this inappropriate?

The guy is 37 years old and divorced.

Are unmarried British diplomats expected to be celibate?

I would expect the FCO to come over all prim and huffy if this had been gay sex, but it wasn't.

But leopards, as they say, never change their spots and you should note the particular country involved.

Are unmarried British diplomats expected to be celibate?

No, but they are almost certanly required to get any 'partners' security checked before engaging in any 'liasons'. The fact that he's been caught out demonstrates why.

'liaisons', even

"Short time" with a prostitute is hardly a liaison.

In fact, from a security point of view far better than forming a long term relationship with a local girl or even another diplomat.

Well, what a surprise! Do any of us really trust our so called elected representatives and civil servants?

Not if you have a scrap of sense. What makes me laugh is that Russian spies were able to film him, I'm suprised he isn't "This weeks hit" on Youtube
