UK Brexit envoy quits, slamming politicians' 'half-truths'

Britain’s Brexit envoy in Washington has quit, saying she no longer wants to “peddle half-truths on behalf of a government I do not trust

Her resignation letter was obtained by CNN, which published it Friday. In it, Hall Hall also accused the Conservative government of “behavior towards our institutions, which, were it happening in another country, we would almost certainly as diplomats have received instructions to register our concern.”

Hall Hall, 55, is a 33-year veteran of Britain’s foreign service and a former British ambassador to Georgia.

The Foreign Office confirmed she had quit but said “we won’t comment on the detail of an individual’s resignation.”
