sad that a young person is gone.

sad that an american diplomat's wife is the cause.

sad that "diplomatic immunity" can extend to a wife.

what a sad mess.

....yup, they asked for revocation but that rarely happens, so she will get away with it......

That’s what happens when everybody in the whole country drives on the wrong side of the road except for the occasional foreigner.

After 40+ years driving on the right, things like this story are reasons I will choose not to drive myself in the UK or other left-hand driving countries if I visit them. Too many reactions would be wrong at this point.

As for the diplomat, his career is probably going to be limited going forward in time. He will not be able to be stationed in many countries with his family, as many will not grant entry to his wife under a diplomatic passport as long as this case stays open.

Trump declined the request from Boris Johnson to waive diplomatic immunity.

He said it is difficult to drive on the other side of the road and that "we've all done it".
