Inside Israel and the Palestinian Territories
On Her Majesty’s Service with a Licence to Blog
Dust off your tired old cliches of British diplomats being either crusty old relics of the Empire or dashing James Bond-types working undercover to keep the world safe.
We are encouraged to learn that modern British diplomats are *gasp* just like you and me.
Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Israel, Tom Phillips, announced today that he will be starting a ‘new monthly, online column’ - which is almost a blog, right?
There’s an e-mail address which I imagine will allow for some reader feedback but no ‘comments’ section at the end of the column, more’s the pity.
But Ambassador Phillips’ new media ‘props’ are not limited to his quasi-blog…this man even has his own Flickr page where you can admire pictures like the one below of him being, well, ambassadorial.
In honour of the Ambassador’s sterling ‘social media’ efforts we have added his column to the blogroll on the right of our page.
