Whatever Happened To Rowan Laxton?

leave a comment »

Readers will remember the old Foreign Office antisemite, Rowan Laxton, but what wasn’t clear was what happened to him.

I suspect he’s not working out in gyms too often nowadays.

Still, diligently Sam Green at Denry went to the trouble of putting in a Freedom of information request to the Foreign Office, and despite the rather opaque reply from the disdainful mandarins it is fairly clear that Rowan Laxton is working again for the FCO.

I suppose that a bit of anti-Jewish racism is not really an impediment for a career in the British diplomatic service, in fact, if we wait a few years Rowan Laxton will probably be given some gong, ala Sir Humphrey.
