Tom Fletcher - the 'Naked Diplomat'

August 25th, 2015

Episode 1103 of 1341 episodes

Britain’s mould-breaking ambassador to Lebanon, Tom Fletcher. Appointed at only 36 at the height of the Arab uprisings in 2011, Fletcher calls himself the ‘Naked Diplomat’ – a title that suggests a new brand of 21st-century statecraft: flexible, transparent, engaged with the public as much as with political decision-makers.
