A Thatcher aide on why Sir Kim had to go


JOHN O’Sullivan CBE is a British conservative political commentator and journalist. During the 1980s, he was a senior policy-writer and speech-writer in 10 Downing Street for Margaret Thatcher when she was prime minister, and remained close to her up to her death.

Here he discusses l’affaire Darroch in the National Review. He says that Sir Kim wasn’t guilty of anything heinous, but he had to go, and the attacks on Boris Johnson for saying as much were misguided.
