Boris Johnson 'regrets' Sir Kim Darroch's decision to resign

In response to Sir Kim Darroch’s resignation, Tory leadership hopeful Boris Johnson said he regretted the news because “he is a superb diplomat and I worked with him for many years”.

“I think whoever leaked his diptels (diplomatic telegrams) really has done a grave disservice to our civil servants, to people who give impartial advice to ministers.

“I hope that whoever it is, is run down, caught and eviscerated, quite frankly, because it is not right that advice to ministers that civil servants must be able to make in a spirit of freedom should be leaked.

“It is not right that civil servants’ careers and prospects should be dragged into the political agenda.”
