'Explosive evidence from a Foreign Office whistleblower had painted a picture of the chaos and dysfunction that had hampered the timely evacuation of Afghans back in the summer as the Taliban seized control of the country. We know that former foreign secretary Dominic Raab, who was on the beach as Kabul fell, was furious at the fact he lost his job and sees himself as a terrific diplomat. This, I think, tells the real truth.' Peter Brookes
