Editorial comments:

Kelvin Mackenzie was then editor of The Sun. He had opted for an off the reord interview over an on record one, to Ingham's amazement. Parts of the interview on 'lifestyle' were finally agreed to be on the record. Read all documents from the 1989 release of MT's party and personal papers.
