Howard Brenton on Never So Good

In The Times, David Aaronovitch talks to Howard Brenton about his new play about Harold Macmillan, Never So Good.
Howard Brenton, who once wrote an anti-Thatcher satire provisionally entitled Ditch the Bitch, ended our interview by telling me that Never So Good, far from being a biting attack on the British ruling classes and their disastrous mismanagement of a nation, “is like an apology from my generation, who spat upon...[Macmillan], one of the greatest Prime Ministers we've ever had.”
