GOVERNMENT EXPLAINED

The Civil Service and Politicians
THE INSIDER STORY


Nobody has the capability to laugh at themselves like the BRITISH.

This incredible but true depiction of how government works - or is prevented from working - is unique in many ways. The actual stories are mainly true, from information gained from insiders - high ranking officials, the others could well be true but are not confirmed .....

Having read my foregoing articles on how government WILL be run in the future, regardless of opinions to the contrary (I too have 'insider information'!!) it is time for you to relax a little and contemplate on how best to avoid these situations from happening in the future - did I get the right resolutions to the problem? - and smile at the incredible workings of the human mind, which continue to this day ..............

Here is a guide to that wonderful series on POLITICIAN SPEAK (or NOSPEAK .....): "Yes, Minister" and "Yes, Prime Minister" .....

First broadcast in February 1980 (nothig much has changed in the meantime!)
