The Secret Civil Servant: The Inside Story of Brexit, Government F**k-Ups, and How we Try to Fix Things
As Britain jigs daily between political crisis and constitutional meltdown, it's high time we understood what really goes on behind closed doors, from the corridors of Whitehall to the EU negotiating table. The Secret Civil Servant will reveal how Brexit unfolded behind-the-scenes, from the panic triggered by the EU referendum result in June 2016 to the last-gasp efforts to secure a deal in 2018.
It will be a unique insight into the organisation we entrust to enact the will of the British people, exploring the role civil servants have to play in running the country, how decisions made in SW1 have significant consequences for everyone and what Brexit revealed about the cracks in the system.
For fans of The Secret Barrister and Adam Kay's This is Going to Hurt, this witty and shocking account of the inner workings and ineptitude of government sheds new light on an extraordinary political era.
