Abstract

A pro-Brexit minister and MPs have accused the Civil Service of pursuing a 'Remain' agenda. Steve Bullock, a former civil servant, argues that the consequences of undermining civil servants in this way are potentially disastrous. By encouraging distrust in the impartiality of the Service - which has no right of reply - they increase the chances of sliding towards a system like that in the US, where civil servants are political appointees, or one where they can no longer speak truth to power.
