A hilarious and horrifying account of government amid Brexit chaos

As Britain bounces 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 reveals how Brexit unfolded behind-the-scenes, from the panic triggered by the EU referendum result in 2016 to the last-gasp efforts to secure a deal in 2019.

A unique insight into the organisation we entrust to enact the will of the British people, it explores 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.

This witty and shocking account sheds new light on the inner workings of government during an extraordinary political era.

And remember: civil servants are humans too, you know.

The Secret Civil Servant

The author is a civil servant working for the British government in Westminster, writing anonymously because Theresa May probably won't find any of this very funny.
