This book engagingly presents an intriguing account of many of the principles of UK government politics and how these have an important bearing on everyday office life as experienced by the working population. Here is a fascinating account of the findings of two former Cabinet ministers—Lords Blunkett and Baker—who were interviewed by the author. The overriding aim is to analyze the nature of 'politicking' in central government and to apply the techniques and lessons of national politics to everyday office life. The author shows how Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair initially supposedly gave Baker and Blunkett considerable scope in introducing reform. He goes on to explain how the two peers give their critique on policy-making against a background which is of definite benefit to white collar office workers.
