Quote of the day 18th June 2021

"Yes, Minister was a hit with the public because they enjoyed it as a comedy and with politicians because they knew it was closer to a documentary."


Stephen Daisley, from an article which you can read here calling for more effective scrutiny of the Scottish government.

He has a point - everyone with whom I ever discussed "Yes, Minister" and "Yes, Prime Minister" who was anywhere near the workings of government agreed that if people knew how much truth there is in  that programme they would not be laughing but horrified.
