Number Ten Downing Street and the Cabinet Office are at the apex of power in British government, but relatively little is known about the day to day functioning of these great institutions of state. Drawing on an unprecedented level of access and wide-ranging interviews with former ministers, senior civil servants and political advisers, Patrick Diamond examines the administrative and political machinery serving the Prime Minister. By exploring the ideological beliefs underpinning the policy-making process and in illuminating the importance of the British Political Tradition in shaping the institutions and practice of statecraft, this book reveals the contemporary realities of government and democracy in practice.40 35 30 25205 15100 5 Independent school Other state- assisted or statefunded school Source: Independent Reviewer on Social Mobility and Child Poverty ( 2012) FIGure 8.1 School background oftop 200 civil servants 2010a€“11 Source: Theanbsp;...
