Heywood and Kerslake “Prostituted High Office”

A bruising morning for Jeremy Heywood and Bob Kerslake at the Public Administration Committee following their gushing Maggie tribute that infuriated pretty much everyone. Bernard Jenkin led the attack:

Jenkin: Did either of you work for Lady Thatcher?

Heywood: Not very closely

Kerslake: No

Jenkin: Was it (the tribute) cleared?

Jeremy: “It wasn’t cleared….we showed it to Craig as a courtesy.”

Then Paul Flynn stormed out, telling the Civil Service double team: “you’ve prostituted your high office and deserted your political neutrality”. Video to follow…
