Every minister has a special adviser who helps with political judgements on decision making. Special advisers work closely with senior civil service officials in policy formulation and implementation.

Special advisers are routinely telling civil servants "You can sort this out when we are gone".

Labour has given up. Let's have an election sooner rather than later if only to make Cameron come out and say what he is actually going to do instead of spouting Blairite rhetoric.

why does a minister need a 'special advisor' -if he or she cannot make decisions based on Civil service help then he or she is not fit for the job
