To the very young, schoolteachers, and those who compile textbooks about constitutional history, politics and current affirs, the world is a more or less rational place. To those, on the other hand, with any experience of affairs, these assumptions are merely ludicrous. It is salutary, therefore, if an occasional warning is uttered on this subject. Dismayed to realise what other people suppose to be the truth about civil servants or building plans, the author has tried to provide, for those interested, a glimpse of reality.
