Being a Special Adviser - How to build the right relationships

"Resist the temptation to go a bit 'Malcolm Tucker'. Work well with private office, civil servants and with Parliamentary Private Secretaries, junior ministers and fellow special advisers. They can make it a lot easier (or harder) for you to get things done."

"Be nice to the civil service, but don't be too nice."

(Former Special Advisers)
