One thing that is certain (well in my opinion anyway) is that Whitehall’s answer to Belle de Jour - Civil Serf (I would obviously link to it but it has been taken offline today!), will lose her job when the MI5 Spooks can actually find out who she is!! She claims to be a 33 year old fast stream civil servant, and Whitehall seem to have established that she is who she says she is because of the information she gives out in the blog! She began posting last November, saying that, " ..I’m just senior enough in my department to really know what’s going on." Then she made a slight miscalculation, "Fortunately for me I’m not senior enough to attract suspicion from my blogging" - how wrong you were!!!!! They have been very aware of the blog and have become increasingly disgruntled at the content she has been posting.
Last week she wrote in her blog, "knowing my luck it (my blog) will get me fired!!" Well it seems they have found her because her blog has mysteriously been taken down today!! So I am guessing she will joining the list of the unemployed tomorrow!
Motto of this story - be very careful about writing about your employer, especially if it is the British Government!!
