The Honourable

The Honourable

What goes on behind the closed doors in the Cabinet? Stephen Cadiz talks with candour, humour and humility about the world of the neophyte government minister, who must leave behind the straightforward pragmatism of the businessman for the lobbying and jockeying of the politician, or, as he puts it, the ‘hacking through tall grass’.
