Responds to Michelle Gratton's question about the attitude of Minister's and the ability to give frank and fair advice. Dennis Richardson said "I think public servants who say that are simply cowards, I have never worked for a Prime Minister or for a Minister with whom I have not been able to talk frankly, I've never worked with a Minister with whom I 've not had a disagreement and a few tense moments, the same with Prime Ministers. The odd Minister might not like that for 24 hours or 36 hours but Ministers, politicians generally are very skilled at moving on".
