Antony Jay, RIP

A very interesting man

Antony Jay was the co-creator of Yes Minister and the author of several books, including Management and Machiavelli. Here is his description of the anti-Establishment bias at the BBC:

“We were not just anti-Macmillan,” he wrote of his experience. “We were anti-industry, anti-capitalism, anti-advertising, anti-selling, anti-profit, anti-patriotism, anti-monarchy, anti-Empire, anti-police, anti-armed forces, anti-bomb, anti-authority. Almost anything that made the world a freer, safer and more prosperous place, you name it, we were anti it.”
