Why the government can still succeed in digital without Mike Bracken

You only have to look at Twitter to understand how highly he was valued. Tributes rained in from his colleagues and those who have admired the work he has put in to the Government Digital Service and to Whitehall overall - he has been labelled as Britain's most effective civil servant, a visionary and a champion of technology. And because of how highly he is regarded, many are now switching their attentions to the doom and gloom of a government without a leader who really "gets it".
