After much pondering, I've begun planning a novel about my time as a tax man working for the government. The characters I met and the general stupidity of management is ripe for lampooning and I'm very excited about the project. The only problem I have is that when taking the job I signed the official secrets act and am not allowed to say what I did, or anything specific. As this novel will be fiction BASED on true events, but without ever specifically mentioning any names, procedures or job sensitive information, does anybody know where I would legally stand? Some things would be mentioned, like a computer system that was due to come in every year but never did, but I don't think I would be mentioning anything that would give any useful insight into how government worked. If anybody is familiar with British law and knows, I would be very grateful.
