The Bureaucratic Response

How Societies Commit Suicide by Theodore Dalrymple 

"In an effort to ensure that no Muslim doctors ever again try to bomb Glasgow Airport, bureaucrats at Glasgow’s public hospitals have decreed that henceforth no staff may eat lunch at their desks or in their offices during the holy month of Ramadan, so that fasting Muslims shall not be offended by the sight or smell of their food. Vending machines will also disappear from the premises during that period .Apparently the bureaucrats believe that the would-be bombers were demanding sandwich-free offices in Glasgow hospitals during Ramadan. "

This seems to be a familiar pattern everywhere.The bureaucratic response is exactly the same at all the places .As though there is an unseen bond between the bureaucrats’  communities  of all countries. Whatever may be the merit of the underlying action by a group of people which necessitated such a response there is a ridiculous non-application of mind in formulating the response which is a feature cutting across all national borders.
