Goofy Bureaucratese

Interview with Jeremy Browne MP, Minister of State, UK, by the Bangkok Post

Question: British citizens in Thailand are concerned about the high fees charged by the Embassy for routine services. Why is the fee for passport renewal 150 pounds in Bangkok and only 77 pounds in London?

Answer: The Thai government helped to keep our staff safe during the red shirt protests for which we are very grateful. It was a difficult time for everyone and one of our primary concerns was for the safety of not just our staff but our customers too.

it’s really weird how bureaucrats appear always to have a script and all questions whatever they are become opportunities to read from the script.
