“Government policy is nothing to do with common sense”

I just love how Under Secretary of State (Permanent Secretary ) for Administrative Affairs and later Cabinet Secretary Sir Humphrey Appleby gets away with words:

On conscience; “When did you acquire these taste for luxuries?”, Sir Humprhey asks Principal Private Secretary to the Prime Minister Bernard Wooley

The “Thirteen Million Plus Ringgit” question; do we in Malaysia suffer the same in the hands of ‘Little Napoleans’ like Sir Humphrey?

Remember, this is not about politics and these are not democratically elected public office bearers, but they are very powerful in their domain.
