An investigation into the menu at GCHQ has criticised the lack of ethnic dishes in the canteen. The head of the civil service says a lack of specialist dishes like Tandoori and Thai Red curry is hampering the fight against terrorism. The report recommends better engagement with ethnic minority dishes and improve the image of the organisation.
The director of communications at GCHQ said the organistation had "long recognised that the specialist and traditional nature of our lunches have made it challenging to develop a menu which represents the diversity of the UK population and so win the war on terror". 'All our food has been vetted'.
The head of the civil service wondered 'How they can cope without a good kedgeree? Visiting civil service staff would feel impoverished at the meagre fare of traditional fish and chips and shepherds pie when they have become accustomed to a world cuisine'.
