faceless bureaucrat

Rate this phrase:(0.00 / 0 votes)
A stereotypical anonymous, interchangeable and unaccountable government official.

The desk-killer operates from within a network of other faceless functionaries radiating in every direction and in which the sense of responsibility could be passed along from faceless bureaucrat to faceless bureaucrat with the greatest of ease, as if it is nothing but an item passed along a conveyor belt on a mass-production line.
