180 Quangos Face The Axe In Coalition Cuts

Not before time we have a government that is willing to take action to reduce the size of the bloated public sector:

from BBC News:

The Renewables Advisory Board and Museum, Libraries and Archives Council are among taxpayer-funded bodies proposed for abolition.The list, dated 26 August, includes groups linked to all major government departments.

Appointing another tax eater does not help grow the economy it helps grow the deficit.

For thirty years under both Conservative and Labour governments, quangos (quasi autonomous national government organisations) have become the personal bureaucratic empires of ‘special advisers’, failed businessmen, academics in search of a pension fund and clapped out government ministers in search of a peerage Sme of these organisations to a good job but most cost a fortune to run and achieve nothing except the creation of lots of paper for the recycling industry to repulp.

If the coalition can dump a few of them it can only be good. And the tax eaters they employ will cost the nation less on the dole.
