Destroy the Quangos

leave a comment »

A must read for today

Dennis Sewell says that Cameron cannot govern unless he destroys the Quangos.

Over the Labour years these groups have swelled from an irritant into a state within a state. With 700,000 employees and boards that read like a who-was-who of the Blair/Brown era, the quangos will represent Labour’s stay-behind fifth column. Not only are the quangocrats implacably opposed to the Conservatives’ reform programme, but they are better placed than even the wiliest Sir Humphrey to thwart change and mount a guerrilla insurgency against public spending controls.

If he intends to roll back the state and has a mandate for change, there really cannot be a better place to start.
