Fat cat money wasters to go
I'll be amazed if the Government actually pulls this off, as it is their own babies they are killing. But abolishing and consolidating most of the UK's 1250 QUANGOs would be a good start. Many of these organisations are either morally or in some case actually corrupt but whatever they are they represent the looting of the taxpayer. One Regional Development Agency Chairman spent over Â£50k on Taxis in a year when he works a 3 day week, and its only a thin line to cross to other cases of officials at such agencies taking bribes or deceiving people into paying them money for supposed favours. These organisations started by overreaching their expenses, and the next logical step is quite literally fraud. Time for them to be abolished.
