Been quango'd?

21st August 2009 at 01:00

The CPS says it wants to make economies in education by cutting down the number of quangos.

While having some sympathy with that proposal, I would argue that further economies could be made by cutting down on the number of so-called think- tanks - especially ones such as the CPS.

These are the education equivalent of the Crown Prosecution Service and which invariably attack, rather than defend, state education.
