Francis Maude has announced the definitive list of those quangos that are to be 'culled' on the basis that they no longer perform any useful function and that, in some instances, can be merged with another body. It is not yet known what will happen to the employees of those quangos culled, whether they will in fact be redundant or just moved to other jobs.
Why stop with quangos? Surely there are other 'bodies' whose function is no longer required or needed? Applying this logic then surely we can dispense with the Houses of Parliament, as it no longer serves any useful purpose in that it is no longer responsible for the laws by which this country is governed.
Issuing P45s to that lot should save the country £455million according to this estimate. After all, in the words of our Dear Leader (Mark II), we are "all in this together", are we not?
