How Blair spent £6.5billion on 111 busybodies (QUANGOS) -none
of us voted for.
the Daily Mail on Friday the 11th of February, 2005 an
article by their Political reporter Jane Merrick has outlined what must be
the growth of one of the most wasteful and intrusive development of the past
century and a staggering example of the use of power of Patronage. Jobs that
bring wealth to the nation are what are needed.
RISE OF THE QUANGOS
Labour has created at least 111 QUANGOS since coming to
power in 1997 at a
cost to the taxpayer of nearly £6,5 billion a year, a study reveals today.
report underscores suspicions that the Government is obsessed with spending
public funds on bureaucrats who carry out work of questionable value.
last night accused Tony Blair of effectively creating a ‘quango state’ through
the creation of dozens of semi-independent public bodies.
study will cast doubt over whether the government is committed to slashing
unnecessary waste and bureaucracy as set out in the Gershon Review for the
Treasury last year.
research for the Centre for Policy Studies and the Economic Research Council, a
Right-leaning think tank, found that several of those created did the same
work as existing QUANGOS.
The Carbon Trust, created in 2001 to
reduce CO2 emissions
and promote renewable energy has overlapping functions to the Energy
Savings Trust created by John Major in 1993, yet receives £59.5 million of public funds a year.
Similarly the Countryside Agency, set up in 1999 at a cost of £95 million a
year, carries out almost identical work to the Nature and the Environment
A study says:
‘it is not obvious why these three public bodies
with many interests in common should not be merged and rationalised.’
Others have questionable functions, including the British
Potato Council-which has a 60 strong staff and charges potato growers and consumers
to fund research and promote overseas markets.
By far the most costly body created is the legal Service Commission,
which costs £2.1
billion a year.
Since its establishment five years ago, the Commission has
come under fire over its running of the legal aid system, which is routinely
exploited by Asylum Seekers.
There is also a string of Regional QUANGOS, known as
Regional Development Agencies, which come under John Prescott’s department and cost £1.8 billion a year.
Next most expensive are the Scottish Further Education
Funding Council and the National Council for Education and Training in Wales, which cost each £500 million
a year to run
The Study, called The Essential Guide to British QUANGOS
does appear that the Government is preferring to create QUANGOS (as opposed to
the Civil Service) to act as the agent of Government policy. It is not clear that this is efficient.’
The report’s author, Dan Lewis, the Director of the
Efficiency in Government Unit which is co-sponsored by the Centre for Policy
for a public inquiry into the Billions spent on Regional Development Agencies.
Among his ‘nine most useless QUANGOS’ was the
Football Licensing Authority.
‘If a football team can afford to pay £27million for
Wayne Rooney, why should the Taxpayer-not all of whom like football-be forced
to fund the Football Licensing Authority to the tune of more than £1.1million a
year’ Mr Lewis asked.
A five-year limit should be set on executive QUANGOS,
bodies which are created under law and can have powers to fine and run their
Mr Lewis went on: ‘These QUANGOS cost to much money,
have too much power and are really as good as answerable to no one. And I
challenge anyone to say they work for the British Potato Council with a straight
We have really got to do some serious analysis on
whether the cost of these QUANGOS is bringing benefit to the public.’
The Tories have pledged to scrap 162 QUANGOS to
make the running of Government more efficient and accountable.
[What a cheek the Tories have.
It is mainly due to their incompetence in passing EU Treaties like waste
paper in the past-in Edward Heath giving away our Fishing Industry and many
others in the Tory ranks signing away by stealth over 32 years our very Rights
If they wish to talk about efficiency and accountability
then being out of the EU would save
£40,000-£100,000 million a year to the British Taxpayer and that is for
The party’s deregulation spokesman, John Redwood, said he
was delighted with the Council’s ‘lucid guide to the labyrinth of the
‘Their research endorses our policy of destroying
unwanted and unnecessary QUANGOS, and slimming down the rest.
‘Their list of 529 QUANGOS, 111 established under
this government, shows just how massive this activity now is.’
[Wait a moment! that still means that 418 QUANGOS were
in existence when the Tories were last in power - many of them useless entities
-why didn’t they do some pruning themselves?]
He [John Redwood] said slashing
162 QUANGOS was ‘the way to deliver lower taxes and more democracy [So would leaving the EU-
why doesn’t he have a word with his colleague Kenneth Clarke By the way this is the same John Redwood
who during the 2004 EU Election- stated that the eurocsceptic voter must be patient
and that the Tories would in time obtain concessions from Brussels. We heard the exact comments being made at a
meeting over ten years ago].
The Gershon Review last year recommended
significant cuts in public sector bureaucracy.

23rd December, 2007, that the QUEEN now has a website which has footage
of the Royal Family in the past and that the QUEEN is NOT
'Stuck in the past'
Well! as far as many patriotic
subjects are concerned we need to remain in the PAST when it concerns
the protection of our
FREEDOM and COUNTRY.
Change we have had and will continue
to have but it must not threaten our very WAY-OF-LIFE our Common Law of
England and all which makes our country the most unique parliamentary
democracy in the world.
THERE CAN BE NO SURRENDER!
Should the Monarch fail to protect our inherited RIGHTS and
Liberties then we shall have to fight for a REPUBLIC as happened in the
17th century because the Monarch of the day ignored those very
and Liberties of Englishmen' which will still survive in
the English Speaking World today in December 2007. How can the MOTHER of
PARLIAMENTS give away what is already our and our children's
INHERITANCE which cannot be taken away by
PARLIAMENT or the QUEEN.

soften the impact to the population of the BETRAYAL of their

MESSAGE TO HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH
We now learn from the Daily Mail COMMENT
on Christmas Eve that the Queen's Speech will cover the catastrophic
fall in Values and Moral behaviour since the beginning of her 56 -year
reign. This has been brought about by the actions of HER MINISTERS and
the greater number of those in HER PARLIAMENT who have placed THEIR
CONCERNS before the INTERESTS of THE PEOPLE and NATION STATE.
As for the fact that HER PEOPLE feel
LOST that has been the direct result of the actions of HER SUCCESSIVE
GOVERNMENTS and the TRAITOROUS POLITICIANS including PRIME MINISTERS who
have stealthily over the 56 years of HER MAJESTY'S REIGN have almost
achieved their aim of ENSLAVING the PEOPLE to a FOREIGN POWER.
The reason for the marked drop in the
number viewing THE QUEEN'S SPEECH is no doubt because the mass of people
have realised years ago that the MONARCH is powerless to PROTECT their
WAY-OF-LIFE and events up to now have PROVED THEM CORRECT.
There is a well know saying
'Nero fiddled while
it the case on Christmas Day 2007 while the Monarch talks our Rights
and Liberties are being taken from us under our very noses?
course the QUEEN under HER CONSTITUTIONAL ROLE can only 'Advise and
Warn' HER MINISTERS but when the matter concerns the very LIFE of an
INDEPENDENT STATE we expect that HER MAJESTY consider the arrangement to
be AT AN END as it would make a MOCKERY of the PRIME IMPORTANCE of the
MONARCH to protect our inherited Rights and Liberties which HER
MINISTERS are endeavouring TO GIVE AWAY.
We as loyal subjects of the MONARCH who
is the living embodiment of OUR RIGHTS and LIBERTIES ask at this late
stage with only months to the eradication of a FREE NATION STATE some
veiled comments that HER MAJESTY will PROTECT our RIGHTS and LIBERTIES.
As for the MORAL tone of the NATION STATE
at this most crucial time in ENGLISH CONSTITUTIONAL HISTORY this matter
should be left to CHURCH LEADERS who's responsibility it is to CARE for
their FLOCKS particularly at this FESTIVAL of CHRISTMAS.
IF HER MAJESTY'S SPEECH has not been
pre-recorded we ask HER MAJESTY to give those MILLIONS of HER subjects
some hope that their PROTECTOR has NOT FORGOTTEN THEM.
this APPEAL not be answered we can at last confirm that the MONARCHY is
