Bean counters an endangered species?
Great reforming news: the Audit Commission gets dumped- completely!
We are spared more inane claptrap such as:
"This draft strategic plan aligns with the Commission's diversity scheme Value for all, which focuses on the relationship between equality and diversity and achieving more for less. Well-designed, efficient, value-for-money services recognise that, while everyone has the same basic needs, if services are to be effective, some people need them to be delivered differently. They may also need help to locate and use them. Failure to understand and address this issue can lead to poorly designed services that are ineffective, often costing taxpayers more in the long run."
We searched their site with the phrase "cost of audit commission" and didn't get one direct response. But who on earth will want to hire 2000 institutionalised jobsworths?
Maybe Alex Salmond's Socialist People's Republic of Scotland ?
We bet this has put the wind up a lot of Brown's old fiefdoms; send for the next sacred socialist cow, please!
