Newport City, of whom I have just become aware (good blog) has a thingy-watsit on quangos, those boondoggle-junketing ways in which stalinists money-launder taxation-receipts out of the system, towards themselves personally, without the dosh actually having had to do anything even vaguely useful on the way.
You could say it’s a kind of streamlining of the Stalino-Fascist system, according to the conclusions of “management” “consultants”. It accelerates money, faster down its conentration gradient, while also widening the channel for it to fall down (into the pit of nothingness) and also while causing it NOT to be diverted into channels labelled things such as “education”, “health”, “infrastructure projects”, and the like.
The post referred to states 61 pages of quangos. I recall that Michael Ivens, in the early 80s or late 70s, produced a similar document, but I can’t find my copy.
Also there are no wiki refs to Michael Ivens or Aims of Industry. Anybody want to write some?
