LOST IN QUANGOLAND!

By ATWadmin On December 5th, 2006

Wonder what you make of the fact that Northern Ireland Children’s commissioner’s budget is £1.9m per year, while his salary is £75,000. In comparison, for larger populations, the annual budget of the Welsh commissioner’s office is £1.2m and his salary is £70,000-75,000. The Scottish commissioner has a budget of £1.5m this year and £1.2m thereafter. She earns £72,000. The English commissioner’s budget is £3m. He earns £130,000. While the NI children’s commissioner spends almost 2 million a year producing trite nonsense like this and keeping the quango-class in jobs the NI children’s hospice receives no statutory funding. It is indeed a National Disgrace. I loath the quango-class which infest Northern Ireland, these empty-heads populate all the various Government-appointed boards and they contribute little of any value.

Hat-tip to the eagle-eyed ATW reader for the story!

  1. So Niccy found that that three quarters of young people interviewed had £10 a week to spend and about 33% had £20….Hmmm. How does that chime with their reports on child poverty?

  2. Well if three quarters of kids (75%) had £20 pocket money and 33% had £10 it cetainly doesn’t chime with mathematics. That total adds up to 108%. ??? Are we meant to take this kind of drivel as if it were Holy writ? Shocking indictment of the level of ability of the quangocrats at NICCY.
