Hammond Announces Quango Number 18

Philip Hammond gave a speech today outlining how a Tory government will be “Doing More With Less”. He austerely told the audience

Our challenge is two-fold: First to ensure the rapid implementation across Government and the public services of the many efficiency savings that have already been identified, but not effectively delivered. And secondly to embed the process of constant innovation in our public sector to create a culture in which the pursuit of efficiency becomes self-sustaining.

To help me in these tasks, we have decided to establish a Shadow Public Services Productivity Advisory Board…

That will be Tory Quango number 18 by Guido’s count…

UPDATE : Tom in the comments quips “What is this, a slimline quango?”, even the Cabinet Office’s Liam Byrne is laughing, “Philip Hammond is clearly a quango-addict”.

Jacob Rees Mogg writes

“If I had to choose between no deal and Mrs May’s original accord, I would have no hesitation of opting for no-deal Brexit but even Mrs May’s deal would be better than not leaving at all.”
