Cameron’s Office of Budget Responsibility – the quango to trump all quangos

09.28.08 | Comment?

Of course the more serious point about David Cameron’s announcement about an Office for Budget Responsibility to act as watchdog over all public spending and borrowing, is that he is proposing to remove from democratic accountability what is probably the most fundamental function of governmen.

He seek to institutionalise, at a place beyond the reach of the voter, neoliberal methods of economic management which are just now being proven wrong. 

Is he for real?  And does he really think he can get away with this?
