The irony might be amusing if it wasn’t affecting me and the people I represent but Lord Hanningfield, the leader of Essex County Council and a man who’s never shed away from grabbing any power that comes within a few miles of him, believes County Councils should have the power to hold quangos to account.

The proposals are interesting, and might be worth discussing, especially if any of the quangos have the power to react in the same way Hanningfield does whenever anyone tries to hold him to account or question him.

Oh, and the first comment on Hanningfield’s post is most amusing too.
