"Quangos were invented in the 1960s but not much used until the Thatcher administration saw them as a means of downsizing government and reducing ministerial meddling. They have blossomed since causing the Coalition to make big claims that they would cull their number and their costs. As we now know, what the Coalition says and what it does may not always match."
