Quango future

Have your say

I read that FETA (Forth
Estuary Transport Authority) is to be disbanded and replaced by a government-appointed forum, meeting in private.

So an authority with a democratic remit is being 
replaced by a quango, reporting, if to anybody, to a nameless bureaucrat with little in the way of auditable accountability. Is this the future for Scotland? A highly centralised, closed governance system of rule from a Salmondist regime?
