Private commissioners, public funds…

While I abhor the idea of an unelected quango of commissioners, appointed by an NIO minister, sitting in private session on any issue, never mind education services, the stalling tactics by the elected representatives on the Southern South Eastern Education and Library Board before the appointment of the replacement Board, and their subsequent complaints after the fact, doesn’t generate much sympathy from me either.. The fact that neither side appears to be able to state clearly what the actual position is, in relation to their budget, doesn’t exactly help matters.
