It was ever thus. There is a problem so something has to change. No problem there, but what is it that has to change? I am reminded of that old adage "Be careful what you wish for"

Should the CEO of the BA be voted in? If so by whom? and how often?. 

If the CEO of the BA should not be voted in but some others should be, then in addition to the above questions add Which ones?

It is inevitable that the CEO of the BA will be unpopular with some people for some reasons but electing someone to the post is not the answer. Ensuring accountability is certainly one way forwards. Financial auditing and comparing that audit with the CEO's job description and the quango's role is another.

To do this means taking on Whitehall, and if you want to do that, watch Yes Minister and Yes Prime Minister first. Dated but frightening none the less.


Not so sure that it's an issue of popularity, rather it's one of trust. In my eyes Dr Packman has accrued an excess of control and needs emasculation. Committee members have to be chosen by those that they represent rather than by the Authority or its CEO. This is a basic and right requirement, just how it could be achieved is the problem though!
