Shadow housing minister Grant Shapps has likened our friends at the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment to bacteria drink Yakult
Speaking at the RIBA earlier this week, he suggested CABE may be spared from the Conservatives’ much-hyped, cost-cutting ‘Bonfire of the Quangos’.
Shapps said: ‘Lets call it’s more like a barbecue of the quangos.’
He added: ‘Like bacteria, there are good and bad quangos. CABE might be one of the better bacteria.’
