This list doesn't include the many Crown Agencies effectively disabled by the inexperienced, inept and/or ideologically driven Conservative "friends" appointed to head them.
The Accountability Act, in fact, serves to remove the traditional partnership between these appointees and the civil servants who actually do the work. Senior bureaucrats used to provide the checks and balances necessary to assure the functioning of the agencies they ran, and ensure some separation between the "politics" and the programs.
Appointees are now required by their political master(s) to be much more "hands-on", which has reduced many agencies to impotence - or worse.
