BUMQAs- Disability Rights Commission

Over at The Outside Story there's a new BUMQA nominee- the £15m pa Disability Rights Commission. Mark's moving citation focuses on their new ad campaign (above):

"DRC is an "independent" government body, placing an ad which is clearly designed to lobby government. In fact the DRC claims that one of its jobs is to campaign "to strengthen the law". This is not about raising awareness amongst employers (which might in itself constitute pushing an agenda), this is outright lobbying of voters in favour the government's point of view. £15m quid for government to lobby itself. Surely there are better uses of taxpayers money than this."

Mark, there surely are.
