The elephant in the, er, zoo?

Geoffrey Lean at The Telegraph writes about the time he was invited to head up a Quango for licensing zoos. The headline is a rather sensationalised version of what really happened, so don't read as much into this story as the headline seems to want you to!

However it does raise a valid point: what are the criteria used by those seeking heads of Quangos? Knowledge or experience of the organisation's proposed area of activity does not appear to be one of them.
