In this time of Budget crisis, does the state need yet another useless, answering to politicians, department? I think not!
Only when the ombudsman is seperate and not payed by the state can it truely be the voice for the people.
I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.
