Quangos

Quasi-autonomous non-governmental organization.

Bodies filled by appointment rather than election. In Britain these include Health Authorities, Royal Commissions, the Arts Council, the Audit Commission.

The people who head the most important of these are sometimes known, satirically, as the Great and the Good (see Nomenklatura).
