Stop giving ex-bankers and party donors important quango jobs they know nothing about!

Like many institutions The British Museum Board members are government appointed. Of the twelve board members I can find two who have any qualifications relating to the humanities such as arts/history/culture. The other ten are all old boys networks or simply well-established members of high society.

While I give them credit in their knowledge of how to run large organisations, the power they wield over the public's access to museum collections is unparalleled. This board refuses to break up their mammoth collection and keeps it hoarded in London. Because London needs more tourism?
