Tony Redmond, Local Government Ombudsman and Chair of the Commission for Local Administration in England retired on the 11th November 2010.

Rumours suggest that his replacement was selected long ago but no date has been given when they will take up post.
At least they won't be able to pick up any bad habits from their predecessor.
