I think ombudman should be given the same powers to investige housing associations and other quango.s as they have to investigate maladministration or illegal activity ,   for  local authorities . If  you live in a housing association property and your service charge suddenly rises more than a hundred percent in one year, you suspect that some thing is not right, possible some thing illegal going on ,who can you turn to ,to check these are bodies acting legally , who are they accountable to?

Why is this idea important?

My idea is all about checks and balances and i suppose    about platforms  We are all accountable to the law ombudsmen are supposed to be up on current laws and correct administration procedures, i think the majority do a good job , so they can make sure other bodies such as housing associations are as well , we need anti corruption  policemen that we the public can turn to with real powers.
