Control of the National Library

What do the websites Cymru ar y We, which seems unable to follow its own rules for content inclusion; and 100 Welsh Heroes, which cost about £150,000 and fiddled the resuls of its online poll have in common?

They're both based in the National Library of Wales and both are overseen by the Librarian of the National Library.

Now the National Assembly is making noises about taking direct control of the Library (which recently made the news over the theft of maps) . Sounds like a good idea to make sure the money is managed a little better.
