Phil Wheatley to retire

I think this is true but apologies if it's not. Phil Wheatley, the Director General of NOMS has announced his retirement for some time in the comming year.

I met him once- although I doubt he remembers- bizarrely, we ended up having a pint together in Gonville and Caius bar (he paid!). He seemed like a nice guy who did want things to change- we talked about the probation service mainly and he said he was committed to cutting paperwork. He didn't have any ideas as to how but then, to be fair, neither did I when he asked me!

Does anyone have ideas on an ideal successor and what recommendations would you give him?
