Who are the most influential unelected people in the country?

The Guardian is trying to compile a list of the countries most influential unelected people.

Anne Alexander, Camila Batmanghelidjh, Russell Davies, Michael Eboda, Georgina Henry and Isobel Larkin have all nominated 10 people each. You can also email your nominations to just make sure you put 'top 50' in the subject field of your email.

My list of the 10 most influential unelected people in the country is:

1. Jonathan Powell, chief of staff, Downing Street
2. Sir Gus O'Donnell, head of the civil service
3. Lord Falconer, Lord Chancellor
4. Baroness Valerie Amos, leader, House of Lords
5. Ian Blair, commissioner, Met Police
6. Mark Thompson, director general of the BBC
7. Rebekah Wade, editor, the Sun
8. Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England
9. The Queen
10. Sir Terry Leahy, chief executive, Tesco
