News today of the Chief Exec of Kensington and Chelsea being "forced to resign". I always think that people like this in the public sector are paid such a lot because they are expected to take the rap when the time comes. The lucky ones manage to see their time through til retirement, but for those unlucky enough to have something bad happen on their watch, they are expected to fall on their sword with good grace.
But these days, as the salaries have increased, they have become more likely to complain about it. Maybe, back ion the day, you went quietly and the "chaps" saw you were all right. Or maybe it was easier to see where the trap holes were, and make sure somebody else was there to fall in.
