@ William Donelson

The point is if nobody resigns nobody cares if it happens again. The boss is there for exactly that reason in this sort of organization. What other role do you think he has?

Darling can serve no other purpose, what exactly are his expertise in the field? Or any politician in any field for that matter. We are not ruled by experts, it has always been this way, it'll never change. But the non-experts at the top must be punished for systemic failure.

Tony Blair, Ian Blair etc being unpunished does not bode well for the future of the organizations they manage. Profitable and well run organizations are characterized by the opposite, observe US investment banks recently.
