What is going on? Someone has fallen on their sword.

A senior government official falls on his sword over a breach of security. Read here about the HM Revenue and Customs chairman resigning because of a breach of data security.

Personally I'm not always in favour of this falling on your sword. Particularly when the rules have been broken by an employee as it appears in this case. I hope the decision makers, unlikely to be the chairman, involved were sacked as well.

But it is refreshing to see a senior figure go over such a minor, in real terms, issue. Nothing like having your team assassinating innocents for example.

Hope it spreads though. There are quite a few out there that actually do deserve to lose their jobs. Starting with Gordo, everyone he knows and works with, almost all our MP's, except for maybe one or two, the Met commissioner, Blair, ...... What exactly is the maximum length of a Blogger post?
