Petition successful

Well, the Currant Bun has got it's way and Ms Shoesmith has been sacked. My understanding is that she offered to resign, was told not to, and then Ed Balls sacked her live on TV. Lovely stuff.

There's a gloriously long unreadable post to be written about how the cathartic sacking of a few named officers does little to solve a problem, but seeing as I have family working reasonably close to this case, I better keep my trap shut.

Here's a very good post by Anthony on populism and good judgement though. Only tangential, like.....

I still think it would have been better if they'd taken her out and shot her.
Pour encourager les autres, of course.
