When Labour were in power I held the same view. I don't believe in this knee jerk minister must resign. If that minister made a bad decision sure but most of the time the failures are by the civil servants at a much lower level. They should be accountable for their failures.

I wonder how many civil servants end up with a knighthood whilst a minster is sacked for their mistake.

Yes, it"s just ping pong mate, although i think she has been very lucky to get where she is at, given her past, a priti face opens doors, especially to a full blooded male like boris.(see what i did there? Priti face?

Unless she was personally involved no. I would sack the civil servant who approved the design of the system that meant there was no backup for accidental deletions.

Unless of course that civil servant suggested that such functions were needed and was over ruled by a minister or SPAD on the grounds of cost etc.

Civil Servants are easy to take a pop at as they can't answer back. But ultimately they serve the government of the day and are tied by the decisions taken by ministers or their paid assistants

Funny you should say that. The convention of collective responsibility used to mean the elected boss fell on the sword. Now they will find a suitable civil servant to take the blame.

Different times I guess

Not too low a level if you donít mind! Many Senior Cuvil Servants get knighted, politically motivated now ( despite what some on here think) even more, at all levels get some sort of gong but you have to have brown nosed for years.
Answering the point about computer systems, CS renowned for doing things on the cheap

Indeed or by SCS who know very little about the Department and who then move on

Some Senior Civil Servants and the aspiring SCS are focused on their careers and brown nose their way into the affections of Ministers and SPADS. It's always been the quickest way to get promotion and prevalent across the service. Have no doubt Priti has her own set of 'groupies' who will smooth the path for her.

1. Agreed then she should go if that was the case as she had intervened and made the wrong decision. Mistakes happen I am not actually blaming the individual who deleted the records unless it was deliberate.

2. This keeps coming up about Civil Servants not allowed to answer back. How is it any different from working for a private corporation. I worked for a bank we were not allowed to talk to the press without approval and if you did you were far more likely to be sacked I know someone this happened to.

If the CS has been treated unfairly they have recourse to law like anyone else which is why a senior CS is going to an industrial tribunal soon on another matter and the press will no doubt have a field day.

Agreed it was the convention, that doesn't mean it was right people need to be accountable for their decisions. They are happy to take the salary and the kudos that comes with the job. You say that CS are scapegoats how many actually are fired for bad decisions?

They always have recourse to law if they get treated unfairly.

This is a move against her from (probably) inside the Civil Service. As others have said you don't just 'lose' data and the notion that there are not mirror systems and so on is ludicrous.

 


Now on GAB @Matov. Come and help build something.

They must backup data all the time.

Unless she pressed the button then why should she walk?
It is about time that the Civil Service were held accountable and sacked for their ridiculous errors be they by accident or deliberately.
Ministers being held accountable for something outside of his/her control has always been a stupid move and gives politically motivated publicly paid officials the opportunity to screw someone.
To delete this lot by accident would be some feat!
