Accountability of public figures no matter how lowly is a rarity in the UK.

I expect no arrests, no charges and no convictions, although I do expect a lot of 'hand-wringing' by the so-called Professionals (always a totally misused term) whilst they all cling on to their jobs.

I suspect though this is endemic throughout society as a whole, honourable resignations are a thing of the past, the philosophy today is to cling on ( la Maria Miller) for as long as possible.

In itself another reflection of the times we live in.
