Let's face it, the inevitability of someone losing their job sometimes makes the news of it happening seem like more of a relief than anything else. Sometimes they fall on their swords themselves, sometimes, stubbornly, they need a push.
After being given another chance after the previous debacles, after letting millions of people down, after showing a spineless lack of urgency in dealing with the problems in hand and in the way that there appears to be a complete lack of vision, it is only right that "he" goes.
Now as for the "he", please insert the words "Alistair Darling" or "Steve McClaren". Either name fits the description.
