The rewards for incompetence

 The head of the NHS Sir David Nicholson is to step down from his role

Sir David Nicholson.

Jeremy Hunt: "Surprised" at decision.

Allowed to retire. Nice big "Pension Pot". Nicholson should have been sacked months ago.
If anyone failed in their job as much as this person has, any employer would have deemed it to be gross incompetence and summarily dismissed him without pension, pay or reference. He would then have had to argue his case for unfair dismissal at a tribunal. However, with this Tory government, inept and incompetent people in Public positions can retain "Downing Street's full confidence" and in this case the unqualified support of the Health secretary.
It seems that we reward failure and condone ineptitude.
