    Accountability!! I don't believe it!!

    Reading between the lines - accepted the resignation = resign or be fired.

    He would probably prefer to get his nails done than face that committee meeting/grilling on Thursday...

    On the plus, he'll have lots of time to "build relationships" and play golf now..

    Maybe he could be the first unemployed person, with a manicure, in space?!

    I am actually, genuinely very shocked by this.

    One could say, in the face of the overwhelming stack of "judgement errors" leaning against him that resignation would be inevitable, but of course we know in Ireland that isn't the case.

    Serves him bloody right.

    However, beware, does he pass go and collecte £200? Are there golden handshakes and bonuses to be had?

    Wow, was expecting another round of brass neck. Good to see that its becoming harder to neck it out in the hope of the storm blowing past. Might be a lot of other nervous Directors out there tonight.

    There is only accountability if he is forced to repay the taxpayers money spent on the luxuries he afforded himself while on these junkets.
