"Taking responsibility", Scooby style.
On the Macleans blogs, Paul Wells discusses what it means to "take complete responsibility" for a disaster from the perspective of Liberal strategists by means of comparison to stock Scooby-Doo plots. It's an entertaining read but hardly novel, as resigning and meaning it as opposed to hoping it will be shortly forgotten (David Blunkett, Peter Mandelson) or just plain brazening it out (Harinder Takhar) is the modern way of things. The last resignation on the grounds of taking responsibility I can recall was Lord Carrington for failing to foresee/prevent the Argentine invasion of the Falklands in 1982. Still, worth a look I think.
