There appears to be a culture among some parts of the Civil Service that avoids action and responsibility. This also happens in big Industrial concerns so to blame the CS for what is, after all, a human failing would be excessive.
accountability is the word i would use,far too many people holding responsible positions in public life seem not to be accountable for their actions,maybe a few job losses would straighten out the situation,particulary among civil servants of the higher grades.
a letter was sent to McNulty and acknowledged by the Junior Minister warning them of this issue and that the Home Secretary 'may want to be informed' - this was sent in Oct 06 and yet nothing seems to have done about it - the Conservatives and Liberals will be baying for blood now!
