Tolerance of incompetence

Ann Marie Hourihane’s article in the Irish Times today is worth a read.  Over the years it has always astounded me how incompetence or corruption amongst politicans, or any person in a responsible position, is excused because they are a nice person, you hear it again and again, ‘but he/she is a really good family man/great mother, has done alot for charity etc ‘ 

We are all nice people, well nearly all of us, however denial is not a valid option for a grown-up, or fair society.
