YOU report (News, March 11) the resignation of the chief executive of the Belfast Health and Social Care Trust. This is the latest in a series of resignations of top-class public servants over the last 12 months, or so.
This is worrying and we must ask ourselves: why? May I suggest it is in no small measure due to the incessant negativity that pervades our public life? Examples:
– a local media which ignores success and focuses disproportionately on problems
– politicians who achieve little
– an increasingly politicised Northern Ireland Audit Office.
