Following on from the last blog post, Fiona Woolf has now resigned. The perceived conflict led to victims groups saying they had no confidence in the enquiry and at that point her position became untenable. All a bit predictable and just goes to prove that it is the perception of a conflict that destroys trust irrespective of whether there is one or not. One has to question why she took the position in the first place and why the authorities didn’t spot the problem up front. Third time lucky for the Home Office?
