It has been reported that the crossing keeper was asleep on the job. He has been arrested and the Egyptian Railways Chief Exec and the Transport Minister have tendered their resignations. If only our politicians and business leaders were as ready to fall on their swords.

Can't really see the point in the resignations. Serves no purpose other than sating the publics lust for blame. All it does is interrupt the continuity of command in something as vital as the railway. The crossing keeper will no doubt be done for manslaughter or somesuch, as he no doubt should be, but to hold those at the top responsible for someone's failings at the pointy end seems somewhat harsh.

I think it might be political on a grand scale in the new Egypt those in charge are responsible. If you get money for being in charge of everybody else their failure is your failure, to motivate,to lead or to model the performance you expect.
