Flannery's resignation takes the heat off a government tiring of explaining

FRANK Flannery's falling on his sword yesterday came as little surprise. In hindsight, it was probably inevitable from the moment Angela Kerins turned up at the Public Accounts Committee without any member of the board and/or remuneration committee in tow.

It was an extraordinary miscalculation (not Rehab's first).

If a couple of senior board members had accompanied Kerins, the absence of Flannery – who let's not forget left a full-time position in Rehab eight years ago – probably wouldn't have been a major deal.
