I shouldn’t have to remind anyone based in the UK of the appalling fiasco of the Post Office’s flawed IT system called ‘Horizon’ that led to many of the Post Office’s subpostmaster employees being falsely accused, and often convicted, of stealing money from their sub-Post Office business accounts. The damage to individuals has been life changingly catastrophic. At least one suicide resulted.
Now that their collective legal challenge has finally won through, and that they can expect some form of financial compensation, the management of the Post Office at the time need to be seriously considered for prosecution on account of their awful, wicked behaviour throughout.
One woman was the chief executive who oversaw all of this and the subsequent cover-up. She’s also an ordained priest, but her moral convictions didn’t extend to offering her employees the benefit of the doubt, and didn’t prevent her from apparently telling fibs to a lot of people. She even got awarded a CBE for her ‘services’ to the nation. She’s a disgrace, and in my opinion ought to go to jail for this. There’s a petition trying to start the process by removing her gong.
