Whistleblowing: why are people still afraid to speak out?

Do you think the IoM Government, and local agencies (Police, FSA, ect; ect) take whistleblowing seriously and protect those who make legitimate disclosures?

You really need to ask?

Unfortunately the whistleblower is probably tainted in the eyes of several people, colleagues, supervisors/managers etc. It usually doesn't take much for everyone to work out who has been involved and despite all the promises of anonymity and security, things always leak out. It's whether you are able to cope with this and crack on, or think it's better to keep your head down and say nothing?

But Ranson won. ( And may end up with a handsome pay out).

 

Doesn't that seem to indicate the system is working?
 

 

Not without trying to discredit all and sundry!

Ranson only got justice because she had the firepower of her Union behind her (and an excellent job they did too).

If you're just Joe Bloggs with no real backup they IOMG machine would crush your case, close ranks and make you out to be the problem.

If you're not trolling then you are the problem.
 

Yours is one of the most seriously disturbing posts I've ever seen.

Not a chance you are going to be dealt with fairly or even listened to. Have first hand experience with a issue and it was dealt with very badly. Also I spoke to a still practising lawyer and they said forget it as you wont find anyone to take the case. It was covered up , the deficit in funds was allowed to be made up by the perpetrator and the Minister and others closed ranks and that was the end of that.

Her husband is a solicitor and she's done this at least once before, so they're very experienced at how to win. Nowt to do with the Union

Dr Ranson’s case was  always very sound.

Despite that, it could have been choked by the heavy, smothering hands of the system in the “usual way”.

The “Usual  way “ is asphyxiation and  attrition- to smother and wear people down, and “make  smoke “- just look at that appalling, devious, rambling drivel  of a denial   letter from  Ashford to PAC.

The catastrophic failure of this system was laid bare by this  tribunal.

It shook ‘ “The Department” to the core.

Good.

Dr Ranson obviously did have great personal resolve and also access to  excellent legal representation.

it was not just down to these strengths that this case was won, it was more to the  dreadful and  serious weaknesses of the system that were exposed as being seriously flawed and humiliatingly idefensible.
