Excellent discussion. Be sure not to miss the posts that preceded this, which includes this observation (one that members of the Blognabbit staff have repeatedly - yet informally- noted):

"I don't know what British law is, but I gather that Sir Topham Hatt's behavior could potentially be construed as criminal neglegence in other jurisdictions — e.g., France and Italy, where inquests into possible criminal charges stemming from transportation disasters are carried out concurrently with NTSB-style technical investigations."
