ABSTRACT
The article presents comments on the resignation of Minister Margaret Beckett from the British Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). It asserts that her promotion to the Foreign Office can be viewed as a reward for a job well done in DEFRA. It suggests that in time, she must be made accountable for her handling of her department through an enquiry to expose the inadequacies in the system. It speculates that David Miliband probably could not believe his luck in being offered such a challenging position.
