The Chief Executive and the Board of Directors of public organisations should be personally liable for paying fines or suits against their organisations, and not the taxpayer.

Why is this idea important?

If someone successfully sues (for instance) an NHS hospital, it's the NHSLA that coughs up, and the NHSLA gets its money from taxpayers, who are completely innocent.

Why should we, the innocent, pay, while the Chief Executive and the Board of Directors get away scot free (or with a bonus!!)?  They should pay at least enough of the penalty for it to hurt them personally, because they are responsible and accountable.

Now make them liable as well.
