Two MPs, Simon Danczuk and Tom Watson have been incredibly brave in perusing grave immorality. They have endured threats, ostracism and whispering campaigns, and much more.
Every so often a whistle blower attracts public attention for exposing dreadful happenings. Mostly, they suffer greatly for their efforts.
On a very local and small level, how often do people allow wrong doing to go unremarked or unchallenged because the consequences of reporting or challenging are certain to be unpleasant.
I'm wondering where this bravery comes from? Do members have any examples known to them personally?
And what can be done to encourage and protect those who stand up for what is right?
