Apologies for the silence.

I'm trying to work out, as someone about to be bereft of job, what I could have done that would have averted my current position.

And the anwer is: nothing.

My job was fundamentally undoable.
People I believed more capable are now doing my job and finding it as hard, if not harder, than I was.
My (newer, more capable, replacement) boss is not able to find a chink in the armour of what I was up against - and she's got far more power than I have.
My staff are still fighting the same battles that I was fighting 6 months ago. Plus ca change.

I know this isn't unique, but at the moment it feels very crystallised.

And I know there are others out there who have been similarly treated.
