Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie, a member of the Commons education select committee said, Sharon Shoesmith should "demonstrate personal responsibility" following the Baby P tragedy.
The MP told Newsnight, "A blame culture is not the same as a culture in which people take responsibility and accountability."
Ms Shoesmith's lawyers argued that she was the victim of ''a flagrant breach of natural justice'' fuelled by a media witch-hunt.
