Quibble of the Week: “The Indictment of Cornelius Oswald Fudge”

Our next Quibble of the Week comes from Ben Lamoureux, and he has endeavored to put Cornelius Fudge on trial for his crimes against humanity, and the Wizarding World at large.

Ben argues that Fudge’s inability to provide adequate guard for his wizard prison, his manipulation of the Daily Prophet, and his general failure to heed the warnings of a certain headmaster and boy wizard allowed Tom Riddle to rise again into power, and for the catastrophes which followed to occur.

Truly it can be argued that Fudge did not make the best decisions during his time as Minister of Magic…but what’s your impression of this quibble? What share does Fudge really have in the responsibility for the second Great Wizard War?
