In this episode, we discuss the downfall of the Ministry of Magic. Enjoy!
- It was Fudge's fault! He refused to take Dumbledore's advice and didn't send envoys to the giants, release Azkaban from the dementors, or start increasing security. Fudge was in denial, and wanted the 'perfect world' to remain forever, which was why he was doomed to mess the whole thing up.
- When did the rot start? In my opinion, the very beginning was in Prisoner of Azkaban when Fudge wants to bring the dementors into Hogwarts, which Dumbledore is very much opposed to. They have a bit of a disagreement, which paves the way for Dumbledore and Fudge's relationship to take dive later on. It is this that allows Fudge to think Dumbledore is out of his mind in thinking Voldemort is back, so Fudge refuses to believe it.
- Who could have been a better Minister? In this case, I think McGonagall would have been the perfect person for the job. She is in Dumbledore's inner circle, meaning the Ministry and Hogwarts could have been on very good terms and work together for once. This would also mean Dumbledore has an in with the Minister, it being McGonagall. Dumbledore could advise and suggest bills to pass and measures to take.
- Much More!
