If he is such a dick that he can't be accommodated then he should never have been brought back. But they knew we'd have no chance in India without him. Now that we've lost The Ashes it just seems a convenient scapegoat.

Hope its a PCB-esque retirement and KP is back within an year
Get well soon Yuvi!!
If the Aussies can accommodate Shane Watson surely we could accommodate KP

I'm not actually convinced that Kevin Pietersen is the issue here.
Obviously this is just wild speculation on my part but I get the impression that a) Pietersen's been shockingly managed throughout his England career and b) IMO it's the Swann-led clique in the dressing room that's as much a problem in the dressing room. (ok, Swann's gone but you get my point).
Unless there's something massive that's gone on behind the scenes in Australia (not out of the question given the shambles on the field), I don't understand how you could rehabilitate KP for the India tour then bin him a year later.
Massive loss for England. Pietersen was the one English player who could produce match-winning performances regardless of playing conditions or the opposition. He was also the most entertaining batsmen in the world to watch, so I'm gutted he's gone. Still England's batting isn't as ****ed without him as some are making it out to be. Root will come right eventually if he's left down the order and given time to grow. Was a collosal ballsup moving him up the order. England are only really missing an opener and a number 3. But England have been missing a 2nd opener since Strauss' performances started tailing off in 2011, and there's nothing to say that Trott won't be able to make a comeback later in the year.
