Sky News (TV, can't find a link) have just reported this morning that Baroness Scotland has been find £5000 by the UKBA for employing an overstayer.
The comment from Eamonn Holmes was that she 'will accept the fine.' Well that's gracious of her, isn't it? Is that a line we can all take? Or is it only senior politicians that can decide whether they accept a fine or not?
It matters not, she'll probably claim it on her expenses, anyway.
Of more concern is the report that she doesn't see this as a resigning matter.
So the government's senior legal officer breaks a law that she was instrumental in pushing through and as the highest legal figure in the country, doesn't see it as an issue when she breaks the law she is sworn to uphold.
So, if breaking the law isn't cause for a resignation, what the hell is?
It isn't one law for us and one law for them, it is one law for us and no law for them.
