Any law which reasonable people will not or can not obey is a bad law because it encourages lawlesnes.
She made the law.
She broke the law.
She must resign.

She had seen the woman's passport, a letter from the Home Office on her right to work, her P45, her National Insurance details, references and a marriage certificate. But she did not take copies.....where I work they do!

As far as I am concerned, they will spontaneously combust - thus no need for coffin!

As she didn't take copies we don't know whether she did actually look at the documents.

Baroness Scotland is a thoroughly decent, competent minister and it's a great shame she has made a stupid administrative error which means she will be gone within a week.

Stephen Hesford, her PPS who has resigned said the same as me. Can't be long now. You should admire my wisdom, Sherlock, not my wit.

I was a bit gobsmacked about this tbh.
Does this mean that if I employ a cleaner, a gardener or a dog-walker for a couple of hours a week, I have to check their nationality and/or right to work, and keep photocopies of the evidence in case they're illegals pulling a fast one?
Patricia Scotland was a fool not to get the paperwork right, in her position she's bound to be open to scrutiny, but imo it's a bit of an onerous burden on ordinary folk. Why should we do the immigration service's job for them?
