Is her failure to resign the final nail in Labour's coffin?

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.

Like your wit sashimi. It was the competent that did it.

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.

Wait and wisdom.

Sorry, typo - supposed to be Wit and wisdom. I was at work, typing and on the phone at the same time.

before anyone asks, i'd just like to say that Sherlock has my full support and i shall not be asking for his resignation in the matter of the typo.

It was an honest mistake, no more really than dodging my train fare. I shall not be resigning (until Friday)

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?
