For what its worth and it can’t be much Baroness Scotland has apparently got off without having to resign from government and has Gordon Browns support.
Now forgive me for my limited knowledge of the law, but I’ve always heard that ignorance of the law is no excuse, so I’m a bit perplexed that Baroness Scotland is able to pay a fine and not have to resign for her “technical breach” in employing illegally her Tongan housekeeper.
Admittedly ignorance of the facts is something slightly different and a crime I’m often accused in writing this blog, how many are currently languishing in prison simply because they’ve been found with property they didn’t know belonged to someone else, purely a “technical breach”.
Baroness Scotland should resign plain and simple.
In 2009 after 12 years of Labour its still possible and happens that people go to prison for non payment of council tax and yet Labour MP’s have larged it up on expenses and now this. Labour looks an awful lot like the tories they replaced.
