I just don't get why she isn't resigning.
She's not an irreplaceable political asset to the Government - until this scandal 99% of the public had never heard of her.
She is causing reputational damage to it by hanging on.
What is the point in her continuing in office?
Personally I'm uncomfortable with the signal sent to ordinary working people by a Labour minister employing a "housekeeper" - sounds like someone from the cast of "upstairs, downstairs" - whether that servant is an illegal immigrant or not. I thought we represented people who cooked their own dinners and did their own washing up, not the servant-employing classes.
