Double Standards

Always the way, isn't it? You say 'I'll be back this weekend', and then your Internet connection breaks in such a severe fashion that the next step up from what it did would be to burst into flames and set your house on fire.

Anyway... I see that Otolose Loloahi Tapui, the former cleaner of Attorney General Baroness Scotland, has been charged with immigration offences. It's interesting, isn't it, that the cleaner is charged with criminal offences, but the learned Baroness can get away with a fine and calling the whole thing a 'technical' and 'administrative' breach?

I look forward to the day when, after stabbing four disenchanted voters to death, some expenses-fiddling Labour MP turns around to claim it was only 'technical killing', any not something more serious.
