I got to think (yes, I know, take it easy) about how the other half live. Take Peter Hain for instance. He’s got into a spot of bother for some donations that he may, or may not, have had given to him to use for his campaign to become deputy leader of the Labour party. When the water got a little too hot, he was able to tender his resignation, in order to ‘clear his name’.
Now, as I thought about things, I realised that he is in a slightly different position to myself. I certainly couldn’t resign my job in order to clear the contested parking ticket that I had unwittingly aquired. Or, gone on extended leave because there was a discrepancy with my tax credit form.
