Those are words that Peter Hain will be hearing a lot over the next few days. The revelation that the Electoral Commission is considering referring the Hain case to the Police adds yet more pressure on the beleagured Work and Pensions Secretary, yet he shows few signs of recognising that as every day passes he is a serious drag on the government. He's so far defied Alastair Campbell's rule that if a scandal-dogged Minister is in the headlines for more than a set number of days (was it five?) he will have to go.
I suspect there are quite a few people saying to him privately what Ian Gibson said publicly yesterday. That's what happens in these circumstances. Brown doesn't want to humiliate him by sacking him (yet again showing signs of 'bottling' a big decision) so the Labour whips will be encouraging Hain's allies to 'have a quiet word with Peter and encourage him to do the decent thing'. Whether he listens or not, he will know that he is a dead minister walking. Even if he doesn't go now, he will be sacked in the next reshuffle. The irony is that Brown would have moved him out then anyway, even if this scandal hadn't happened.
