She wrote the law, then broke it. With Max Clifford now advising her former housekeeper, can Baroness Scotland survive?

Labour chiefs are braced for tomorrow's opening of their party conference to be overshadowed by damaging new claims about Baroness Scotland, the Attorney General, by her former housekeeper.
