It's not a great story and it's quite clear the Home Office is, still, one of the most problematic areas of government (as it has been for decades and under all 'colours' of government) but to lay this all at CC's door and expect a resignation is IMO a denial of the facts as well as petty and opportunistic politicing of the highest order (and shows what are the real 'concerns' of the opposition parties in this).

this issue was first brought to his attention following the publication of the NAO report in July last year. It is this particular point that I believe he should resign over as, IMO it 'then' became his responsibility and could not from that point be blamed on a 'systemic failure'.
The Commons home affairs committee meanwhile has announced that it will investigate the debacle of the released prisoners.
The MPs will question both Mr Clarke and Home Office officials.
