A moral dilemma involving a bad employee

This employee chose a poor spot to park their van.
This week's 'Would You Rather?' dilemma involves the following work related scenario...

You have the worst employee ever.  They are completely useless at their job, and have no interest in trying to improve.  They then apply for a job at another company and the other company asks for a reference.

Under UK law you can't give someone a bad reference, but if the law allowed you to be honest, would you complete the reference honestly and admit that this employee was useless at their job?  Or would you give them a fictitiously impressive reference pretending they were really good, in the hope that they get the job and that way you get rid of them and they become someone else's problem?

Of course whatever reference you gave them, there's no guarantee that they would get the job, but if you could give increase your chances of getting rid of them by telling a few untruths, would you do it?
