Boris Says Arrest Mitchell

Listen to the crowd lap up the Mayor’s call for people to be arrested for swearing at the police. Awkward.

“Friends of Mitchell” Deny “Pleb” Charge

“Friends of Andrew Mitchell” have kicked into action, briefing Tim Shipman of the Mail that his  rant was not “overheard by the public. It was a few muttered comments”. They/he also denies the use of the word “pleb” but “not getting into the rest of it”. The damage is done though.

Where he said: “We need more respect and more police on the streets.”

UPDATE:

Which magazines do the BBC buy most?

Which Magazines the Beeboids Buy

Following the news last month that the BBC buys more copies of the Guardian than any other newspaper, Guido thought he would have some more FOI fun. It turns out the BBC’s love for lefty rags doesn’t extend to the New Statesman – the Beeb bought more copies of the Speccie than the Staggers between January and July this year. An ideological shift to the right? More likely they’ve just realised there’s nothing worth reading in the Staggers any more…

Meanwhile Ian Hislop clearly hasn’t sorted out his BBC colleagues with any free copies of Private Eye, with the Beeb having to fork out for 155 in the last seven months. They aren’t buying James MacIntyre’s predictions that never come true though – Prospect fares pretty badly at a sobering seven a month. And as for Total Politics? Oh dear…

50 Shades of Sorry

Yesterday we had the Cleggapology, now it’s Andrew Mitchell’s turn to say sorry. According to the Sun Thrasher launched an extraordinary foul-mouthed tirade at cops while trying to leave Downing Street on his bike last Wednesday:


“Open these gates, I’m telling you – I’m telling you, I’m the chief whip and I’m coming through these gates. Best you learn your f***ing place. You don’t run this f***ing government. You’re f***ing plebs.”

It’s already being dubbed gate-gate. How about an autotune remix…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
