    I,ve seen the future (and it´s shit!). says:

    Mitchell should resign? We´re all resigned now.

  5. 5 says:

    I seem to recall a Prime Minister who called a member of the public a ‘bigoted woman’. This was recorded yet the person in question did not resign. In Mitchell’s case there was no record. The policeman may have lied (although I can believe someone getting annoyed at a petty-minded, obstructive official) or misheard what was said and/or others in the police force may have exaggerated the incident as payback for the Tories for police cuts and exposing them as liars over Hillsborough. It all boils down to a policeman’s word against a politician’s. Who to believe?

    The incident with Brown damaged him and Labour and this will further damage the Tories. Will making Mitchell resign reduce that damage? Not an iota. So why bother?

  6. 6
    David Cameron (Leader of the Nasty Party) says:

    I have to agree with the comments made by John Tully,the Chirman of the Met Police Federation that I talk “hollow words”.

    My closing speech to Conference will be “hollow words” from start to finish.

    Now if you excuse me, I have no time to engage with plebs who should know their place.

    Forelock says:

    Why are you constantly trying to defend this arrogant piece of shit?

    His own party hate him. The reason that he has had a trouble free last two years is that the Lefties have left him alone because he was handing out free money to Marxist governments all around the world.

    The charges were joint
    And to get to the point
    The champagne will not go on ice.

  10. 10 says:

    Because I don’t always believe what is said in the Sun or that policemen always tell the truth. I don’t give a shit about Mitchell or any other Tory but that doesn’t mean I should join a lynch-mob. As I say it is one man’s word against another and unless there is some recording no one will ever know the truth.

    You should also wonder how come the Sun got the story so quickly and from whom and what their motive was, if you ever thought about it for one second.

  11. 11
    illogical says:

    Good points UKIPIAMA.
    To be honest I am getting bored with the reporting of this minor confrontation and continual TV media coverage of the Downing Street gates and police boxes.
    In view of the minimal amount of actual work that appears to be happening in them, am beginning to suspect one of them must be 8illy’s booth.
    Am now concentrating on signs of kebab gravy for confirmation.

    Come on Redwood start a leadership challenge , even a fuckin Vulcan is better than Pee Wee Herman !

  23. 23
    The Motive? says:

    No it’s not. It is one policeman’s and one policewoman’s words against one man. If these two police constables have lied then they will have committed a serious criminal offence which would require custodial sentences and an ending of their careers. Why would they possibly destroy their lives over such an incident?

  24. 24
    Tony Eden from Eton says:

    Most policemen I know would need a dictionary to know what a pleb is .

    It is a word outside the vocabulary of most policemen .

    it is a word more often associated with a privileged education . Mr Mitchell went to a private school and then Cambridge .

    A look at the records of Cambridge Magistrates Court show many many misdemeanours committed by graduates and undergraduates.

    Where the evidence of the police and the evidence of Mr Mitchell diverge I prefer and adopt here the version of Mr Mitchell .

    In coming to this conclusion I would like it to be known that my own private school and Oxbridge education has not influenced me in the slightest .

    Yvonne from The Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    When a politician walks straight off camera after a short interview I get a funny feeling .

    I have just seen and heard what happened with Mr Cameron and the BBC about that Andrew Mitchell .

    Mr Cameron claims he was told what was said between Mr Mitchell and the Police Officer .

    I am trying to understand what has gone on and have written to Downing Street asking them to kindly let me have a transcript of Mr Mitchell’s version of the conversation as given to Mr Cameron .

    Once I have this I will contact the Police and post my findings here .

    Thank Tony Blair for giving us freedom of information .

    Even if you believe his version of events then why is he apologizing ?

    More damage will be done to the Party by Mitchell continuing .

    If he goes honorably he reduces the damage to his own party and Leader .

    “My closing speech to Conference”

    Just idly wondering, but why do these political muppets say “to conference” or “at conference”?

    Is it the norther/nisation of English? “I’m going to pub tonight”. “I had right good time at whi/ppet races”. “Think I’ll go to conference”.

    Tomorrow's Chip Wrapper(On yer bike late edition) says:

    The point is…it no longer really matters what Mitchell actually said or did(although I’ve heard rumours that there is video…don’t know if that is true but if it is and it’s posted on YouTube and proves the police version THEN Mitchell is a goner)The perception is now growing that he and by association the Tory Party and especially those around Cameron are arrogant public schoolboy bullies and that Mitchell has let the cat out of the bag on what their true feelings for the electorate are…..this coupled with the “Flashman” soubriquet that has attached itself to Cameron….means that the longer this goes on the more toxic it is for the Tory party.The electorate can sometimes forgive arrogance in a competent administration BUT Cameron’s isn’t competent so this WILL stick. The “Sunday’s” will have a field day…there are already neighbours of Mitchell’s coming forward to say what an “arrogant shit” he is and has been for over 30 years and that he often complains and writes to them on House of Commons headed notepaper rather than write and according to reports has “bad-mouthed” a neighbour’s wife and that the neighbour had to step in and tell him in so many words to “fuck off himself!”(he has very few friends outside Cameron’s circle in the wider Tory PLP …he’s already antagonised the cheerleader in chief of Tory Party theDaily Mail over Foreign Aid when he was International Development Secretary….if this continues over weekend I suspect that Mitchell will be gone by Monday evening but in any event he’s finished politically….this will “dog” him all the while he remains in front line politics

    I can understand one copper probably “flowering up” a conversation with an arrogant M.P. who has threatened to have him sacked, but in this day and age, I can’t believe an individual police officer trusting another colleague enough to ask their help to “verbal” a member of the government with all their high ranking contacts. There are many police officers today willing to report unprofessional conduct in other officers, even jokes that they think may have “offended” someone.

    It’s more likely the copper immediately recorded the conversation in his notebook while it was still fresh in his memory. They’re called “contemporaneous notes” and are still held to be credible in a court of law.

    Choosing who to believe – a police officer or an arrogant politician hated by many in his own party? It should be a no-brainer.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
