Video: Andrew Mitchell Statement


  1. 1
    Andrew"Bumble"Mitchell says:

    I’m a plebeian now chaps.

  2. 2
    The Meissen Bison says:

    He went to Rugby, for goodness sake. Who’s he to call anyone a pleb!

  3. 3
    Moussa Koussa says:

    Poor old Andrew Mongchell. Digging an even bigger hole, just a week before the conferance…what a spanner !!!!!

  4. 4
    Sid Yobo's copper nark says:

    Got a nice pay off from Rupee for this story.

  5. 5
    Kebab Time says:

    So if the cooper has accepted his apology why is this dragging on?

    Had it been a labour mp it would have been “oh its John being John”.

    I mean its not like nothing else is going on like people getting murdered by their “government” in Syria is it?

    This is just a media wankoff.

  6. 6
    Sandra in Accounts says:

    Resign you arse.

    Cameron does not have the balls to sack you, you will have to push yourself out of the trough.

    A job with a grateful NGO 4th sector rent seeking corporatists awaits you – for all the British taxpayer money you gifted them via DFID.

    Resign you arse.

  8. 8
    The BBC are cunts says:

    We’re all over this like a cheap suit on Lard Presclott.

  9. 9
    A Very Senior Tory Party Person says:

    Bloody plebs expecting a Senior Minister of the Crown to answer their questions…sheer bloody impertinence..these people should be tugging their forelocks not expecting such an important person to stand in the rain answering their damn fool questions

  10. 10
    Old Git says:

    You can tell he is lying, his lips are moving. Who would you rather believe, a politician or a policeman? Tough one eh?

  11. 11
    So . . . says:

    Roast the Fucker – there surely must be a fireplace somwhere

  12. 12
    Or . . . says:

    Lard Pressclur over The Secreatary

  13. 13
    I know a politician is being economical with the truth when his lips move says:

    Does the copper’s acceptance of his apology have the same veracity as Mitchell’s original denial of swearing? At the moment I’d like to see some independent verification of statements like this.

    But what about all those POOR PLEBS who voted for him in Sutton Coldfield?

    Spin the Bottle says:

    Perhaps Cameron can quote Tony Blair, Millionaire…after Lord Lardarse punched a member of the public and still remained Deputy Dawg:

    ” Well, ya know….erm….Andrew….is….well….just…Andrew.”

    Bum boy?

  24. 24
    Geoffrey H. Hindsmath (Major) British forces (ret) says:

    Oh dear, it looks as though David has now been proved to have no balls, which indecently cannot be said of the labour mob. If Cameron had the least spark of leadership in him he would have removed the Mitchell clown immediately as this prolonged debacle is only increasing the damage to this weak and elitist government.

  25. 25
    Spin the Bottle says:

    I say, “Meissen” or Labour Troll…you obviously didn’t learn to spell at the Marxist Academy.

    BTW, now remind me…how many “Socialist” Shadow Cabinet members went to public or independent schools and how many are sending their children to such elite schools?

    Just asking.

    No Geoffrey, it is a case of “he said/she said” PLUS the media stoking the story up out of all proportion.

    How funny when a Labour scumball is given light coverage. Harpic Harriet springs to mind, Presclott, and many, many more.

    because it is the right thing to do

  50. 50
    Britain the ruined Country says:

    Items that could have been the lead on bbc news today:-

    ** Continuing Syrian civil war, circa 30,000 dead so far.
    **Revelation that the Lancashire police, in particular have covered up child sex abuse by immigrant gangs. (remember the then CC saying, “so, it happens, get used to it”.
    ** Government spending increasing not decreasing.
    ** Idiocy of the Cleggbecile.

    No — the lead is what one dope said to another dope.

    See the lead article in the Times today – perhaps someone else will put a link to it.

  55. 55
    Loungelizard says:

    There could well be darker forces at play here. Is it possible that this politically left supporting police force is actively looking for situations that could embarrass a Tory government. This incident if handled properly by a competent officer without a political axe to grind should never have seen the light of day. The whole issue is so minor it’s laughable.

  56. 56
    Some Twat up North says:

    Don’t know what you are gobbing off about Cleggyboy “You’re FIRED”

    Who gives a s***, some idiot or idiots had an argument over something, happens million times over every day….he said sorry, cleggy and gordon call people bigots and its all glossed over.

  58. 58
    A.N.Other says:

    Mitchell needs a lesson in humility 101. The only way people like him have the chance to learn to raise their self awareness is by being hit where it hurts-by being demoted.

  59. 59
    "The" Cooper says:

    I have not accepted and apology from Andrew Mitchell and enjoy a media wankoff like any other hot blooded male.

    An obvious typo and I accept your grovelling apology.

  60. 60
    Baron Hogwash says:

    And since when did The Sun start getting information from the police about alleged incidents. Hang on.

    If an offense has been committed, charge him with something or get over it.

  61. 61
    A Passer-by says:

    You are Andrew Mitchell and I claim the £15 thousand million of our money that you pissed away over the last two years.

  62. 62

    Is English your first language Moussy? Brain power certainly isn’t your first attribute.

  63. 63
    Geoffrey H. Hindsmath (Major) British forces (ret) says:

    Regardless of political party or supporters, this and many other similar incidents just go to illustrate the lack of leadership within the political elite within this country. It goes without saying that no one individual within ANY of the main stream parties could possibly stand out as LEADERSHIP MATERIAL. None would be employed in the real world on ability alone; it’s a pity that the old boy network and family influence carry such weight to the detriment of this country!

  64. 64
    PC Plod says:

    That viscous-looking member of the public was looking at me in an aggressive and viscous way. Fearing for my life, I smashed him to the ground and, by causing him to die, incapacitated him.

    I then denied any responsibility – damn the tourist with the video camera – grabbed my huge taxpayer-funded pension and sailed off into the sunset.

    Remember: no matter how many members of the public we kill, no police officer ever gets charged.

  65. 65
    jgm2 says:

    It’s because he (Brown) ‘cared too much’.

  66. 66
    The Meissen Bison says:

    Your bottle is pointing the wrong way.

    My school was rather more up market than Rugby.


  67. 67
    Sir William Waad says:

    Perhaps Mr Mitchell actually called the bluebottle a ‘plod’.

    Westminster coverup?
    It has allowed George Osborne to keep a low profile and Ed Miliband to do the same.
    Only a fool would attempt to discuss serious matters when they can hide behind a media sham of somebody else feeling affronted

    I hate Parliament so much it hurts says:

    The basic details are on their front page at the moment:

    Well done for all that unfettered immigration, Labour. The plan was to f*ck off everyone in Britain, and boy, the plan worked. Now, what do they propose to do to fix the mess, because Dave and his LimpDum chums sure don’t look like they can be arsed to deal with it.

  73. 73
    Time for Kebab Time to go says:

    81lly, just because you have a wank in your security booth at everything you think is exciting does not mean everybody does

    I take it that the new borrowing figures are just a slight amusment for Georgie boy and Dave. What does it really matter to them? They appear to be only playing at this government thing to pass the time.

  75. 75
    Dandy Mitchell says:

    I’d like to remind you plebs, it has taken me less than a week to say sorry to the plebs I insulted. Whereas, those plebs pleby colleagues from up north (a pleb lying about opening gates – who’d have thought it), took twenty three years to apologise.

    Diane Abbott and Tom Watson's love child says:

    Andrew Mitchell has apologised for not showing the police enough respect.

    “I don’t think they are plebs, though that Sting is a bit of a cu*t” he said in a statement.

  82. 82

    The head of the Met, on R5, when asked by Mellor to explain why police officers had been paid to give transcripts to newspapers replied, “that isn’t the issue.”

    I expect that is entirely the issue.

  83. 83

    Dick Nobinson: “Do you think the Andrew Mitchell should resign?”

    Nick Clegg “Hell no! Its keeping our disastrous, depressing, defeated conference off the news.”

    I’m bored with this story.
    He shouldn’t be rude, but it’s hardly a sackable offence or one that he should resign for.He’s apologised so can everyone now move on and allow the government to focus on what’s important.

    If one of us had ridden up to a police checkpoint, had been asked to dismount our cycle and take it through a sidegate and instead had started shouldting obscenities at the police, and then when asked to desist continued to shout obscenities at the police do we think a) they would turn their back and ignore us or b) arrest us?

    Why is nobody seeing the obvious here?

    To clear this matter up, all we need to know is:

    Was it a two or a a four bottle lunch that had poor Andrew all stressed and bellicose?

    And did he have time for a brandy and cigar before taking on the Met’s jobsworths?

  95. 95
    John says:

    Why do the Conservative party allow this matter to become a media event . AM was riding his bike out of Downing St and he must have been known to the policemen on duty . All they had to do was press a button and the gate would open and AM would depart on to Whithall . The question is what type of awnfull jobsworth were the police on duty . Just think the police on duty get a very good salery and pension for guarding the Downing St. Also most employees are asked not to discuss confidential matters regarding their employment with the media , this rule must apply to the Met. Also is the person concerned a active member of the police federation , for they are the body who have given this story legs . This is a further example of the left wing media giving the conservatives a hard time.

  96. 96
    a squid eating dough in a polyethelene bag says:

    On BBC News


    Met Police is investigating how police records of the incident involving Andrew Mitchell were obtained by the Sun newspaper

  99. 99
    MB. says:

    From the various police reality programmes on TV, they tend to warn several times that if the person swears again they will be arrested. Usually they need a lot of provocation before they actually do something which is perhaps why Boris Johnson was saying that anyone swearing at the police should be arrested, impractical of course as all the police would be back at the station doing paperwork.

  100. 100
    Grimy Miner says:

    Remember, this happened in the same week that a nutcase offed 2 policewomen in that hellhole that is Manchester. Glossy Dave immediately came on the idiot amuser to tell us that respect for the plod was in decline, that we should protect our large shoed enforcers.

    Then a government chief whip does this. Where is the respect for the filth now, Davey boy?

    This should have appeared as a response to 67…

    Andrew Mitchell says:

    Why can’t you fucking plebs believe me when I tell you that I didn’t call you fucking plebs? You really ought to know your fucking place and stop badgering me for fucking apologies and fucking explanations……………..and stop fucking swearing.

  106. 106
    El Passo says:

    Six of one, half a dozen of the other here.

    He should not have insulted the cops and he should not have threatened to get them later.

    The cops should either have arrested him or treated him to some witty comments.

    The reason this made the news is because of the threats he made that this was not the last they would hear about this, so in order to cover their arses they submitted written reports of the incident and somehow this got to the Sun.

    Then we also have the plod Union trying to make political capital out of it.

    It would be decidedly jolly though if one of the tourists who witnessed it came forward.

    I agree, but do not make the mistake of thinking that only the police are to blame for Hillsborough. Politicians would like us to think that but there were many opportunities to get to the truth. Not for the first time the name Jack Straw appears all over some of the early efforts – telling judges that there was nothing to the claims before even asking them to look at it.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
