Mitchell’s Deigns to Give Local Rag Shoddy Pleb Spin

One week on and Andrew Mitchell still cannot give a straight and simple answer on whether he said the word “pleb”:

“On Wednesday night I tried to leave Downing Street by the main gate, something I have done many times before.I was told that I was not allowed to leave that way. During the subsequent altercation, although I did not use the specific words that have been suggested, I do accept that I did not treat the police with the respect they deserve.

“It’s been extremely difficult both for me and my family. I have apologised and said that I am extremely sorry. I think most people who know me know I would not use words like pleb or moron in describing anyone. I would gently point out that I did not say the words that have been ascribed to me.”

Why won’t he just say “I did not call the officer a pleb”? As he should have last Friday. Nice to see him hiding behind his children there too. Very Huhne…

    I did not have relations with that PC

      But he has said he did not say the officer was a pleb from the word go. How many times does he have to say the same thing? He may be lying through his teeth but he his sticking to his version of events, whether you like it or not.

        He was surely most probably “verballed”.

        Metpol have done it for years. Having made up the words which suit their purpose, . Two Officers “write it in their pocket book”.

        Thus duplicated it becomes fact.

        He almost certainly said ‘plods’, not ‘plebs’. The police knew this, but as they are deeply offended by the former description, they opted for the latter, since they knew it would get Mitchell into even hotter water, and knew that he wouldn’t dare to reveal what he actually said.

      Guido what do you call a policeman/woman when they stop you for speeding and saying, “I smell alcohol on you breath, would you please blow breath analyser, reading reads 80. I would like to ask to accompany to the station, I must caution you….”

    As master spinmeisters

    We advise that politicians should never come clean when they get caught

    Just as we advise Murdoch’s criminal employees to muddy the waters permanently

    That’s why we are paid millions…like all those bent lawyers…

    Interesting piece here on Mitchell…at Lazards…

    I suppose the Dark Lord has taken on his role there now…

    Chris Huhne – should take centre stage next week – Oh He can’t he’s up before the courts.

    Question is – what gigantic spin story will come out next week [From the Labour circus conference] – so that the MSM fail to mention the Huhne’s Public Controversy criminal case.

    The Criminal trial does not need – highly over paid ‘Celebrity QC’s’ – to get at the truth of matters – He preverted the course of justice and did NOT have any ministerial / political immunity from prosecution at the time he committed the act – in a conspiracy with his wife – Both are guilty.

    It must have George “I have no Plan B ” Osborne who rang the opening bell on Wall Street this afternoon.

    It’s tanking rather nicely,thank you,and I fear a “Black Monday” for the FTSE.

    Happy Days are here again.

      There is one name that puts the wind up Cammers, “David Davis” and who ran Davis’s election for leader, Mitchell

    Simple Baccalaureate question:-
    This government is no different to any previous government. Discuss.

      Blowing Whistles says:

      Its been discussed – many a time – but there are still some tribal political heads who continue to ‘believe and think’ that one or the other party [even in a comatose coalition] will solve it all …. that of course is surely the biggest ruse upon an unsuspecting majority of the public?

    Cast Iron Dave, Mr U-Turns, makes you another Cast Iron promise says:

    David Cameron has given his clearest hint yet that he will back a referendum on Britain’s relationship with the EU if the Tories win the next election. He said there will be opportunities for the British people to give “fresh consent” to the UK’s EU membership.


  18. 33

    So, apparently Cameron has “hinted at an EU referendum”, according to BBC news.

    It’s after the next election of course……

    Are they really so fucking stupid that they think we’ll believe them in advance, again…..

    Fuck you, you fucking fucks.

    What does he think he is doing? says:

    Facts are. Anyone whose job it is to open and close gates for others to pass through, is a dogsbody, a surf, a lowlife who the Plebeians look down upon. How dare this Minister elevate such a person to the plebeian class?

    Has Willard Mitt(y) conceded yet .

        The irony is that one of the very truthful statements by either of the two fucking fucks, was Mittens saying that 47% of the electorate were bought and paid for (sorry, bought and borrowed for) through their reliance on the taxation of others.

        And it’s probably killed him.

        Kid’s voting for Christmas and ice cream and phones for all…..

      He will probably enlist Palin to go on the stump with him, in the hope she make him look good

    Surely there can’t be anymore mileage in the Mitchell story.

    Well, boys and girls, 7 is the magic number and the story is showing no signs of going away. Mitchell must now be considered time-expired.

      John Johnson says:

      Has Dave given him his full backing yet


      • 78
        R1cardoC says:

        Yes, full backing etc., etc., but I don’t think the gang has grasped how bad this debacle plays-out. There are those who wish to draw lines and move on, but it is my understanding that the backbenches are acutely aware of the damage being caused by the mounting column inches and realise he has to go and go quickly! Dave is going to have to wield the axe as Mitchell wont fall on his own sword.

    Mr Mitchell.

    I do not believe you sir. You are a cad and a bounder and should be Thrashed

    Yvonne from The Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    If I was a Tory back bench MP and Mr Mitchell tried to whip me I would tell him to go and play with himself .


  26. 57
    Sylvio says:

    - can’t see how he can have any authority left

    for any backbencher confronted with Mitchell it would almost certainly be too tempting not to say “f–k o– you pleb” in reply to whatever it was he said

    – even in a benign moment

    UKIP convert says:

    The latest from CMDDD is a hint from him & stress only a hint, of a EU referendum for us Plebs AFTER he WINS the 2015 General Election……….

    Now if anyone believes that will happen & he will honour this slight hint of a EU referendum for the Plebs, following on from his broken cast iron guarantee, he is more of a fool than we know he is…..

    VOTE >>>>> U K I P on 15 NOV >>>> on 15 Nov VOTE U K I P >>>>>>>

    Even more EU Chickens are coming home to defecate ……

    The latest info on Spanish Banks is they need additional 60Bn EURO urgent

    cash injection……..according to the latest audit report….

    No doubt our Glorious Leader CMDDD will be committing us Plebs to even

    more debt to prop up this ever mounting magna ponzi debt scheme….

    which at some point will like a volcano blow its top…….

    All Plebs should take cover NOW……..
