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…

    Gordon Brown knew he wasn’t up to the job of prime minister, former cabinet minister Jack Straw has claimed.

    Edelman & Co says:

    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…

    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.

    Gordon Brown says:

    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.

    I am God’s gift to politics

    Just look at all the successes to my credit

    Irak, rendition, Boom and Bust and the generalised disrepute of Britain

    But they let him have the job unopposed.
    This bunch of cowards must never be allowed near to levers of power ever again.

    Jack the Man of Straw says:

    You think I’m bad; wait for my Straw Sprog.

  28. 28 says:

    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.

  29. 29
    Jack Straw says:

    Straw bends in the wind, and there were allot of farts in Downing Street, that’s why I survived.

    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.

  33. 33

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

    It’s after the next election of course……

    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?

    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…..

    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?

    Blowing Whistles says:

    QBP – quite so.

    The wording and use of “Fresh consent” – duplicitously infers that there had been previous consent somewhere in the past.

    Aren’t they surely “scraping the bottom of the barrel”?

  57. 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

    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…..

    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.

    gram64 says:

    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.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
