CCHQ Tell Tory MPs: Don’t Mention Mitchell

This was sent around by CCHQ yesterday to Tory MPs

From: Park, Nick

Sent: 10 October 2012 11:28

To: Park, Nick

Subject: Andrew Mitchell

There is a journalist ring round under way asking MPs for their opinions on Andrew Mitchell. Please do not respond to these surveys – they are very unhelpful.

The line to take remains that Andrew Mitchell has apologised and that apology has been accepted by the Police and the Prime Minister; Andrew Mitchell is getting on with his job.

Nick

The PM will have to make up his mind before Monday. Surprising how many MPs and even Cabinet Ministers are openly sceptical he can survive…

      The problem with that is that Mitchell is finished – except that with the vanity and bluster typical of almost all politicians, he’s too thick skinned to have realised the inevitable yet. Every time he pops up in the future he’s going to be trailed by the press and Plebgate, whatever the truth of what was said at the time.

      if he had any sense he’d retire to the backbenches for a while and wait to see what the future brings – he’s too wounded to continue as Chief Whip.

        Agreed. Mitchell is an odious, strutting little creep and the sooner he’s booted out the party the better for all concerned.

          If you were to boot MPs out of their parties for being “odious, strutting little creeps” (to which I’d add “mendacious supercilious thieves”, there’d be .. none of them .. left.. hmmmmm. I think you’re onto something here.

      Constituents/party members/ think he is a dick, so here’s hoping! Being an active media whore and going on a photo rampage for one afternoon to bank those press releases in prep for your disappearing act for weeks on end. This is the price you pay for being arrogant as fk and a fair weather MP. Local Tory Party is on its arse, not bec we are in gov, but bec you killed it along with inactive cllrs that manage to destroy safe seats after ONE TERM no less. It’s called complacency. Fire him-humility 101, ar*hole.

    With pressure building on the BBC and senior staff working during the 70s and 80s to explain what they knew about Jimmy Savile sex abuse claims, a book by a top journalist reveals details of alleged paedophilia involving another children’s broadcasting star at the corporation.

    Working as a fledgling hack in the late 1960s, BBC world affairs editor John Simpson was tasked with reporting the death of a former BBC children’s entertainer – given the pseudonym ‘Uncle Dick’ in his book Strange Places Questionable People.

    Calling a former co-star for reaction to his passing, Simpson was shocked to hear Uncle Dick described as an “evil bastard”:

    “Week after week, children from all over the country would win competitions to visit the BBC and meet Uncle Dick. He would welcome them, show them round, give them lunch, and then take them to the Gents and interfere with them.”

    Sound familiar?

    “If their parents complained afterwards, she said the Director-General’s office would write and say the nation wouldn’t understand such an accusation against a much loved figure.”

    Relating this discovery to his editor, Simpson was then admonished for being a “destructive young idiot” before a full scale newsroom cover up was orchestrated. The copy written up for newsreaders read as follows:

    Uncle Dick’s partner for many years — Auntie Gladys — told the BBC that she was deeply saddened by his death. She said “He had a wonderful way with children.”

    As with the fawning tribute to Jimmy Savile broadcast after his death in 2011, BBC managers wouldn’t allow serious allegations of child abuse to tarnish the reputation of one of their stars.

    Cameron has had a reasonable tory conference and dug himself out of the mire for now. But to keep mitchell will make him look spineless again.

    He needs to get rid of him early in a decisive fashion not dithering about until it becomes inevitable and he is forced to act.
