Mitchell at Risk

His first big Commons test coming up this afternoon with two emergency statements. Will the Chief Whip be forced to hide again?

      Why is this witch hunt of Andrew Mitchel being allowed to continue ?Its obvious its being kept going by the Labour party who seem to have forgotten Prescot punching a man when he was deputy (!) PM. As i recall that didnt drag on for 4 weeks with the Police federation being wheeled out to put their 3 pennorth in. David Cameron needs to get some decent advisors.

            Whether you like prescott or not[ and i don,t] He acted instinctively in self defense.Mitchell does not see himself as a public servant.He think everybody else is his servant.

      In other words the EU is some form of protection racket – we pay them huge amounts of cash & in return France & Germany won’t launch military assualt against us

        Remember the Greeks have already burnt a pregnant woman alive while she was working in a Bank . Germans have never been flavour of the month after WW2 .

        Turkey is neither in or out of the EU but because of its location and size cannot be ignored .

        The French have already physically assaulted two Ministers within months of Hollande’s lot taking over . Beware of a smiling Marine Le Pen .

        Catalonia is a time bomb which could explode literally .

        Romany gypsies are running amock in mainline Europe .

        Ask the average Italian how he or she feels about cross Mediterranean immigration .

        Just because Cable called the property bubble correctly does not make him a Nobel prize winner but sadly he may just have a point .

      St Vince is referring to the forthcoming civil war amongst the LibDims and mistakenly, as usual, thinking it will have trans European implications…

      Would this war be the war (returned unused) that Cable said that he had declared on Murdoch? Cable likes to pep up his comments with the word “war”.

    From the Mail

    Top eurocrat says the Nobel Prize means we must now ‘cherish’ the EU

    You may have seen by now that today the EU was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Eurocrats were so moved that there were trembling lips this morning as the European Commission president, José Manuel Barroso, swept into the Press Room at the Berlaymont headquarters to make a statement to the hacks. He asserted that the prize was a message from the Nobel Prize committee that the EU was ‘precious’ and that all European citiziens must ‘cherish’ it, but refused to take questions on it.

    Which is the usual guff we always get from Barroso, the difference this time that when he turned to leave the Press Room, applause broke out. I swivelled my head to see which hacks could possibly be breaking the rule of the brotherhood that we do not clap for anyone.

    What I saw were a lot of journalists not clapping, but a scattering of people who appeared to be commission staff members. They had come and sat among the journalists, and they were the ones doing the clapping. How convenient. For the television cameras present — especially for Barroso’s own 24-hour duty film crew — it looked like the massed ranks of the Brussels press corps were applauding him.
    We weren’t.

    As for the EU winning the Nobel Prize for Peace, as one wag pointed out after Barroso left, ‘They’d hardly win it for economics.’

      The Norwegians are canny beggars… they need to suck up to Brussels so that they don’t get sqeezed out of ‘totaleurope’

      So in reality Norway is full blooded stereotypical EU their EU edge over the rest of us being to sit on the sidelines and cherry-pick.

      Now that ‘null points’ Norway have turned Nobel into barefaced politics , will the 2014 Eurovision be staged in Oslo?

      Shows you the calibre of the people we elect to lead us. Cable has just shown that his grasp on politics is seriously flawed.

    “they’d hardly win it for economics.’ For the past half centuary the UK has hardly covered itself in glory, especially considering the number of economic graduates churned out by universities, they have lacked common sense in application which is what Maggie was trying to say in the 1980’s

    At least Fortnum’s have guts.

    Fortnum & Mason has defended its right to sell foie gras, saying it has been eaten for hundreds of years without complaint, and vowing not to yield to animal-rights campaigners.

      I told Cameron to get rid of this idiot two weeks ago because he was an embarrasment to the Party and the country.

      But would he listen ?

        Why are there double standards ? Prescott punched a man in the face when he was deputy pm, i dont remember all this fuss. The police have behaved disgracefully hijacking the situation for political reasons.Lets hope the Federation is going to be as hard on the 100 or so PCs who “altered” their statements at Hillsborough.People arent going to forget how they milked this situation.

    There are far more important issues than pandering to Pleb Plods says:

    Dave — once and for all — will you tell the Plods to fxck off and get back to their canteens where the lazy fat bxstards can contemplate their early retirements and gold plated inflation proofed pensions. Mitchell clearly understated his comments to the jobsworths.

    Jack Daw says:

    I thought Mitchell (an utter fool) should go-until I saw the simpering West Midlands Police Federation rep displaying his hurt feelings on TV. What hope have we got when our police have embraced the victim culture like this?

      Totally agreed.

      Mitchell’s an utter dick but who do you want choosing members of the Gov. – the rozzers and Yvette Balls or the PM?

      The involvement of the Police federation is a disgrace, not that it comes as any surprise after their appalling behaviour towards the Home secretary at their conference.I wonder if the simperer will be wheeled out when Hillsborough hits the fan ?

    Mitchell may have been offensive.Big deal.

      Mitchell should have been arrested on the spot for offensive behaviour in front of members of the public. The swearing is not disputed.

    Where’s the IPCC report about Duggan? The Police have got away with murder on the streets again, instead of making an arrest so that the individual can be tried in Court.
