PICTURE: Mitchell Surfaces on Green Benches

He lives. In the literal sense at least…

UPDATE: Labour are having some fun tomorrow. The Telegraph reports:

“Labour will tomorrow table a motion calling for his salary to be docked by £1,000, a sum similar to the amount he could have been fined had the police arrested him for breach of the peace – which at one stage in the altercation they threatened to do. Under Section 5 of the Public Order Act, anyone convicted of a public order offence can be fined between 50 per cent and 125 per cent of their weekly income by magistrates. Mr Mitchell earns £79,000 as Chief Whip on top of his MPs’ wage of £65,738. The unusual move by Labour puts Mr Mitchell in the unfortunate position of having to decide whether or not to order his party’s MPs to oppose the motion in a formal vote in the House of Commons.”

Perhaps the Home Office might finally get behind the Reform Section 5 campaign now…
