Mitchell F-Bomb Mystery

When pleb-gate exploded nearly a month ago now Andrew Mitchell admitted to the Sunday Telegraph that he had sworn at the police. This is how they reported it:

“The Sunday Telegraph understands that the Chief Whip’s version of events is that after asking officers to open the main gates to Downing Street for his bicycle, and being refused, he said:

“You guys are supposed to f***ing help us.””

At PMQs Thrasher responded to Ed’s claim he had sworn by shouting, from a sedentary position, “I didn’t”. This was meant to be the day that the story was killed, now by engaging with Miliband at PMQs the whole thing has been reopened. So, Mr Mitchell, did you swear or didn’t you?

      The guy was obnoxious and rude, whatever the specific words, and he didn’t sort it out properly afterwards. He must go.

          with more important matters such as Jimmy Savile’s place in the and at the heart of British establishment, did Prince Charles write any enabling letters on his and Savile’s behalf?

      Next time if these police officers arrest someone and produce the accused in courts, accused could called in Mr. Michel and ask him to testify against the officers.

      I’m with SD on this one. Apparently you come come back to government after being caught stealing, you can keep your job after lying to the House, but losing your rag with Babylon is crossing the line. It really is all about how it plays in the press rather than any real principle.


      • 120

        I have to agree with you, Young James. I know – it had to happen one day!

        My only concern here is that Babylon does not have a good track record at giving accurate accounts of incidents.

    No evidence of any comment being made, Ed trying to pull a fast one with an imaginary ‘Heckle’. Calling a copper a pleb (if true) is hardly one of the crimes of the century, however, sack him by all means if he is not up to the job he is supposed to be doing.

    The BBC cover-up/stitch-up continues says:

    The BBC effectively banned comics from making Jimmy Savile jokes on Mock The Week, host Dara O Briain has claimed. Last night’s episode featured only one passing reference to one of the biggest stories of the week – and even then it was to comment on BBC censorship.

    O Briain told The Sun that Savile was off-limits, saying: ‘The BBC were very cautious about that. I don’t think they wanted anything about that on Mock The Week.’ Instead of Savile, the topical subjects raised on yesterday’s show were the Tory Party conference, patients being asked to rate hospitals, David Blaine’s latest stunt and England football manager Roy Hodgson traveling on the Tube.

    But Andy Parsons slipped one comment in which made the final edit. When asked what question might have the answer 10 billion, he said: ‘What are the chances against a joke about Jim’ll Fix It on the BBC?’ Yesterday, gossip newsletter Popbitch reported that writers on Russell Howard’s Good News had always been told to steer clear of Savile gags.

        Archer Karcher says:

        Without Gatwick, Crawley would still be a village, not a thriving, wealthy boom town. The locals know where the money comes from, plus the flightpath is not over the town. I’m sure the local lefties will try and kick up a stink, but nobody wants less wealth now, do they?

    arrested for this type of out burst & brought before the Courts……….

    But it appears from the high table that Effing Mit*chell believes he has divine

    right to occupy he does not have either account for or explain his behaviour

    I am sure the VOTERS will keep this in mind !!

    If Mitchell were a bit smarter, here is how he could have played it:

    Mitchell: It is not against the law for me to think you are a cuпt, is it?
    Plod: No sir.
    Mitchell: OK. I think you are a cuпt.

    Cameron is a liar says:

    Miliband is of course wrong – you don’t need to swear at a police officer to end up in the back of a police car. I got arrested overnight by Islington police for peeing behind a bush.

    The sad thing about the Mitchell controversy is that although the chief whip obviously deserves all he gets, what he actually said rings true with many people’s experience of police behaviour in recent years. They’re thugs and yes they are plebs.

    Mitchell – Just do the right thing, bite your lip, and go. And remember in future, when you’ve had too much to drink, keep your own counsel and don’t demean yourself and any future office you may hold.
