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?
