+ + + Andrew Mitchell Resigns + + +

Tories are having an absolute mare of a day. This has to be the first time anyone has sworn in resignation to the PM:

Well that should kill the Osborne story…

UPDATE: What did it for Mitchell?

This was denied on Thursday, despite Guido’s witnesses.

Sunday papers were also getting very close on another aspect of Mitchell’s life…

    So now he doesn’t have any power is he now cast down amongst the rest of us Plebs? Because lets be honest “The Right Honorable” is a bit of a stretch for most MP’s.

    WTF !!! I’ve only just jumped on the Osborne ticket bandwagon !!! FFS !

    it was a dark and stormy night says:

    Why should Mitchell have to resign for telling the truth, the majority of plods are plebs, example tazered for thinking a white stick was a jap sword, good grief stories like that are common, all you have to do is take a look at your local plods.

    Utter madness. Who hasnt had a moan about the Police on occasions.
    When I think of the corrupt gittish things many other MPs have done and this unfortunate man, who by the way was using green peddle power has to resign over some stupid arse jobsworthy copper.
    The worlds gone bloody mad.

    Malcolm Redfellow says:

    Kill the Osborne story? Not a chance!

    This has to be the killer (from The Guardian site):

    [Townsend] later said: “George Osborne got on the train with aides at Wilmslow and went straight to first class. Then his aide approached the ticket collector right next to me. He said he is travelling with George and he has a standard ticket but can he remain in first class? The guard said no. The aide said Osborne couldn’t possibly sit in standard class. The guard replied saying if he wants to stay it’s £160. The aide said he couldn’t pay and he couldn’t really sit in standard. The guard refused to budge. The guard went on gathering tickets and later told me Osborne had agreed to cough up the £160.”

    BBC sees a glimmer of hope says:

    Dear goodness, he had to resign – he was rude to a police person. How much worse could it have been – it was not as if he started a couple of wars, or sold all the gold reserves for some magic “Euro” beans, or started a run on Northern Rock, or presided over the execution of a Brazilian electrician, or spent 12bn on an NHS IT system that never worked or systematically abused the expenses system or, or, or, or

    WTF!!! The BBC has some “Balls” with this one. Rude to a proleiceperson. If only he had been Raysist then we could have hanged him from a lampost

    Would any of us be capable of putting up with the daily attacks we have seen from the press , media and the Police Federation. All of whom have their own agenda. Personally I have never seen such vilification of a politician and it seems to me that the lunatics are now in charge of the asylum. If the media didn`t get the message pre Leveson they certainly will after he makes his recommendations. They have brought everything upon themselves. It is obvious that they are incapable of regulating themselves.

    Always felt the police report taken from the officers notebook contained an eloquence seldom [in fact never] previously seen in an officers notes..
    Stitch up from the police, Labour and the interested section of the press and media willing to work as a 5th column to unseat the present government.
    That Mitchell has fallen on his sword and spared the police in their present disarray counts for a lot in my book.
    After the riots, Hillsborough, Northern grooming etc etc their name, already mud would have been totally destroyed.

    Am i alone in thinking the way the labour party, press and the police federation have behaved over this has been a disgrace ? Andrew Mitchel has been hounded out of office, and we pride ourselves on being a democracy ! stand by now for the likes of Nick Robinson to be outside parliament, giving us a precis of events in his ever so regret ful tone of voice. Well done, next you can embarass the Prime minister by making him divulge private e mails. The mother of Parliament.

    ex Labour PM TB has stated that he is all about public service. The question for lovers of TB is “By being an enabler for Jimmy Savile, did the BBC provide a public service?

    “the BBC is to air a special edition of Panorama, looking into the issues surrounding Savile’s years of alleged abuse, on BBC One at 20:30 BST on Monday.”

    In years gone by, Miliband and the likes would have been dragged into a studio and challenged to justify their allegations. They would have been been given a thorough going-over; they would have been confronted by their hypocracy. The Mitchell thing would have been treated for what it is: politicing.

    Not now. The BBC give these c’unts a free pass to say what they want; do what they want.

    I feel, that this media game has resulted in something quite dangerous and anti democratic. Irrespective of what you think of Mitchell, we, as a country, could come to regret what happened today.

    The Police, of course, never lie.

    Although, to quote Billy Connolly :-

    “Do you think I could leave you lying

    When I could lie my head off too

    If somebody squaks in the witness box

    I’ll cover up for you

    I’ll tell a pack of lies, pull the wool over their eyes

    The way the sergeant taught us to

    Before you count to three we’ll be off scott free

    We’re two little boys in blue “

    What really pisses me off is that we had a 1million bung from Bernie to the Labour party on fag advertising,cash for honours, an illegal war,Prezza shagging his secretary at work,Jacqui claiming for porn videos,Labour Lords caught on the phone offfering to change legislation for 100k bungs,Baroness Scotland hiring illegal help,dodgy dossiers and intelligence,convicting the innocent at the Hutton enquiry and hounding an eminent scientist to commit suicide, etc etc and all they can pin on Mitchell is he swore at the plod and even if he did say “Plebs” which he denys when are half the Labour Party resigning for calling the Tories “Toffs” which if my grammar is correct is as pejorative as the word pleb in reverse?

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
