Mitchell Throws Toys Out Pram

Departed Tory Chief Whip gave a coded hint about stress being brought upon his family if he carried on fighting, but it seems he’s having his own problems. A senior CCHQ source coughs this afternoon that Mitchell ‘is going bonkers’.

Apparently he’s been going around ‘mumbling about suing everybody.

You would have thought he’d learnt his lesson about where mumbling gets him…

    According to civil servants at the Department for International Development – run by Mr Mitchell, 56, until the Cabinet reshuffle earlier this month – his insistence on receiving VIP treatment while on foreign trips with his special adviser Philippa Buckley, sometimes backfired.

    ‘He liked to be the last passenger on board the plane, presumably so he didn’t have to get on with the plebs,’ said one.

    ‘Airline staff would get fed up with it and on at least one occasion he missed the plane as a result.

    They shut the gate and wouldn’t let him on. He was furious and had to get another flight.’

      Keep dressing in bizarro style like that and they’ll want to do hit-pieces on you when you’re dead. Trust me, I know about such things.

        I think the BBC’s coping strategy will be to dilute blame.

        e.g.

        The NHS have serious questions to answer
        What about the care homes?
        Magge Thatcher invited Saville to Christmas dinner
        It wasn’t just us…

        Were they all in it together, it has been going on in the Roman Catholic church far longer than the BBC has been in excistance, priests had power over their parishioners, and like in the case of Savile, if they had said anything who would have believed them

      Will that include the person who made the appointment ?

      after the Beeb spent about £300K+ on recruitment advisors

      The Chairman of the BBC (dis)Trust should also fall on his sword !!

      then an real independent chairmen brought in along with a new board

      PLUS a real independent DG for this stinking cesspit needs to be cleansed

      once & for all from top to bottom……plus the need for this Legalised extortion

      needs to be addressed BUT they need our consent as paramount the Beeb

      should be made legally accountable to us !!!

      The Beeb will find that very unpalatable,real democracy to them is like a filthy

      swear word like so much of the way the so called establishment views it.

    Every day its now demonstated there is no one in charge &

    least of all showing any signs of clear leadership……..

    This Coalition will not be allowed to stagger on from one crisis to

    another until 2015 ….the GE will have to be sooner rather than later

    although we will need the help of the almighty……

    As soon as the f word left his mouth and it was reported on he should have resigned that way he would have left government with sim dignity. But he decided to have a long drawn out death. I can imagine the fingernail grooves on his door as he was dragged out.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
