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…

    ‘is going bonkers’

    I thought the phrase was “is going Gordon” ;)

    Is he describing The Home Sec. In that photo?

    Gated says:

    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.’

    What’s this got to do with last night’s Pan Aroma?
    I blame the chicken vindaloo and 6 pints of lager.

    Engineer says:

    Not all are when first elected. It takes a couple of parliaments for some of them to get there.

  21. 21

    I think you’ll find if you think of it the other way round, it all starts to make sense.

  22. 22
    Sniper says:

    Institutionally plebist.

  23. 23
    Engineer says:

    If he makes a habit of wearing jackets like that, he should never have been appointed to the shadowy, background, publicity-avoiding job of Chief Whip.

    Plod should have nicked him for wearing a loud jacket in a public place.

  24. 24

    If you meant that last bit the way it was typed, I’m feeling nauseous.

  25. 25
    Engineer says:

    No. Let this one drag out. The Beeb gloated for months over the Catholic Church’s difficulties with kiddy-fiddling. Time for the Beeb to take the same medicine.

    He need a good whipping.

    UKIP convert says:

    Ha ha ha Nothing like having someone, now ejected outside of the Tent

    who wishes to continue pi*ssing, as much as, possible on it….

    That will do the now very tainted Tory brand even more damage…..

    Looks like another out of touch call by CMDDD when he said

    Effing Mitchell was welcome to stay in situ & see it through…..

    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……

    if Ed whats it name & his shower get back in……

    If only the Spitting Images Show was still being broadcast……!!!

    with all of this material being made available everyday…..

    What would that do for ITV’s viewing figures & Ad’s revenue…..

    “…stress being bought upon his family…”

    Mitchell looks like one of those blokes who likes a selection of chutney when confronted by youths on scooters

    Quick get the fashion police! says:

    They should arrested for poor taste in fashion. What a couple geeks!

  33. 33
    A hard Pressed TV Tax Payer says:

    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.

    Old Tory Bigot says:

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


    The NHS have serious questions to answer
    What about the care homes?

    To they wander the streets (of North London) asking passers by

    “excuse me, do your read the Guardian?”

    “Oh cool – you do!”

    “ok, would you like to answer some polling-type questions?”

    Plodder says:

    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.
    He would have been respected if he had gone ASAP.

    by CMDDD……..he has many questions to answer over his (mis)judgement

    When your the PM, you lead from the front, BUT keep your ear close to the

    ground so to speak & be aware what the public wants

    This guy doe’s not have the ability to organise a Pi*ss up in a Brewery…..

    the real very scary part is the so called opposition who should have all

    been barred from re-election & brought before the courts !!!

    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

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
