    But the police don’t lie, do they!

  2. 2
    Po --LICE says:

    Porkie pie plod

    Mitchell never said Pleb either

  3. 3
    Anonymous says:

    That does not sound serious?

  4. 4
    Sir William Wayde says:

    I thought everybody in the entire country had made a statement to the Taylor Enquiry.

    The Lodge says:

    Not joining his colleagues in perjuring themselves is a very serious matter indeed.

  7. 7
    Man who overheard him say it from 200 miles away. says:

    Yes he did.

  8. 8
    Mitch says:

    Areed. More stupid than sinister, which kind of sums the guy up.

  9. 9
    Bill Quango MP says:

    Nobody asked me. I never get asked. Its a conspiracy.

  10. 10
    Dodgy dossier and other things says:

    Can the BBC report that Saddam Hussain never had any complaints made about his police.

  11. 11
    Vince Incableable says:

    I don’t remember having a poor memory.

  12. 12
    Mitch says:

    What value could the Chief Constable add to the investigation, anyway? The problem was caused by decisions made in the heat of the moment.

  13. 13
    Mike Hancock CBE MP says:

    I faced two Police investigations, and I’m still at liberty (and taking liberties).

    The Grand Artificer is with us!

  14. 14
    I ask you says:

    White lie, little fib, small lie, big porkie ….. when does it become acceptable for a Policeman to lie? It doesn’t.

  15. 15
    Django says:

    Everyone lies!!! The trick is not to get caught.

  16. 16
    Let him who is without sin says:

    I assume you’ve never lied to your wife or children?

  17. 17
    Police Federation says:

    The police must be allowed to retire earlier on full pay.

  18. 18
    The windmills of my mind says:

    I’m sure the man will have made so many statements in his career that he could easily fail to recollect accurately whether he did or didn’t make one in some particular instance.

    Jack, the big black dick hunter says:

    My next excuse to Harriet.

    Police union - do as we say or we'll make up evidence says:

    Age 30 is about right.

  21. 21
    Reader says:

    I don’t remember when you didn’t have a poor memory.

  22. 22
    Mitch says:

    With this clown it’s entirely plausible that he ‘believed’ he had.

  23. 23
    Someone says:

    Good point. Was he even there?

  24. 24
    Vera says:

    so what was all that about the other day, all the ‘we know stuff you proles don’t’ you were running re: his resignation, is it this?

  25. 25
    Blair retired says:

    We can through gene cleansing, socio-economic factors and association links determine those personalities who will commit 90% of all crime. We must working with the Police round up these humans and so “deal with causes of crime”. There is no need for lies, just direct action.

  26. 26
    Reader says:

    Yes, it seems pretty thin doesn’t it?

  27. 27
    geordieboy says:

    High ranking plod = lying sod.

  28. 28
    Lord Stansted says:

    To my wife, no. I don’t have children

  29. 29
    John Smith says:

    Ahem..this is old news? I know our host is touchy about these things:


  30. 30
    200 miles away says:

    I heard it on the police Radio.

  31. 31
    Dromley on the HTC Big One says:

    I was searching on line for mine.

  32. 32
    Barrack-room copper says:

    Where’s the evidence?

  33. 33
    Police Federation says:

    Doesnt anyone here think about how these hateful comments affect day to day lodge life?

  34. 34
    The Alastair Campbell defence will be... says:

    “It was a very stressful time and I was suffering from alcohol dependancy and mental health issues!”

  35. 35
    Corner of The Yard says:

    Indeed. Most of them live on Benefit St. Or belong to ACPO.

  36. 36
    Jack Sparrow says:

    The bizarre thing about Mitchell supposedly saying Pleb is this.

    If this was a court of law then when it was discovered the witness on the spot wasn’t even there the whole case would have collapsed. Because its in the bitch Harman court of public opinion the fact that this whole affair is simply either made up or bending if the truth is ignored so long as Milliband, Labour, the BBC and the left can milk it for all its worth.

    Mitchell is in my view totally innocent and has always maintained a consistent story throughout. however the plod have been shown to have lied more than once changed evidence, bullied and briefed against Mitchell even after direct meetings. they should now be hung out to dry including this pompous commissionaire. If he had any respect he would already been reaching for the whiskey and revolver.

  37. 37
    Fly on the wall says:

    … Is that why he wears a string of paper clips on his lapels?

  38. 38

    You mean like 200 pissed scousers who started a riot ‘cos they were late for the kick-off?

  39. 39

    With Tony Blair’s expenses.

  40. 40
    The officer class says:

    Hear hear.

    Though there would not be a ‘e’ in the whisky, if he had any respect.

  41. 41
    John Smith says:

    That’s the Executive Summary right there. I live near Sheffield and nobody here thinks any different.

  42. 42
    Moran says:

    wibble wibble

  43. 43
    Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock 23 Railway Cuttings East Cheam says:

    So what if he called them Plebs thats what most of them are,they have not covered themselves with glory in the Met over the years.Most non Met police I know are fed up with the back teeth with them.

  44. 44
    Mitch says:

    It isn’t just about “the witness”, though. There were several people involved. Mitchell has admitted swearing to police officers, which is serious enough as it is.

  45. 45
    excuse watch says:

    Ali Bi-Curious?

  46. 46
    Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock 23 Railway Cuttings East Cheam says:

    Cetainl to be more than McFuckwhits 10k a month.

  47. 47
  48. 48
    Anthony Aloysius St John Hancock 23 Railway Cuttings East Cheam says:

    I hope this dosnt revive the whole Hillsborough thing again,I wouldnt be able to stand Rotherham,Berger or any other of those Liverpool troughing Labour Mps with their crocodile tears.

  49. 49
    Court Reporter says:

    Chief Insp Plod: I feared for my life m’lord

    Judge: understood, case dismissed

  50. 50
    excuse watch says:

    Swearing at the police is not that serious, especially with no members of the public withing earshot.

    They are not nuns.

  51. 51
    Mitch says:

    Interesting to compare that with how Walter Wolfgang was treated for heckling a cabinet minister, though?

    I think the phrase is: They can give it out, but they can’t take it.

    Mitchell deserved everything he got. He should shut up and get on with his life.

  52. 52
    Ernest Saunders says:

    I remember the days when Alzheimer’s coulld reduce a chap’s 5 year sentence for fraud to a mere 10 months.

  53. 53
    i don't n eed no doctor says:

    Are you sure you don’t mean an IQ of 30?

  54. 54
    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    Body Language:
    Hands may hold the self, such as when people hold their own hands, typically for comfort. Wringing the hands indicates more extreme nervousness.
    Holding the self can also be an act of restraint, this can be to let the other person talk, it can also be used when the person is angry, effectively stopping them from attacking.
    The tightness of a holding group indicates the degree of tension the person feels.
    People who are lying often try to control their hands, and when they are kept still (often holding one another), you might get suspicious.

  55. 55
    Diane Abbott says:

    The police should be whiter than white.

  56. 56
    The Prosecution says:

    We have a reliable witness, my Lord, in the form a member of the public, who says he read the crucual words etched into his toast at breakfast.

    He unfortunately smothered the toast with marmalade and ate it shortly after he saw the incriminating word “pleb” but as you can see from his twitter account, he tweeted about it while his memory of the events was still fresh in his mind, and as such we would ugre your |Lordshi[p to sentence Mr Mitchell
    to life imprisonment with no possibility of parole.

  57. 57
    (Rarely) Dangerous Brian says:

    But never too drunk or too depressed to miss an opportunity to get to the trough.

  58. 58
    Sir Mary Flappes says:

    Is he a fully trained police horse?

  59. 59
    ACPO & the Ploddo Union says:

    We speak with one purpose: Common Purpose!

  60. 60
    BBC says:

    Who cares whether he did or not?

    He’s a Tory so we’ll lie, smear and obfuscate.

  61. 61
    FFS says:

    He said he swore in front of them, not at them.

    In any case, the behaviour of just about every police office in the case was so bad as to be disgraceful. They deserve to be sworn at, in fact they deserve to be beaten with sticks in front of the general public:

    The police officers making the original complaint that had logs that didn’t match the complain tthey made.

    The police office that sent an email saying he had seen the whole thing when he wasn’t even in London

    The police officers that met with Mitchell in his constituency office and claimed he refused to talk to them when his own recording showed that he talked to them at length.

    Mitchel should get his job back and every one of those officers should be sacked. Then we should assume that most plod are just as corrupt as these examples and set up a group of “Untouchables” to go through the entire service with a fine tooth comb.

  62. 62
    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    Anyway, if you have got Altzeimers it follows that any sentence you get can never be longer than 5 minutes.

  63. 63
    smokey and the Rs bandit says:

    Are you saying he’s one of them thar funny boys?

  64. 64
    B£air's a B'stard says:

    If he is not a Common Purpose drone, then my name is Tony B. Liar and I’ll go directly to gaol and not collection £2 zillion pounds.

  65. 65
    The price of freedom is eternal vigilance says:


    Mitchell is the victim of a police conspiracy. You should be on his side unless you relish living in a police state, in which case you can fuck off now to North Korea.

  66. 66
    The price of freedom is eternal vigilance says:

    Walter Wolfgang did not heckle, he said one word “Nonsense” at the Labour party conference, and was then forcefully ejected by the Labour goon-squad.

  67. 67

    Thought that was what the job entails.

  68. 68
    Bl*ck Police Officer Assn says:

    We agree with our mate the Hippo.

  69. 69
    Say what you see (and I see a complete prick) says:


    Know the facts before your spout utter drivel and make yourself look a complete prick.

  70. 70
    Cinna says:

    Totally lost his grip on reality.

  71. 71
  72. 72
    Huw Jampton says:

    This isn’t what Guido was banging on about last week – it was something different . . . remeber when H-H was on ‘Ask the Met’ or whatever it was called? Guido asked ‘How’s the Missus?’.

    My money’s on Guido’s having something else on H-H : much more personal and closer to home that the Hillsborough stuff.

  73. 73
    Huw Jampton says:

    I must be going senile – I can’t even spell the word ‘remember’ properly nowadays. Sorry.

  74. 74
    Nemesis says:

    The Met Police are the worst force in the whole of Britain so it is appropraite to have somebody like Hogan Howe as their leader so they can carry on with their dirty work.

  75. 75
    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    And of course they lied about Duggan, lied about Tomlinson, led about de Menezes… ‘Dull it isn’t’.

  76. 76
    PC Gaye says:

    I heard it on the grapevine.

  77. 77
    Jim says:

    It detracts from the truth to suggest violence against these police officers. What they did was revolting and unreasonable, but who is going to prove their behaviour was criminal?
    It is the word of one man with an evil temper against an organised gang that has no integrity nor honesty.
    Just never be alone with a police officer.

    With a name like Hagen Daz did it have anything to do with his running an under age unlicensed ice cream parlour??

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.”
