Judge Bins Much Mitchell Evidence

plebgate-mitchell-sun

Over at the Royal Courts of Justice the judge – Mr Justice Warby – ruled that 9 of Mitchell’s 16 previous incidents with police officers were admissible as evidence. A blow to Mitchell who tried to block the evidence being put before the Court. It got worse for Mitchell, he also banned the former Chief Whip from discussing “reputational damage, hurt feelings and the effect generally on Mr Mitchell of the Plebgate affair” at the upcoming trial.

Mr Justice Warby said evidence from Mitchell’s chums; Lord Coe, Sir Richard Ottaway MP and others expressing doubt Mr Mitchell would ever use the word ’pleb’, would be permitted. Submissions about Metropolitan Police officers creating fake witnesses were refused.

Miliband Puts Twitter Whingers Above Our Boys

Ed Miliband is the only party leader who has refused to wear a Help for Heroes wristband on the front page of today’s Sun. Guido cannot understand why he couldn’t just tell Labour’s anti-Murdoch brigade that he was putting politics aside for a good cause. Anyway, in his absence, here is an artist’s impression of what it might have looked like if Miliband had swallowed his pride:

That wouldn’t have been so hard, would it?

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
