Mitchell 'Did Call Officers F**king Plebs'

Just when you thought it was over, one of the Plebgate cops has this morning given an interview to the Times insisting Mitchell did call officers “f**king plebs”. Ian Richardson was the first person to speak to the officer who claims Mitchell used the word:

“I said ‘Write that down and ring the skipper because you just threatened to arrest the Chief Whip in Downing Street — there’s likely to be some problems’.”

Which was prescient, to say the least…

Richardson blames the Police Federation for using the Downing Street policemen’s story for their own political ends and the bent cop who wrote up a false witness account, saying that despite all this the original account is correct. This might be closer to the truth than a lot of what else has been written about Plebgate…
