Here’s the key question Labour was asking a few months ago: Who do you trust? The Police or Andrew Mitchell?
According to an official police report, Conservative Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell said to a police officer:
“Best you learn your f***ing place … you don’t run this f***ing government … you’re f***ing plebs.”
Andrew Mitchell is denying it. But he won’t admit what he said. And David Cameron is choosing to believe the word of a Tory MP over the word of a hard-working police officer.
But, strangely, when you visit http://www.labour.org.uk/plebsforpolice today that question’s no longer being asked…
That’s the risk of leaping on the Milibandwagon, I guess…
