The Labour party ‘Plebgate’ website they no longer want you to see

by Stephen Tall on October 16, 2013

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…

Correct answer is 'neither, both are as corrupt as a 40 year old sandwich'

Whether he was guilty of being rude to policemen or not, former Conservative Chief Whip, Andrew Mitchell, should have known better than to argue with the policeman. Once upon a long time ago people in his position set a good example of behaviour to us lesser mortals. They can now hardly complain if our forelocks are no longer touched. Still he’s done OK. According to the FT he’s been appointed Senior Strategic Advisor to asset management company Investec for which he will be paid £60000 for ten days work a year. People who have had their lives blighted by banks & cuts will surely appreciate a just reward for talent. [ I originally posted this on 12th Oct – it’s still true.]
