Perhaps now the police are beginning to get an insight into the contempt in which they are held by politicians. Let’s hope the police will in the future not be so ready to defend politicians who are the enemy of each and every one of us.
Andrew Mitchell’s previous form: (2010) Conservative M.P. Andrew Mitchell -MILLIONAIRE PARASITE CHARGES TAXPAYER 13p FOR TIPEX
Foul mouthed Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell has been forced to apologise after a shocking tirade in which he is said to have branded police “f*****g plebs”.
After armed police guarding Downing Street wouldn’t let him leave on his bike using the main gates – due to security reasons – off flew Mitchell into his expletive littered rant.
“Best you learn your your f*****g place. You don’t run this f*****g government.
“You’re f*****g plebs.”
A witness to the incident reported that Mitchell also labelled the police as “morons”.
Tactless multi-millionaire Mitchell is said to have received a stern talking to from David Cameron for the embarrassing incident, which comes just days after two police officers were murdered in Manchester.
Said Mitchell: “I was told I was not allowed to leave that way. While I do not accept I used the words that have been reported, I accept I did not treat the police with the respect they deserve.
“I have seen the supervising sergeant and apologised, and will also apologise to the police officer involved.”
Calls for Mitchell’s resignation have already begun.
“So I think Mr Mitchell needs to address his position and resign as soon as possible. Someone who holds such high office, and who apparently holds the police in such contempt, is not deserving of such high office and he should resign.” said John Tully, Chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation.
Where he goes or not, Mr Mitchell’s opinion is something for the police, and every other ‘pleb’ who happens not to be a cabinet minister and a multi-millionaire, to remember.
“You’re just f*****g plebs, you best learn your f*****g place, you don’t run this f*****g government.”
Tells you a lot about his attitude towards us mere mortals, namely the electorate.
