No longer tenable?
On Friday the West Midlands Police Federation said Andrew Mitchell had “no option but to resign” after a meeting with the chief whip.
Excuse me, but since when did the police force decide who should be in the government, or in this case, the chief whip of a political party?
I have no particular fondness for Mitchell although I know his former MP father, who is a nice guy and a complete plonker in equal measure, but the police are forgetting their status, which as everybody knows is plebeian, less than patrician but higher than the proles.
Mitchell is of course a total prole.
