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.

Surely Mitchell is a Spiv?

As we have recently had governments that have politicised the police then necessarily the police will become political to the extent of wanting to have a say in who governs.

"Surely Mitchell is a Spiv?" No, its Roman. the order is Patrician, Plebeian, Prole. Mitchell is a prole.
