Remember the famous words of President Clinton, who ducked and dived and twisted and turned semantically, over his pathetic attmeps to avoid guilt in a sex scandal? Andrew Mitchell’s behaviour took me back a few years. So the words attributed to him were not true? Well then, what did he actually say? Let him tell us, presumably after the 9pm watershed.
It is agony and cringeworthy to watch Andrew Mitchell cling on to his position. A hard day at the office ? So now we have an excuse for a bad behaviour. People in high places need to exercise extra control over their behaviour especially when under stress. Just resign Mr Mitchell and get it over with, instead of acting like a pleb.
