What’s Dave going to do?
If the Channel 4 allegations the “Plebgate” affair are found to be accurate, and I for one found Michael Crick’s report convincing, then the PM will be under pressure to reinstate Andrew Mitchell to his old job as soon as possible.
The video material is without sound and no one can say for sure what words passed between the Ex-Chief Whip and the policemen.
What is hard to square from the available CCTV pictures is the police account that “several members of the public” were present who were “visibly shocked“.
No doubt betting markets will be opened on whether Mitchell will return.
