Do the Tories really view the majority of us as 'plebs'?

Post by sickchip on Sat Sep 22, 2012 1:04 pm

First topic message reminder :

In recent times Tories have been branded as being arrogant posh boys out of their depth. Andrew Mitchell's recent confrontation with a policeman, and the comments he allegedly made, seem to bear this out - despite Cameron's desperate attempts to rescue the Tories image from being tarnished by the occasion.

Their policies, and particularly those they target/punish via cutbacks, seem to bear the notion of class elitism out. They persistently punish the poor, and most vulnerable, with no regard for the hardship and impossible circumstances they place them in - on the other hand they continue rewarding the rich with ever more opportunities to avoid tax, get richer, etc.

It is the Tories who are responsible for waging a 'class war'.

Mitchell's outburst should not be dismissed as a 'fit of pique', temper, etc.......it was the mask slipping to reveal the odious nature of those currently governing us.

Another twist to the story?

Post by astradt1 on Wed Dec 19, 2012 5:28 pm

With the release of the Mitchellgate Video.......

Is it just me or does anyone else see big differences in the CCTV footage from inside Downing St and that out from out side in Whitehall?

Look closely at that from inside and you will see at least 5 people passing the gates at 'Mitchell is wheeling his bike towards the gate on the right hand side....But on that from outside there is only one person passing....so which bit of footage was taken at another time?

Most of the discussion on TV has been about that from outside?

Strange that the video is released the week that Miller is being looked because of Expenses and veiled threats over Leverson and Dave's party meeting with R Brooks?

Obviously crime in London must be at an all time low as the according to the Telegraph the Met Police have put 30 officers on to this investigation...

Scotland Yard on Wednesday opened a 30-officer investigation into whether there had been a police-orchestrated conspiracy to end the career of Andrew Mitchell, the Conservative Cabinet minister.

A letter to Conservative Home:


Elaine Turner · 1 day ago


Political life is rather a bitch at the moment. The MPs want to gag the press over Leveson (Clegg, Milliband and some Conservatives) so the press have it in for Ministers and are stalking them until a cock up occurs to smear them in the press. The Govt wants to cut back on police numbers and the budget, so the police also have it in for the Government. The press are also having a go at the police when it suits them and the police are also investigating the press.This is not unlike the game of scissors, paper rock. Who screws whom first.

Whichever way you look at this, three most trusted institutions, Parliament, the Press and the Police are all sullied and this has to stop. Stop playing games and get on with your jobs!

"...a police-orchestrated conspiracy to end the career of Andrew Mitchell..."

If there has been such a 'conspiracy' it was surely not solely connected to the bike incident. Who knows what hidden dirty tricks the 'relevant authorities' have had to endure from Mitchell , and which may have tempted some to take revenge.

If there is one thing which is certain about high-ranking Tories, it is that no sane person should ever trust them further than one could throw Eric ' Porker' Pickles...

I haven't seen anything yet that proves or even really suggests that Mitchell didn't say what the officer said - just that one or two officers were, er, over-enthusiastic in their zeal to vindicate themselves. None of the footage I've seen has sound or shows faces such that you can read what they're saying.

It's a shame of course for any police officer to try to fabricate evidence - but while it undermines their credibility it doesn't prove anything one way or the other, so we're all exactly where we were before.

Personally, I'd trust the word of even a bent copper over Andrew Mitchell, but maybe that's just me...

Well, quite. If my sister was meeting Mitchell , I would ensure that she wore gloves before shaking his hand.

Going back on topic Yes the tories do think of us as PLEBS, Landsley yesterday in the H.O.C. was asked by a Labour MP did he not think that in 2012 it was a disgrace that the low paid had to depend on Food Banks to feed there families, his reply that is how the Big Society should work and we should all be looking after one another because they have no Intension of and that bloody says it all it also shows how much of a BRASS NECK the tory party has.

The "bitter pill" is on David Cameron's silver salver. A number of his loyal Tory Members are calling for his blood because they think he didn't do enough to protect the impeccable Mitchell.

It turns out that Scam..er..on knew as he had viewed the CCTV from that night and not want to get on the wrong side of the police force, you know the ones who put their life on the line to protect him and Giddy Gideon, not that keen to save Mitchell which could mean he is not getting back into the cabinet.

Mitchell changed his story umpteen times but eventually admitted swearing at the police. One or two 'plebs' have done time for that, so let's not have anyone portraying Mitchell as oh-so-innocent.

"Mr Plod and the Forty Thieves"

Act One, Scene One. London 2012 The Gates across Downing Street.

Dancers enter USR dressed as the Laughing Policeman, waving their truncheons.

Dancers form a line across the gates. Leaning on their truncheons, legs apart.
Big Ben strikes thirteen. All look disturbed. Sing, in chorus,
"We shall not, we shall not be moved."

Enter DSL Baron Hardupp, wheeling bicycle with basket on handlebars. Mounts bicycle and rides unsteadily towards USC, stopping at line of Policemen.

BARON HARDUPP Make way there, don't you know who I am?

FIRST PC Not sure, Sir, are you the new window cleaner? The previous one knew that cyclists use the side gate.

BH Don't be so damn stupid, cunstable, I'm the Government Chief Whip.

PC Chief Whip? Do you know that Miss Whiplash well then, Sir?

BH exits USL pushing bike and speaking quite loudly over his shoulder.

BH Where now lies my glittering Political Career?

(AUDIENCE) It's BEHIND you!

CURTAIN

Acts 2 and 3 currently under examination by The Lord Chamberlain.

I don't know about anyone else but I have always thought that the Tory's have always considered the working class as 'plebs' so that doesn't bother me, I am more concerned that a Tory minister swore at police officers, how were doing their job and was not arrested like any other member of the public would have been....

The Tory's are now just using the #pleb' bit of the comment as the main reason for blackening the name of the Met Police.......

Anybody got Lloyd-Webber's home number?

The placid and imperturbable Mr. Mitchell takes up an inordinate space in today's Sunday Times to give an explanation of himself which would have been far more effective if it had been provided a couple of months ago.

But he still will not tell us what he did say and that OW says a lot, more than likely there is a lot of truth in what the police say, all the police have to do is not be too particular in the tories safety let them protect themselves. cheers

Thank you OW but with the amount of sweary words that I have said since this gov't came into power I doubt that I have a place in heaven after sinning my soul so much, as for a job on the front benches of this gov't NO THANK YOU however I would not mind a job on the front benches of a Labour gov't, then I would take my revenge on the Tories and I can assure all on here that I would give them a taste of their own NASTY MEDICINE
