Damning evidence: Andrew ‘plebgate’ Mitchell thought police officer too beneath him to shake his hand

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tory Party!)

Sometimes the devil really is in the detail.

For me, the most damning testimony against Andrew Mitchell in the ‘plebgate’ libel trial was from another police officer – Inspector Duncan Johnston – who provided protection to Mitchell on visits to Kenya, Somalia and Tunisia.

Inspector Johnston gave a statement to the high court in which he said that the public school educated Tory minister refused to shake his hand when they first met:

mitchell pleb


Everything Mitchell said could be excused as a joke, or that it was taken out of context.

But refusing to shake the hand of someone who’s been tasked to protect your life – for the simple reason that you think they are beneath you – is inexcusable.
