The allegation a police officer falsely claimed to have heard Andrew Mitchell calling police "plebs" is "extremely serious", the Metropolitan Police say.

Mr Mitchell, who quit as government chief whip over the incident, has called for an inquiry, with friends arguing he should return to office.

A police officer was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of misconduct.

The Metropolitan Police said the issue went to the "very heart" of trust in police and promised to act "swiftly".

Hmm...seems our 'boys in blue' may have been telling a few porkies to end the career of a politician (with the help of the BEEB). Watch as damage limitation goes into overdrive.

Anyone else think that this whole situation is, well, ridiculous? Who cares what some politician said about the police. There are about a million issues FAR more important that need addressing, yet valuable media time is wasted on yet another idiot politician and his alleged comments.

Edit - that wasn't a dig at you for posting this btw, this is actually an interesting development if true. I was referring to the original story and how it was completely blown out of proportion.

he's luck the Met didn't simply shoot him.
sane, well balanced and appropriate reactons aren't the Met's forte.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

What a load of BS over nothing.  :(

(Maybe they're burying very bad news by filling the headlines with this pash.)

It's important because the police fabricated evedence that resulted in a very powerful man being removed from his job. If they can do that to the government chief whip what's to say they can't do it to joe public? And whats to say they havent been doing it for years?

I tend to agree with you. I too could never understand why this became so big a story bearing in mind that police all over the country are called far worse everyday of the week. Perhaps (as I suspect) it was just another opportunity by some to bring down a politician.

I edited my post to show that this was an 'interesting development'. In the first part of my post I was referring to the original story, not the abuse of power by police (I agree with your points). Thought I'd made that clear but I guess not.

So after the scandal which saw the Nasty Left villify a Conservative politician, blacken his reputation and upset his family by labelling him a paedophile only for it to be found that he had nothing to do with the charges, we now have another situation in which the Nasty Left attacked a Conservative politician and hounded him out of his job because they believe that he called a police officer a pleb only for it now to be turning out to be the case that all is not actually what it seems with this case and that CCTV evidence appears to corroborate Mr Mitchell's story and the "member of the public" who supposedly heard Mr Mitchell call a police officer a pleb was actually a police officer who was nowhere near the incident when it took place.

This is disgraceful, but I wouldn't expect an apology from the Nasty Left.

It was nice, though, to see Mr Mitchell getting a few pats on the back and words of support from fellow MPs - even Labour MP Gisela Stuart offered him her support - during PMQs today.

Yes, the BBC does seem to be lurching from one crisis to another everytime they try and bring down a Conservative politician. They were determined to keep this story in the news until they got the result they wanted & now hopefully it will come back to bite them in the a**, just like the Mcalpine debacle.
During this whole 'plebgate' story I never heard one person ask the question 'who told the press', & is it now standard police practice to go running to the news media whenever (if ever) somebody verbally insults them,? This whole thing was about the police 'having a go' at the coalition government.
