The chair of West Mercia Police Federation Ken Mackaill has said after meeting Chief Tory Whip Andrew Mitchell that he believes Mr Mitchell has no option but to resign.
Andrew Mitchell has no option to resign. We hold the view that that his position is untenable. If he does not resign, then Mr Cameron has no choice but to sack him.
David Cameron admits it 'became apparent' to the former Chief Whip that he could no longer do his job. So why was it not apparent to the PM?
Government Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell has resigned after swearing at police guarding Downing Street.
Losing one's temper with a police officer would be excusable in most people, but for the Tory chief whip to do means so much more.
