Tory MP: Mitchell has 'done the right thing for the party'

MPs have been taking to Twitter to react to Andrew Mitchell's resignation as Chief Whip.

Stephen Mosley is a Conservative MP:


Sad to hear Chief Whip has resigned esp since he was such a great Int Dev Minister, but I think he has done the right thing for the Party.

John Woodcock is a shadow transport minister:


Manner of Mitchell resignation underlines how weak PM and Chx have become. Wonder if conference speech enough to stave off internal unrest.
