Conservative MP Philip Davies has said that the Andrew Mitchell affair had been badly handled and he should have quit sooner.
He told the Sky News Murnaghan programme:
Andrew Mitchell should have resigned, I think when he didn't resign the Prime Minister should have sacked him.
I was thinking he should go, he has gone, he's done the right thing. David Cameron's loyalty to him was commendable, if misguided. I'm certainly not going to kick a man when he's down, he's done the right thing.
