Conservative MP: 'Cameron should have sacked Mitchell'

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.
