David Cameron is facing a crisis of confidence from his own MPs over the Andrew Mitchell affair, and is under pressure to sack members of his inner circle, reports the Sunday Times.
MPs from across the party have called on Cameron and George Osborne to shake up “the government machine”, claiming that many Downing Street aides were “teenagers” from public school backgrounds with no knowledge of business.
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.
