Andrew Mitchell's case today is that there is simply not enough time for the account given by police to have taken place. Here is the police account:
Mitchell: "Best learn your f-----g place. You don't run this f-----g government. You are f-----g plebs."
Police Officer; 'Please do not swear at me sir, if you continue to, I will have no option but to arrest you under the public order act.'
Here is the footage from around the time Mr Mitchell’s supporters claim the conversation must have started.
Judge for yourselves.
Andrew Mitchell says he has been "stitched-up" by police whilst one officer was charged with misconduct in relation to the ongoing scandal.
Today's charges come more than a year after the events that led to the end of Mr Mitchell's career. Here is what has happened since.
