I was stitched up - ousted UK minister
The British cabinet minister forced to quit over accusations he called Downing Street police officers ‘plebs’ claims he has been ‘stitched up’ in his first full account of the furore.
The head of Scotland Yard Bernard Hogan-Howe meanwhile announced he had appointed a senior officer to handle the investigation and promised a ‘ruthless search for the truth’.
Former minister Andrew Mitchell said abusive phrases attributed to him had been ‘hung round my neck in a concerted effort to toxify the Conservative Party and destroy my political career’.
Mitchell who resigned in October as the government chief whip – charged with enforcing discipline among Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservatives – said he was hit with a ‘tsunami of vitriol’ following the incident.
Mitchell laid bare his account of the September 19 dispute and its aftermath in The Sunday Times newspaper, as he intensified efforts to clear his name and pave the way for a return to government.
Last week, police opened an investigation into a possible conspiracy against the former international development secretary after it emerged an email from a civilian witness backing up the claims had in fact been written by another officer.
Newly released CCTV footage also raises questions about the accuracy of the police log from that night, which was leaked to the press.
‘Suddenly I realised I was being stitched up,’ he told The Sunday Times.
Mitchell wrote in the broadsheet that he had been through the Downing Street front gates several times that week in September.
On this occasion however, the officer on duty told him to get off his bike and leave by the pedestrian exit. The officer was unmoved when he told him he worked there as the government’s chief whip.
So he did as he was told.
‘As I did so, I muttered – though not directly at him – ‘I thought you guys were supposed to fing help us.’
‘To which the policeman responded: ‘If you swear at me I will arrest you.’ Whereupon I cycled off. As I left, I think I said that I would pursue the matter further the next day.’
The alleged police log of the incident, leaked to newspapers, recorded Mitchell as saying: ‘Best you learn your fing place. You don’t run this fing government. You’re fing plebs.’
Scotland Yard police chief Hogan-Howe has broken off from his holiday to be briefed on developments.
‘For the avoidance of doubt, I am determined there will be a ruthless search for the truth – no matter where the truth takes us,’ he said in a statement on Sunday.
To show how serious he was, he added, he had appointed deputy assistant commissioner Patricia Gallan to lead the 30 officers on the case. Gallan’s brief covers professional standards in the force.
A police officer was arrested last weekend on suspicion of misconduct in a public office.
A 23-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of having helped him.
In this madhouse world
Where the beacons are blind
And the canopies succumb
My eager sprouting vines
I tend to escape away
Engage in a subtle espionage
For the quintessence of life
Does not crawl in the skin
Of this moiré perfection that
Idealism vied to wrought
Under our noses and
Beneath our roof beams.
A tatterdemalion meanderer
Of agog sole and yearning,
A goaded and fragile arsenal
Of words and contours
Slurring in surreal slopes
To defy and to define
My voraciousness for hope
A touch on its sterile skin
Chaste, clean and deceptive—
A blinded scheme of beauty
I am a stain, a blotch of blood
Like a maladroit red pyrotechnic
Scintillating eloquently in
The undulations of the water
So I trampled in a rendezvous
With the stale grandiose of bitterness
Ensconced in the trance and
Inveigles of cheap panaceas
To desperately dab the wounds
Of the flagrant destitution
And to extol the fumes that
Will hide the desiccation
Of an unrequited contending
And no one will have to know
That you are ousted from
The sunset of your own funeral.
Darkened and crunched
And putrefied without
A chance of exoneration
Because I cannot mourn with you
And dissect my lamentations
In your hands, for you have
Superfluous wrists of four
But only a single pulse
That cannot alter the beating
For a klutz waltz of death
If another wrist shall bled
And the sun went down
Dripping with a red star
Ousted from the sky.
This is how it works;
This is how we’ll subsist
When the Gods sequester
The bones and the morsels
From the aptitude of spirit
Ousted from their schemes
Their lives tight-roping seams
To live on without it and in

Upstart Leader in China Is Ousted From Party Post
Bo Xilai, the brash Communist Party chief of the Chongqing municipality in China’s southwest, has been removed from his post, an unmistakable sign that recent scandals in that city have put an end to his political ambitions and complicated the national leadership transition that will take place in the fall.
Until recently, Mr. Bo had been expected to join the all-powerful Standing Committee of the Politburo, a nine-member body that effectively runs the country. Seven of the members are to be replaced, and Mr. Bo’s demotion suggests there will be more drama in a usually secret process.
Daily SMH Moment (From 5/26/12)
Normally these SMH moments are taken from the previous day’s worth of sporting events. But since there were no worthy moments from yesterday, today’s story actually took place earlier this morning. Tennis’s second major of the season, the French Open, got started today, and already one of the biggest names in tennis is out. That would be Andy Roddick. Roddick is not nearly the talent that he once was, but he’s still one of the best Americans in tennis. Normally, the first round or two are fairly easy to coast through, but he got a rude awakening, losing 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-2 to 88th ranked Nicolas Mahut. And just like that, Roddick’s tournament is over.
As I mentioned before, Roddick is nowhere near the same tennis player that he used to be. He has fallen all the way to #26 in the rankings, and is not even the best American player anymore. So it’s tough to expect Roddick to actually be in contention in any major tournaments anymore. But still, nobody expected him to get ousted in the very first round against the #88 player in the world. Mahut of course is best remembered for his marathon Wimbledon match against John Isner a couple years ago. And now, he’s surprisingly advancing to the second round, and as a result, Andy Roddick’s legacy could at long last be coming to an end.
