Motive is the true test.

EITHER chief whip Andrew Mitchell or the police are lying about him swearing and using words like "pleb".

It's easy to see Mitchell's motive for lying. He doesn't want to be disciplined or have to resign.

But why would the police lie? Some dark political conspiracy targeting Mitchell and the Tory Party? When I compare motives, it's clear to me Mitchell is telling fibs. Mark Davidson, Glasgow IF my husband swore at police, he would be arrested and charged.

But it seems there's a rule for us and another for politicians.

Andrew Mitchell's apology is an admission of guilt. But it will be brushed under the carpet as usual. Mrs Martin, Lanarkshire
