Some commentators are lamenting the demise of Andrew Mitchell in the UK, one in particular provides a particularly gay excuse:
The Mitchell Affair has set a precedent and it has also sent a message to every trade union, professional association and special interest group in the land: when you have the minister on the ropes, keep at it. Stamina will be rewarded.
Of course you should. Chippie should not back off telling the truth about Hekia and holding her to account. Politics is about delivering heads and Chippie is going the right way about it. If Queen Hekia can’t get the better of the boy wonder then she deserves to be metaphorically pushed under a bus.
Others like the political special olympics competitor Trevor Mallard, need to stop being morons and start holding opponents feet to the actual fire, rather than manufacturing crises that have no basis in fact.
