The Metropolitan Police have been accused of ‘deliberately provoking’ Tory MPs, with their choice of replacement officers to guard the gates at Downing Street.
With several regular officers from Number 10 currently engaged with helping other police avoid their enquiries, the choices of PC Pleb, PC Prole and PC Minion as replacements has raised a few eyebrows.
“I thought the police were supposed to be f***ing helping us”, complained semi-disgraced MP Andrew Mitchell, rather quietly. “If you ask me, choosing these three is just taking the p*ss.”
Mitchell has so far failed to gain access to Downing Street since the latest appointments, despite his best attempts to attract their attention by politely coughing.
