Cabinet minister: Police are plebs
Chief Whip’s rant just one day after cop killings
A MILLIONAIRE Cabinet minister was threatened with arrest after an astonishing foul-mouthed rant at armed cops in Downing Street.
Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell — newly-promoted by PM David Cameron — raged: “You’re f***ing plebs.”
The cycling Tory’s outburst came the day after two women PCs were shot dead.
Foul-mouthed Mr Mitchell yelled the four-letter abuse at cops because they wouldn’t let him pedal his bike out of Downing Street.
He exploded with fury when armed police guarding No10 refused to open the street’s famous gates.
The PC targeted by the tirade reported to his superiors that Mitchell told him: “Best you learn your f***ing place. You don’t run this f***ing government.
“You’re f***ing plebs.”
An eyewitness said Mr Mitchell, 56, also branded them “morons”.
