In the grown up world, two people may have an altercation. There will be harsh words exchanged. Later, when cooler heads prevail, one or both may well apologise for their intemperate behaviour and that is the end of it.
The Police Federation and Labour both want an inquiry, while some Lib Dems were unimpressed by the statement.
Okay, so anyone who has read my witterings here and at my own place will be aware that I hold no torch for politicians – hang the lot and I won’t shed a tear – but for fucking fuckitty fuck’s sake already; Andrew Mitchell may be an arrogant arsehole, but he has apologised. Any grown adult would accept that as this was no more than a minor altercation, that should have been the end of it days ago. But here we are still going on, and on, and on about it. And some lackwits want a fucking inquiry? As if we have the money to waste – oh, yeah as it’s our money they are perfectly happy to waste it as there’s always more where that came from. Silly me.
Jeebus! Look, two people had an argument. Who gives a flying fig who was right and who was wrong? It was a non–incident. There are important things going on in the world. This isn’t one of them, yet the media is making a meal of it, political parties are trying to make capital out of it yet at the bottom of it all, someone called someone else a silly name and may or may not have used naughty cuss words.
FFS, grow up, people.
