How the Plebgate footage doesn’t show what Mitchell & C4 claim

Well, it’s taken a long time but a court has agreed that disgraced Cabinet minister Andew Mitchell did indeed say what the officers at the Downing St gate recorded that he did.
About time. It’s also time that the misrepresentation and selective release of the footage by media and government was similarly acknowledged and exposed.
Channel 4’s ‘Dispatches’ programme claimed that the police account of witnesses etc couldn’t be true, based on selective editing of already-selectively-released footage.
The SKWAWKBOX showed almost 2 years ago that the claims were untrue and now the court’s recognition of Mitchell’s behaviour shows the analysis was correct. Search ‘plebgate’ on the blog for more footage and analysis.
