Massive Tory fail: Andrew Mitchell didn’t know what the minimum wage is

Andrew Mitchell on his bike: His previous claim to fame was calling a Downing Street policeman a “pleb” (allegedly).

Not only that; he didn’t know the housing waiting list has topped 1,200,000 – but he does own three houses himself.

Fortunately Victoria Derbyshire was in the driving seat (for once, Mr Mitchell wasn’t on his bike), and was able to put him straight.

And guess which party has quietly backtracked on its latest offer to build more social housing?

Tories. They have no idea about the damage they have caused.

And they don’t care.

They just can’t wait to inflict even more.

There’s only one answer to this kind of ignorance.

Vote Labour on Thursday.

    These people don’t live in the real world! This is disgraceful but these people have no shame. Out of touch doesn’t even come close! M.P.s are obliged, my poop! You can rent, you don’t have to buy! The Green Book (before the Expenses Scandal) said that you can claim expenses in £ondon, if you’re “main” home (I contend that you have only one home) is in your constituency. If your main home is in £ondon, you may claim expenses in your constituency. If your main home is in neither £ondon, nor in your constituency, you may choose and flip, once a year. There is nothing about owning property, let alone being obliged. You’re a greedy, Tory, opportunist! How can you claim to represent people when, clearly, you have no interest in them? SHAME! Och, you have no concept of what that is!

    The arrogant, foul-mouthed Mitchell. I thought we had seen the back of this odious pleb.
