A Short Note on Plebs & Andrew Mitchell
We’ve had a discussion on the issue this evening. I contend the word ‘pleb’ isn’t one that’s regularly used by police officers. Mike and I both agree it’s abundantly used in certain circles. I’m inclined to believe the officers. I very much doubt they pulled the word out of the air. It’s upper class slang. Or in Mitchell’s case, wannabe upper-class slang. He misbehaved, shamefully. Resignation wasn’t just appropriate, it was required.
