“Pleb and buried”; “On yer bike”; “Great train snobbery”… Mitchell, Osborne, avert your eyes!

Saturday's #PlebGate front pages make uncomfortable reading for Andrew Mitchell and George Osborne... Enjoy!


Energy policy on the hoof, Osborne’s first class f- up, Mitchell suddenly, surprisingly, after four weeks of dither, throwing himself under the train… Armando Ianucci, take a break; The Thick Of It has truly come to life.

You imagine it could only get worse for the Tories if David Cameron appeared on the steps of Number 10, and said, very slowly, in his plummiest, public schooliest voice:


He’d only be saying what we think they’re thinking…

As you’re here, we have something to ask you. What we do here to deliver real news is more important than ever. But there’s a problem: we need readers like you to chip in to help us survive. We deliver progressive, independent media, that challenges the right’s hateful rhetoric. Together we can find the stories that get lost.

We’re not bankrolled by billionaire donors, but rely on readers chipping in whatever they can afford to protect our independence. What we do isn’t free, and we run on a shoestring. Can you help by chipping in as little as £1 a week to help us survive? Whatever you can donate, we’re so grateful - and we will ensure your money goes as far as possible to deliver hard-hitting news.

    In the life of any government there is a day, which it never manages to shake off, for this government it was yesterday.
