Proportionate policing

Yes, folks, it’s Schlock! Horror! time again with the Sunday papers.

You may detect some political bias when one sweary ex-Cabinet Minister outnumbers 3,200 blacklisted workers


By the way, Andrew Mitchell reported himself, just a few days ago, to have suffered “An extraordinarily difficult year”.


However, his difficulties may since have been eased, as noted by the Financial Times:

Andrew Mitchell, who stood aside as Conservative chief whip after being accused of calling a policeman a “pleb” outside Downing Street, has found a new job as a consultant to Investec, an asset management company.

Mr Mitchell, a former Lazard banker, will take on the role as “senior strategic adviser”, which involves 10 days’ work a year, for which he will receive £60,000.

Allowing for an unlikely 8-hour working day, that’s £750 an hour.
