Former Government whip Andrew Mitchell faces £3MILLION bill after libel judge decides he DID call police 'f****** plebs' - because the officer lacked the 'wit or imagination' to make it up

Tory MP Andrew Mitchell is facing political and financial ruin after losing his £3million Plebgate libel trial yesterday.
A High Court judge ruled that the former Cabinet Minister did call police officers ‘f****** plebs’ when they refused to let him cycle through the main Downing Street gate in 2012.
Mr Justice Mitting described the MP’s behaviour on the night as ‘childish’ and said his version of events was inconsistent with CCTV footage. He said Mr Mitchell probably did not remember using the ‘politically toxic phrase’ because he was too angry.
