    Following your appearance on Newsnight’s Friday edition, you still seemed prepared to defend the police officers representing the police federation,and their statements after their meeting with Andrew Mitchell and the subsequent “No case to answer” issued by three constabulary chief constables, overruled an earlier investigation that there was a “case to answer.”
    A position at the time you were oblivious of and have asked for an explanation.
    As a member of the public who has followed the plebgate issue closely, I am quickly coming to the conclusion that the position of certain officers in your police force has become untenable.

    Only time before the full facts of this murky story are fully revealed, and the police claims begin to unravel in the scheduled parliamentary committee next week.

    I agree with spencer bunce – it is manifest to anyone with an OBJECTIVE eye that there was a conspiracy by federation representatives to further falsely discredit Mitchell, and then a similar exercise by their respective Chief Constables and Police Commissioners ! ” We must DENY the undeniable – we must DEFEND the indefensible ” !!! The duty of the Commissioner : ” Holding the Chief Constable to account ” – ? !!! – where is there the least evidence of THAT in this cess-pit of concerted misrepresentation, minimisation, manipulation and ‘back-covering’ – SHAME on the the LOT OF YOU/
