Andrew Mitchell faces the inevitable

Two days ago I sent this tweet:
This evening, in his resignation letter, Mitchell wrote:
Over the last two days it has become clear to me that whatever the rights and wrongs of the matter I will not be able to fulfil my duties as we would both wish.
I am not gloating over his fall - the Police Federation has not won my admiration over this affair - but he really was a fool.

A chief whip should be a largely anonymous figure, working behind the scenes. Francis Urquhart is a good role model.
