We all know the Liberals are simply playing ‘tug my lock’ to their Lords and Master Tories, but Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell has presented them with an ideal opportunity.

The Tories are bang to rights with the ‘pleb’ comment, and it is now down to Clegg and co how they handle this. The public know he should be sacked, but the tories look as though they are standing by him.

Clegg should now demand he be removed from office or they will dissolve the coalition, but has he got the bollocks?
