(Satire – barely)

 
The Prime Minister David Cameron has sought to refute accusations his party are out-of-touch snobs by cracking down hard on Andrew Mitchell, the Tory Party Chief Whip, for using a split infinitive during his tirade against police officers who were guarding Downing Street.
 
The change of heart comes after the MP for Sutton Coldfield admitted he had split the infinitive within earshot of the officers during the altercation when he allegedly said to them: 

 

You guys are supposed to fucking help us.”

 
Mr Cameron had initially stood by Mr Mitchell when it was first revealed he had sworn at the officers and called them ‘plebs’ but number 10 swiftly denounced his use of language when Mr Mitchell accepted that he had accidentally allowed himself to split the infinitive ‘to help‘ with the word ‘fucking‘ while addressing the officers.
 
Mr Cameron explained the reasons for the sudden about turn:
 

“It has become clear now that an openly split infinitive was used by Mr Mitchell – a situation which is completely unacceptable – and I would like to make it absolutely clear that this administration will not put up with any member of the government using such obscene language within earshot of hard-working police officers – even though they’re such plebs they probably don’t even know what a split infinitive is anyway.”

    Remember his name and watch the politics around to see how long it is before he is given another job of a similar standing, I say 18 months to 2 years before they bring him back after they give him some work doing something else of course.
