Steve Coogan: Tories' 'pleb management' policy


Jacob Rees-Mogg has said that "people in public life should show good manners to the electorate and the police are part of that electorate".

The Conservative MP was speaking on Question Time in the aftermath of the accusation that Conservative Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell insulted police officers in Downing Street. Mr Mitchell has denied that he used the word "plebs" but apologised for his lack of respect.

Comedian Steve Coogan responded by suggesting that some modern Conservative MPs disguise their real thoughts and modify their language in public.
