Chief Whip hides = oxymoron

In what is shaping up to be the most tempestuous Tory conferences in half a decade, discipline is out of the window as Andrew Mitchell announces he is unable to attend in the wake of gate-gate. For the Chief Whip to be forced to hide under a rock is both a humiliation and a real problem for the PM. Mitchell apparently does not want to be a distraction.

Making the statement that the Chief Whip is 'not' going to the party conference is a distraction, so the strategy has already failed. The Chief Whip is responsible for discipline and behaviour and has a hard time with his own path.

It is going to take more than a pretty speech to pull this lot out of the ever deeper hole...
