After getting his axe out to The Pilgrims in Birmingaham there's a major rumour in the press this afternoon that Cameron is all set to reward Francis Maude with a promotion to Tory Party Chief Whip.

Bookies this afternoon smash their odds on Mitchell going, tbg. thinks its about time too, he called a couple of coppers "fucking plebs" for crying out loud!

It's a shame Cameron wasn't decisive on this and made an example out of Mitchell. Broken Britain indeed.

UPDATE: Cabinet Office forced into issuing statement about Maude.

Latest rumours say Mitchell out and Maude in tomorrow.
