FILE - A May 17, 2011 photo from files showing Government chief whip Andrew Mitchell arriving on his bicycle at Downing Street, London. The British Cabinet minister has apologized for an outburst in which he reportedly called police officers "plebs" — a derogatory term for the working class that has reinforced impressions of government elitism. Chief Whip Andrew Mitchell said Monday, Sept. 24, 2012, he didn't show the police the amount of respect he should have when an officer asked him to get off his bicycle to pass through the gates of Downing Street. However, he insists he didn't use the words attributed to him. (AP Photo/PA, Yui Mok, File) UNITED KINGDOM OUT NO SALES NO ARCHIVE
