Tory MPs tell Cameron to 'get a grip'

Conservative MPs have told David Cameron to "get a grip" and halt a string of unforced errors that have blown his Government off course.

They urged him to shake up his No 10 operation following criticism that he allowed Andrew Mitchell, who resigned as Government Chief Whip on Friday, to cling to his job for a month after he swore at Downing Street police officers.

Andrew Percy, MP for Brigg and Goole, said: "A lot of the problems we are facing at the moment are … stuff we have made ourselves."
