"Best you learn your fucking place. You don’t run this fucking government. You’re fucking plebs."

What Andrew Mitchell, the chief whip of the United Kingdom’s Conservative Party, allegedly said to a security officer after the officer told him he couldn’t ride his bicycle through the front gate of Downing street and instead would have to go through a side gate.

Also, in case, like me, you didn’t know what a pleb was, according to Al Jazeera, a pleb is “used by wealthy, upper class people as a form of insult against poor, working class people. It’s very rude. It’s very condescending. It’s derogatory. And it’s confrontational. Calling someone a pleb means they are not worthy of your respect because they’re too poor. “
