Mark Field
He has referred himself to the Cabinet Office for investigation but was this assault and should it be referred to the police?

Has Nigel Farage popped up to condemn it, or is that just reserved for jokes he doesn't like?

To be fair she could have had a bazooka.

Maz 21-06-2019 07:25 AM

I cannot imagine it should be a police matter.

It comes down to using reasonable (or maybe unreasonable) force to remove trespassers, and that’s a fine line in this instance.

Itís a complete non story IMHO. He did nothing wrong. In fact he stepped up to the plate when everyone else was just sitting there.

Aye. I'm normally in favour of Tory bashing, but if the protester was a guy or a member of staff had done the same thing instead of him no one would have batted an eye.

Agree itís a non-story but his excuse ofďInstinctivelyĒ is a bit pony.

Wonder what his instinct would have been if it was a bloke.

....and if the woman rushing the top table had drawn a knife and stabbed someone, people would be asking why no one stood up and tried to stop her. I am no fan of politicians but to accuse Mark Field of assault is ludicrous.

An MP on 5live defended him by saying she may have had 'an extendable truncheon'. Of all the possible weapons she may have been carrying, that's not one I'd have guessed at.

Vicmo 21-06-2019 07:56 AM

It's not a good look but she had broken in and was rushing towards the Chancellor and it's an extreme climate these days with nutters everywhere with extreme views (just think of Joe Cox). Marching her out was a bit far but my question would be how did they get in there with the amount of security which is attached to Phillip Hammond, let alone any other ministers.

rhino_mik 21-06-2019 08:00 AM

I don't think it was at all reasonable. It was obviously not a violent protest and she was clearly not armed. He could have stood up and blocked her but there was absolutely no need for that level of aggression.

Nth Kent Eagle 21-06-2019 08:01 AM

His behaviour was a bit over the top in my view but with the threats from so many different groups at the moment security has to be tightened.

old git 21-06-2019 08:03 AM

Any reasons given to how they got in?

averity 21-06-2019 08:04 AM

Better ways to protest, not trespass whilst doing it would be one, got what she deserved. Shame itís even news

spt1978 21-06-2019 08:04 AM

Is that an alarm going off in the background? Looks like a storm in a teacup to me.

Eco friendly lipstick.

She was wrong to invade and peacefully protest their nice dinner. But he was worse. That's clearly assault he throws her into the wall and grabs her neck.

So many people saying if it was a man it wouldn't have been an issue.

It wouldn't have been an issue because Mark Field would not have done it if it was a man. Unless it was someone he could easily manhandle and then its still assault. Its a guy with clear anger issues who shouldn't be in parliament if he reacts that way to a peaceful protest.

Well done that man !!!
