Not even horseplay.
Whitty looked uncomfortable, but he wasn't called any names.
The police are too busy to bother with stuff like that.

They're making a fuss because it's one of theirs.
Why should the police protect them, when they don't protect us.
That kind of thing is a result of the society they have created.

Yes that's him, Chis Whitty the Chief Medical Officer.

He's been approached in the streets before by members of the public.

I'd have been happy to tell him he's ruining the country to cover his own ass, and left it at that.

This kind of thing is an occupational hazard for celebrities living in a lawless place like the UK.

Whitty might consider s disguise when he goes walkabout, such as a mustache or dark glasses.

Or he could wear the usual gear for St James's Park, which is a macintosh and a pair of binoculars.

Will he have to self isolate after getting hugged by strangers? The miscreants will need to be tested.

or the disgrace of the east end of london  and more  - no one appears to care about the slaughter and stabbings on the streets here

Something not right about this.

Media and celebrities quick to condemn it, like he has been beaten to  pulp.

Such poor quality filming. When are videos this bad nowadays?

Police van parked up in background.

And would one of the most known, and controversial government figures  despised by many, be walking around alone amongst the public.

Just intial thoughts.

Whitty he says he doesn't want the matter to go any further.

Well good for him.

In contrast to the boy Jones, who following an incident which involved him, was active bellyaching over it in the media.
That resulted in people being prosecuted.

There you go, no mention of homophobia in the verdict.

Same with the other two.

He managed to get one of them jailed.
Most people would have let the incident go.

I wonder if any benefit is gained
by publicising these incidents.

Like a virus, some idiot will seek
to replicate the incident so
he can gain applause from his/her
peers.

I do hope if somebody decks them
they will accept it in good grace.

One of the rowdies has lost his job over the incident.

With no formal complaint being made by Whitty, and no police action seeming likely. A breach of employment law might have happened.
Unless he's been warned before over his conduct, which would weaken his case.

Recorder Anne Studd QC said she would sentence Healy on the basis that the attack had been due to Mr Jones's "widely published left-wing and LGBTQ beliefs".

fcrippen got his quote from the mirror

After a two-day hearing to determine Healy's motive, Recorder Judge Anne Studd QC previously found the unprovoked attack could only be motivated by Mr Jones's media profile as a left-wing polemicist.

he missed out the next sentence -

She added: "I therefore propose to sentence Mr Healy on the basis that this was a wholly unprovoked attack on Mr Jones by reason of his widely published left-wing and LGBTQ beliefs by a man who has demonstrable right-wing sympathies."

Whitty should have been nowhere near the TV or media
He's a sociopathic ghoul who has caused a great deal of misery and suffering

The reaction to this has been astonishing. It was clearly unpleasant as Whitty was uncomfortable, but evidently not malicious. If you believed the narrative, you'd be forgiven for thinking Whitty was violently assaulted.

It's up to the employer who they employ.
And we don't know this employee's history.

Perhaps the person here wasn't very good at his job and the employer jumped at the chance of dropping him.

In contrast had he been an essential part of the business, I doubt if he would have been sacked over that.

Any employer who worries more about what his employees do in their spare time, and less about how they perform at work should have a rethink.

It's the now infamous phrase cancel culture. If tw@tter and mainstream media jury deems someone is guilty of offending polite society, employers now rush to distancing themselves from them. He is guilty of being an idiot, that does not usually mean someone deserves to lose their livelihood.

I agree Cider.

The society we live in is becoming increasingly nasty.
soft on serious crime, and heavy handed on what was once considered trivial.

The same people happy to see him lose his job would be typically those virtue signalling about compassion, forgiveness, kindness and empathy.

Would you, for instance like to see anyone stopped carrying a knife in London sacked from their job? Assuming they have one, which is a stretch tbf.

If people think minor misdemeanours like this should result in the loss of livelihood, fine. Let's just see that policy applied equally across the board.

On this basis, should Hancock have been sacked ?
By:

Absolutely, I posted so before he resigned. Boris has been wrong headed in his ott criticism of this incident, and initially accepting Hancock's apology and 'closing' the case.

No, he is making the law, and dictating the guidance. And willingly broke it, flaunted it even you could argue on government property.

Losing the SoS position is proportionate, he won't lose all of his income obviously. Arguably he should be subject to a by election.
