The most surprising thing about that video is that the youths were in the midst of Police and Security, yet they stood by and did nothing. Surely they are there to prevent such Breaches of the Peace?

I'm talking about milkshakes and non violent protest, not bricks.
A milkshake is not a non-violent protest, it's an assault.

Given the acid attacks over the last couple of years, having any liquid thrown over you is going to cause severe anxiety.

TBH I hadn't thought about the connection/implications of the acid/chemical throwing and the potential fear/worry that throwing anything liquid etc at someone.

My general opinion was that as long as the person is not hurt other than feelings, public figures expressing views on and wanting to control how others live their lives are 'fair game' - as long as those doing it accept responsibility and any damage most be paid for.

However, I will certainly now have to reconsider and rethink it over regarding the psychological aspects and effects of such incidents.

"Happy City" have just sacked their head of policy after she tweeted she'd prefer it to be acid.

Ruth Townsley joins Happy City - Happy City

Hello I’m Ruth and I am programme manager of Happy City’s 12 month Innovate UK-funded project to develop an interactive tool which will enable policy makers to see the health benefits of improvements in wellbeing. The project work will build on and develop all our learning so far, and has the potential to be rolled out into other areas of policy. Exciting!

I am really pleased to be part of the Happy City team – there’s a creative, fun vibe in the office and the work that we do is both substantive and important. There are also cakes.

My recent work history: I spent four gruelling but rewarding years co-managing the Community Organisers programme at Locality, and before that worked at Locality on voice and impact – helping communities to find their voice about things that mattered, and helping community organisations to demonstrate the difference their work makes. I have an English and American Literature degree and a Masters in Responsibility and Business Practice.
Other things that make me happy: cycling (road racing), ballet, watching the verdant burgeoning of my urban vegetable backyard, retro-fitting a bog standard terrace house, campaigning and resistance, street art and subvertising, psychogeography, crafts (incompetent but keen). Long suffering but devoted Leyton Orient supporter (probably the best ever indicator of a naturally happy person).

Thought crime!
Only words!
Not an act of violence!
Eroding freedom of speech!
Political correctness gone mad!

Sorry, just throwing in the usual responses to people being punished for their words :0)

An actual expert who literally wrote a book on personal hazmat response, and worked close protection for President Bush disagrees
