Mark Field frogmarches woman out in front of black-tie guests
The Labour Party has called for the immediate sacking of the Tories’ Asia-Pacific minister Mark Field after he was filmed manhandling a female Greenpeace protester out of a black-tie banquet thrown for bankers.
Field is seen pinning the shocked woman against a pillar before grabbing her by the arm and by the nape of the neck as he shoves her away from the ‘elite’:
Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities Dawn Butler tweeted in horror:
Appallingly, Tory MP Sir Peter Bottomley congratulated Field for his action.
Boris Johnson infamously gave a journalist’s details to a friend so he could beat him up. It’s clear that thuggishness and arrogance are not limited to the Tories’ likely next leader – and no tuxedo or lavish surroundings can disguise it.
