'That's my son,' shouted the mother, allegedly.  'Yeah, that's okay.  They're not relatives,' she would have added, with a grateful smile. if the boy had gone to someone else.

What if the two youths were trapped on the viewing platform with a paedophile disguised as a Modigliani? The 20% chance of surviving the fall was the obvious choice.

What if the viewing platform was part of an M C Esher installation, and the teenager thought the kid would actually land on a higher level, giggling happily?

for the crime of throwing a child to it's Doom from the viewing platform of the Tate Modern art gallery, you are sentenced to write a weekly blog about your feelings for 6 months culminating in a vlog in which you must admit to at least some small degree of guilt.

beggars belief honestly it does. in my day if a 16 year old threw a 6 year old from a ten storey building he would be sentenced to be thrown from a 100 storey building by a 160 year old man. but now they are issued xboxes and pills until they promise to watch less sky sports and spend an hour a day thinking about trans people.

Is this the new knife crime?

Actually no, surprisingly.  It is an old one.

Only to prevent a dog being thrown off the building.

I believe the correct verb is yeeted - "The small child was yeeted off the viewing platform."

I wonder whether anyone has ever thrown a small child off a building in order to 'bounce back' another small child being thrown from an opposite building.

We're always saying that if time travel ever becomes possible we'd know about it by now, perhaps this is the evidence we're looking for.

Here's a Brass Eye quote from Labour MP Neil Coyle: "Nearly 6 million visitors last year to Tate Modern and nothing like this has happened before."

Actually, wouldn't it make sense for all buildings with balconies overlooking sharp drops to have nets like those ones in prison for foiling suicide?

You said it sometimes does but actually it never does, I’m afraid.


It’s just one of those things in life that never does.

This is like a Peter's Mad Thought played out for real. Don't tell me you didn't want to know what would happen! Well the answer is, it becomes national news etc.

Surprised it's taken this long for a precocious French child to be hurled from a great height in a major London tourist attraction

Child is stable, thank Heavens.  No update on how annoying it was though?

The main thing is it has learned not to do whatever it was presumably doing again. A win-win story, heartwarming and just.

Something about those crying child paintings of the 70s but I can't find a way to make it work that doesn't make me feel awful.

Were they recreating the famous scene from Titanic and it just went wrong?
