Title: Whitty Harrased (again)
Post by: Tony Tony Tony on June 29, 2021, 10:17:59 AM
There is a video on lots of news outlets of Chris Whitty being ‘manhandled’ by two absolute bell ends in St James Park. What the fuck is it with these tossers?

I’m not normally one for harsh punishments but in this case hanging is too good for ‘em.

A bunch of conspiracy twats came into my university campus, screaming at anyone in the vicinity demanding to be brought to 'meet' a top virologist who works there. Obviously he wasn't on campus, because virtually everyone is working from home, he's very busy advising the government and they were in the wrong place anyway, but where do they get off?

Didnt know this about his father

Quote
Before leaving Malvern, a month before he turned 18, Whitty’s father was shot dead in a terrorist attack in Greece. Ken Whitty, then director of the British Council in Athens, was killed by a gunman as he drove home with work colleagues, one of whom also died in the shooting. The murders were claimed by the Revolutionary Organisation of Socialist Muslims, an international terrorist organisation set up by Sabri al-Banna, better known by his nom de guerre Abu Nidal. The attacker apparently mistook Ken Whitty for an MI6 officer he bought a car from.

And at the same time, this affairs lends itself perfectly to advancing the cause of clamping down on protests beyond the openly Tory aligned - if these common "thugs" can say their hellos to Christopher "Chris" Whitty (Companion of the Order of the Bath), one of the sensible people, imagine what someone with excitingly-coloured hair might do you, your car, or your property.

A man has apologised over footage which appears to show England's chief medical officer, Prof Chris Whitty, being accosted in a park.

Lewis Hughes, from Romford, told the Sun he was sorry for "any upset I caused".

The video shows two men laughing and jeering as they grab hold of Prof Whitty, who struggles to free himself.

The Met Police are investigating the footage, which the force said happened in St James's Park in London on Sunday.

Mr Hughes, a 24-year-old estate agent, told the newspaper he had lost his job following the incident.

"If I made [Prof Whitty] feel uncomfortable, which it does look like I did, then I am sorry to him for that," he said.

His friend Jonathan Chew, 24, said: "We just wanted a selfie."

If you just wanted a selfie, wouldn't you just ask rather than grab hold of someone and try and stop them from freeing themselves?

The Independent has more details

Quote
Mr Hughes said he has lost his job at Caplan Estate Agents as a result of the incident, and revealed that the pair had been on an anti-vax demonstration when they spotted the Chief Medical Officer...

“I absolutely apologise for any upset I caused. If I made him feel uncomfortable, which it does look like I did, then I am sorry to him for that,” he said. “He is quite a timid, shy person and I think that is why he didn’t say, “Get off me”. If he had said that and I had realised how he felt, I wouldn’t have put my arm round him.”

Mr Hughes insisted he “just wanted a selfie” to show to his mum and insisted there was “no malicious intent”. He admitted drinking with his friend before the incident but said he felt “led down by Boris” following the Prime Minister’s condemnation, after voting for him in the last election.

The Essex-born boxing enthusiast said he had now “paid the price with my job.”

“I have worked every day of my life since I left college, I have never been in any trouble. Now I have to start from the beginning again and I loved my job,” he added...

The Metropolitan Police is continuing to investigate and has recorded it as ‘common assault’, although Mr Whitty has declined to make a formal complaint.

Mr Hughes said that he had been told by police that they wouldnt not take any further action.

Would people on an anti-vax demo really want a selfie with Professor Chris Witty to show their mum? Glad the Independent got in that Hughes loves boxing., that's really relevant to the story.

When did we get to the non-apology being standard? Is it a lawyer thing? This wasn't "I'm sorry if Whitty was offended" but it's pretty close. Why can't people just say "I was completely hammered and it's no excuse, but I'm sorry I did this. It must have been horrible for him. People shouldn't do stuff like this."

If the pair had any basic decency they would spend the next year doing things to make up for their treatment of Chris Whitty and going on an anti-vax march. They should also make a public humble written apology to Chris Whitty and do something nice for him as an apology.

Christopher Whitty earns enough to visit Quarry Bank Mill, the former of home of Beatrix Potter and Alan Titchmarsh's favourite National Property, and have cream tea at the mill café in just over 15 minutes at work. (That's assuming he isn't a member, which doesn't seem very likely.)

Quote
Two days ago, a load of people protested' outside his house calling him a murderer. Over the last year he's been trolled online for his physical appearance. Now some ugly fottage has emerged of two of Britain's finest harassing him in the street.

Chris Whitty graduated from Oxford to become a leading Physician and Epdemiologist. He became Chief Medical Officer of the UK, just before the biggest world health crisis in over a 100 years. In a Government clearly out of their depth and unravelling by the day, he's been a voice of reason the public can actually trust. Qualified, free from bias and led by facts, he's often had to deliver some harsh and disappointing news. But he's done so in an assured and dignified way. He hasn't asked for this stage. In 'normal' times we wouldn't even know his name.

Tonight, when I normally read a made-up story to the kids at bedtime, I'm going to tell them a real tale. One of a man who helped save a kingdom, despite not slaying any dragons or bagging a princess. Just by being damn good, doing his duty and demonstrating human decency. A real hero.

I urge all parents to do the same... 🙌

A man has been sentenced for assaulting England's chief medical officer Chris Whitty in central London.

Lewis Hughes, 24, from Romford, east London, admitted one charge of assault by beating Prof Whitty in St James's Park on 27 June.

He was given an eight-week custodial sentence, suspended for two years and a fine of £100...

Hughes' barrister, Laurie-Anne Power told the court that her client had recognised Prof Whitty from the television and that he wanted a selfie for his mum.

He would have done the same thing if he had seen Justin Bieber in the park, the court heard

I doubt he would have manhandled Justin Bieber like he did to Professor Whitty.

Chew will go to court on the 23rd November, he's pleaded not guilty.
