    Sh doesn't look too unhappy about it. Shows how pictures can lie.
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.

    Technically an assault, I would think.
    The BBC (and other TV media) ought to remember that they don't own the public spaces like pavements.
    If they want to have an interrupted TV broadcast, they should do it in a studio or a private area.
    I'm sure there must be some private area that they can grab.

    You'd think they'd have someone on location to help prevent members of the public from photo-bombing or generally interrupting as a live interview takes place.

    Sorry but I think it's funny and not entirely accidental he manages to slip his hand underneath her jacket pretty deftly.

    Signature on hold as I've seen no unused witty comments to plaigarise.

    I think the sexist comments by some members regarding this unfortunate incident are a disgace..Mindless tit illation is innapropriate and should be actively discouraged....

    As would be her hitting him. It wasn't in self defence/to get him away/as an automatic reaction, as he wasn't touching her at that time and there was a definite delay in between her being moved and deciding to hit him.
    I could dream to wide extremes, I could do or die: I could yawn and be withdrawn and watch the world go by.

    Yup you are officially Rock n Roll

    He definitely touched her breasts on purpose, he has no defence in court
