We will be recalling correspondents from some less newsworthy parts of the globe, such as north Africa and south-east Asia, so they can focus on palace matters instead. And we will shortly be making available to readers a range of attractive commemorative crockery.
Quite seriously - this story downplays what is clearly a string of bullying incidents. In this case the victim is pelted with sweets. The intention is not to injure, but to humiliate.Read the story. This was part of an ongoing series of incidents - probably bullying. This sort of story makes it less, rather than more likely that victims will report bullying, so it does a great service to kids, doesn't it, in the puerile drive to get a 'controversial' headline. Well done...
Yep, punish the boy for being bullied. Idiot.If this is true, then the "assaulted" boy,his parents and the police should be taken to court for wasting police time and taxpayers money. The mind boggles.
