In which we declare Ms. Edith Bosch this blog\’s representative of the new civility

A special mention to Dutch judo bronze Edith Bosch who, enraged by a lout throwing a bottle onto the track behind the 100m men\’s finalists punched out the offender after which he was thrown out of the stadium and arrested:

\”Some drunk in front of me throws a bottle onto the track!! I hit him … Unbelievable,\” she said, adding the hashtags \”angry\” and \”norespect\”.
She revealed in her next tweet that she had missed the race in the commotion: \”Dammit … and I missed the 100m! What a BEEP\”.This is one aspect of \”the new civility\” which I feel we should encourage.


A little more punching of louts would improve society.

  1. Would you want to spend any length of time in intimate physical contact with a lout? I hope she washed her fist afterwards.

  2. I see he has the modern day mark of a lout too, the double-barrelled name. Once a sign the person had breeding and class. Now, so often a sign of mother’s many partners…

  3. Remarkably little drinking in the Olympic Park. Maybe something to do with the £5 a pint price, but still, I never saw any rowdiness at all. It was like being abroad.

  4. @JuliaM: that amuses me too. Strange how something can go through 180 degrees in a short(ish) time. What I want to know is though, what happens when double barrel chav has kid with double barrel chavette? Do you get quadruple barrel kid?
