British Secretary of State Mark Field has been suspended from the service following a rude attack on an environmental activist. Prime Minister Theresa May had seen video footage of the incident and found this to be “very disturbing,” her office said on London’s Downing Street on Friday. The state secretary in the Foreign Ministry is therefore suspended from duty until the investigation is completed.

The conservative Tory politician attacked the woman who had demonstrated on Thursday evening at a gala dinner at the London Mansion House together with other Greenpeace activists for more climate protection and Finance Minister Philip Hammond had run aground, stopped rude. Mark Field pushed her against a pillar, grabbed her by the neck and then led her roughly out of the room. Greenpeace representative Areeba Hamid said she was “shocked” that a Cabinet member had attacked a “peaceful protester”.

Field asked the woman for an apology. He deeply regretted his behavior, he said in the TV station ITV. “In the” confusion “but” understandably many guests felt threatened, “he said.

He had even “seriously worried for a fraction of a second that she could be armed.”

Resignation claims came against Field from the opposition. London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Field should “reconsider its position” for its “unacceptable” behavior.

Labor MP Jess Phillips called the video footage of the attack “terrible.” Her colleague Dawn Butler said the pictures were “horrible”. Field must be suspended or dismissed.

Tory MP Peter Bottomley, on the other hand, said the woman had “clearly” tried to cause trouble. “Most viewers would say that it’s good that they did not succeed.”
