BY MARTA COOPER

A man who shouted “no ifs, not buts, no public sector cuts” at Prime Minister David Cameron during a speech in Glasgow in July has been sentenced to 100 hours of community service, it was reported today.

Activist Stuart Rodger, 23, admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by violating a security cordon; shouting and failing to desist; attempting to approach Cameron and causing fear and alarm. His sentence was reduced from 150 hours of community service to 100 due to his guilty plea. The BBC has reported that Rodger was previously fined £200 for hitting Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg with paint.

    This is an outrage. Since he unfortunately pleaded guilty, it’s difficult to see what can be done to remedy the situation, but this is really just bog standard heckling, which any half-decent politician should be able to take in his stride. What sort of pillock of a magistrate would acquiesce in the guilty plea, let alone impose “unpaid work” – a bizarre euphemism for slavery or forced labour – rather than contemptuously dismissing the case?
