    Actually, sorry to be a pedant (not really!), but the Guardian has a slightly different image.

  12. @RichS: Yeah, I noticed that. Would be interesting to find out whether that’s the same photographer or one alongside him/her.

    Agent Provocateur so blatant. Now the Police will once again be able to use heavy handed tactics. This violence takes all thoughts away about the real issues. Divide and conquer same old rules. Now what would the headlines of been if that incident had not happened

  208. Mark Hanson says:

    Good spot and not unusual for all the press to use exactly the same image – you can usually spot on the evening news which picture will be in all the next day’s papers.

    Also, sadly, we could have predicted that the press would have told the story from a frame of young people out of control; something the largely 50+ newspaper audience should be frightened of.

    A bit like rising house prices always being portrayed as a good thing!

  210. Helen says:

    My husband Dom took the shot that featured on many of the front pages this morning. The Guardian snap was taken by a photographer stood next to him, and you can see the back of Dom’s head in the pic on the front of the Express, so unless he has some impressive skills as a contortionist that he hasn’t told me about, then I suspect it wasn’t his either. It was still a proud day in the Lipinski household (although as he’s a staff photographer not any more financially rewarding than any other day…)

    Hey Helen, what was your husbands take on the violence?

  217. Barney says:

    We don’t know whether the window-smasher is an anarchist or not, so please don’t call them that. Although many anarchists would probably be prepared to do something like this, so would many other people with a range of political viewpoints, or with no defined overall political viewpoint.

    Anarchism is not simply the practice of smashing stuff.
