A sightseer has been accused of launching her glove at a Queen’s guard in an attempt to make him move before she was told off by a cross Beefeater.
The female sightseer was observed standing in front of the guard with another man, with the glove resting on the ground at the guard’s feet.
Observers have alleged the woman, who was observed wearing just one glove, decided to make the guard at the Tower of London move by propelling the accessory on the ground.
The man can be caught speaking in the video: “It’s a standoff, who’s going to get the glove first?”
But a Beefeater guard approaches shortly after, telling the couple off.
He at first asks the couple: “Excuse me guys, did you just throw your glove over to the soldier?”
The woman’s response is muffled but the Beefeater can then be caught responding: “Why would you do that? The army is here to protect the crown jewels, they’re not here for the public to make fun of.”
He continued: “He is a soldier, he serves his country and he deserves to be treated with a little bit of respect.
“Throwing your glove at him isn’t going to work, is it really?”
The footage does not show the sightseer launching the glove.
The Beefeater can be observed escalating over the railing to retrieve the offending glove, which can be observed resting in front of the guard. The woman’s glove is then returned, with her putting it back on her right hand and walking away.
During the exchange, the guard remains perfectly still, simply moving to stamp his foot to attention.
The video has gained almost 50,000 views after being uploaded on Youtube.
By the way, they looked and their attire, they appeared to be devout Jew’s, with the man who had ringlets. Hardly a way to display themselves when mocking a soldier who was just doing his job.
Nevertheless, if you made a stupid crack to a Jewish person, they would announce that they were being victimised. These two must have had their brains in their box since their conduct absolutely sucks, and they unquestionably don’t know the definition of respect.
I wouldn’t have saved the glove, I would have left it precisely where it rested, after all, I’m certain following the guard moving it, it certainly wasn’t considered kosher anymore!
Furthermore, it’s unbelievable from a race that always claims they are disrespected and not treated well.
Perhaps they were jealous because the soldier had a larger and furrier hat than he did?
Sightseers must keep in mind that even though it is their holiday, it’s everyday life for the people of whatever nation they’re touring and they should consider their practices and beliefs and not be discourteous fools.
This is simply a foolish act by simple fools, and they were obviously anxious to make a statement, though if they had carried on, it could have been down the police station.
You frequently view vast masses of people with their clowning around, there is invariably a nincompoop someplace on the streets of London but they are essentially having an enjoyable time, savouring the spectacles of London and most tourists have much admiration for the Royal family and the guardians that defend them.
Once again confirming there are presently only two classes, unrelated to wealth or poverty, those with class and those with no class whatsoever.
