I'll punch your lights out

This is Emily Davison.

She died under the feet of the King's horse at The Derby in 1913.

Legend has it that she did so, of her own volition, in order to secure free and fair voting rights for women.

Shortly after I voted at this Polling Station this morning, men began threatening to punch each others lights out.

My commitment to living and working in Tower Hamlets is rockier tonight than it has been for thirty years.

That makes me very sad.
