Apparently assaults on NHS staff in the UK are on the increase, over the last 5 years there has been an average of 193 assaults a day. There is a petition campaigning for a specific law similar to the one that makes it an offence to assault a police officer. If anyone is interested in signing it the petition is here (only UK residents & British Citizens can sign it);

Do you think they check if you are a citizen or not? This is an increasing problem everywhere. Certain drugs (ice) are giving rise to increased aggression and attacks.

I don't know, but there was a story in the media that the petition for a second Brexit referendum had been signed by people who were ineligible, however do the media tell the truth?

Well if I come across a Brexit reversal petition I'll be singing it! Only to assist my UK brethren....the ones with common sense that is. It looks like Teresa could quickly paint herself into a corner now that the rubber is hitting the road. Not having ones cake and eating it seems to be the message.
