Honest, but violent.

Miraslov Macek is a former deputy Prime Minister in the Czech Republic. He also has a grudge against the current Czeck Health Minister, David Rath. During a public forum Macek stopped a speech he was giving to walk up behind Rath and slapped him across the back of the head. Some media reported that Macek "beat him in the face" but as you will see below that is not quite accurate. But still it was rather uncivilized. But since politics is mainly organized lobbying to initiate force against others for one's own benefit there is something refreshingly honest in seeing it played out this way.
