I don't want to appear to be pushing a POV here, but does anybody else think that the throwing of objects at sporting events doesn't fall under "heckling" (which is commonly just verbal) and should instead be under "hooliganism" (or some other article)? Cheers TigerShark 11:57, 2 May 2005 (UTC)


The discussion of stage-management and Tony Blair seems potentially NPOV. Firstly it suggests that the incidents with Tony Blair were stage-managed (is there any proof of this?), and it uses Tony Blair as the only contemporary example (lack of balance?). Any thoughts on this? Cheers TigerShark 12:07, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

Please don't mark the page in that way for minor reasons. The tag should only be used after talk page discussions have failed to resolve difficulties. Charles Matthews 12:14, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

I disagree with the above person, in that it in fact does the opposite and makes the hecklers look derogatory. The sad fact is that most 'public' audiences are managed.


This word isn't standard English. I would change it but I don't know what it means! Tex 01:33, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Its a contraction of obstreperous, which I see someone has added in brackets. Now, as long as people know what obstreperous is... -Dhodges 02:42, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

Parliamentary/Debate heckling[edit]

Does anyone agree that a mention of heckling between government and opposition in parliaments and legislatures should be made, possibly under the "Politics" heading? Also, I understand heckling is practiced in certain formats in debate competitions,

There must be a solution.[edit]
