Not only was it incredibly disrespectful of the event; moxt of the world had no clue about this custom, so they just thought the guy who threw them was crazy. A protest loses its effectiveness when people don't know what it's about.

The reasons for the shoe throwing thing is because in the muslim world exposing the sole of your shoe or barefoot is considered a high insult. Far worse than the western equivalent of flipping the bird or such. The shoe was thrown at Bush as a massive protest and somebody obviously took that on board for the Chinese Premier in London.

When I heard about this news, I thought it was funny. But seriously, I don't think this is a good way to protest. In my opinion, it's uncivilized, rude and disrespectful.
