I don't really care about damage cost or economy, all my responses about these were responding to such queries directed to me.
Also quoting my previous responses below, saying there's no point in comparing costs and that it's not about the amount, for easy reference.

It is more than wrong - the staff involved are a shame, not qualified for diplomatic duties. They should face appropriate displinary action and legal consequence.
Also, many staff were involved, meaning there's a system failure. There should be a guideline, procedure or policy for dealing with protests outside consulate, hence relevant training to staff.
https://www.thestandard.com.hk/break...tion/6/197368/Consul-General Zheng Xiyuan said his staff, including himself, had been defending themselves after protesters had stormed the grounds in an unprovoked attack.
Greater Manchester Police said they had been gathering evidence from mobile phone footage and witnesses to establish the full circumstances of what had happened.
There have been no arrests so far, but they had "identified a number of offences including assaults and public order offences".
