Global weak continuity of M-functionals in a neighbourhood of the parametric distribution is established. This has implications for robustness of M-estimators vis a vis definitions put forward by Hampel. For instance the Tukey bisquare location estimator is robust on neighbourhoods of the parametric model, but the median is not.
