I don't believe all that has been reported at all,why did the police charge a crowd they had already fenced in with horses?fuckin crazy that is,it was like a mini bloody Peterloo or the steel and miners strikes all over again and it could have been a hell of a lot worse we could be looking at deaths not just injuries.......i am not saying the violence is right but in the middle of the protesters there were women and children,innocent tourists and christmas shoppers too.....this is England not fuckin Chile or Argentina in the old days.......i support the students totally in their right to protest against these fees,its bullshit,i watched all the coverage tonight on the BBC,whom i trust more than most for impartiality,but it just didn't feel right to me at all.......i have been to strikes and pickets with my Dad and am more than aware of how the police.....especially the Met.......can goad a crowd then manipulate the outcome to their own advantage and for their own ends,they are experts at it.
Reading between the lines of all the coverage it looks like the previously agreed route of the march was suddenly halted by the police and they fenced them in then some of the protesters,not all it has to be said,weren't havin it and decided to break out.........what the fuck is the point in having an agreed route for the march if they go changing it at the last minute?The police aren't that stupid that was deliberate,on the day of the vote????..........they kept the crowd in one area for 6 hours or more that is wrong,this is supposed to be a democracy isn't it?
The sad thing is they will use the violence to diminish a very very strong and powerful argument into"Oh its just a load of thugs kicking off"sketch.........if they were smart they would be non violent and protest in a civil and orderly way,the protest would take longer but would have far more powerful effect,violence ALWAYS divides and never unites people and blurs the argument.........i think that if it was peaceful the whole country would back them but the majority of folks won't support them and will just turn away from the argument and look at the blood.........i think the government are totally wrong,the changes have been really hastily put together by the usual fuck witted politician mentality...........i've got three kids i would like them to think about learning not just earning.........most folks won't have the money to put one kid through let alone two or three.......and what do we have at the end of it all say in five/ten years if our young can't afford to be educated?A thick as fuck country that can easily be ruled and sedated.I could weep.........after all the hard fought ground that was won to have equal rights for everyone to seek higher education if they wish that took centuries in a way......its taken away from us by bastards like Cameron and Clegg........so very very sad.......i think the students are very admirable and if they are the next and future generations then lets hope they rule the country instead of the arseholes who are running it now we should support them i believe..........it is the right thing to do.
One last thing............why is it ok to bail out Ireland with billions,bail out the banks with billions...............and not help our future generations with the empowerment of their minds so they can live better lives on an equal basis wherever you are from without excluding the people with modest incomes right down to the very poorest in our nation???????THAT is fucked up thinking......nuff said.
