The one plus side of the raise in fees will be stopping twats like them going to uni in the future.
What, you mean people who are willing to do something more than go for a walk to make their point? Clause 4, man. In 1997 Labour took a part out of Kier Hardie's manifesto for the Labour Party that said:"To secure for the workers by hand or by brain the full fruits of their industry and the most equitable distribution thereof that may be possible upon the basis of the common ownership of the means of production, distribution and exchange, and the best obtainable system of popular administration and control of each industry or service"
'Hand' is a reference to physical resistance against those who are, in this case, crippling workers before they have a chance to start and will never see the 'full fruits' of their labours. It was removed because New Labour thought it'd scare the middle classes. And that's exactly why these fees and cuts have come around; the Baby Boomers have screwed the pooch so badly the only way to get themselves out of it and not risk their comfortable retirement (because, fuck, Hell will freeze over before that happens) is to take money away from the younger population.
You want something to change, then you've got to fight for it...they're not going to back down because of a peaceful protest, Nick Clegg has made himself the biggest traitor of the decade, turning his back on his policies in his election manifesto so he can sit in at No. 10. Give him a bit of power and he's just the same as Cameron or Brown.
Poll Tax Riots worked. The Peace March against the war in Iraq didn't. Figure it out.
This is one of my biggest gripes. Who won the fucking election? Did the Lib Dems? No. Sure, they're in the coalition, but let's think about this for a minute. Conservatives won 307 seats. Lib Dems won 57. Can you really expect the Lib Dems to have that much clout within the government in terms of policies? Can you justifiably call them traitors for simply not having all THAT much power?
Would you rather the Conservatives had full control over the country?
