Revolting Students Part (sorry lost count)

#2
Seems not thus far. However, supposedly another little tent city going up in Traf Square at the moment (I can't be arsed to pop outside and see for myself, TBH) so the day is not over yet. Given the proximity to Remembrance this week, I frankly think the Plod are bloody fools for letting the march get even that close to the Cenotaph, since the tents must have been forseeable, and they will have no choice but to get heavy in clearing them. At least that tosser Gilmour is in chokey and can't swing on the flags this time around.

Oi! Seb!! Get them posters sorted!!!

Back on thread - plod clearing the tents from the base of Nelson's C - Polly and the rest of Guardianistas doubtless first parading their Outrage Bus as I type.

From the Guardian "Live Blog" at 1511:

"As the crowd moved into Holborn Circus, plain-clothed officers made an arrest. One officer (presumably an officer) was wearing a windcheater with a British marines emblem on it. More bottles were thrown."

As Auld Yin says, someone seems to be having fun...

EDIT: Quite impressive for a Guardian hack to recognise the Globe and Laurel. Would be even more impressive if he had granted them the courtesy of their Royal prefix. Assuming, of course, that it was a correct ID in the first place.

We can be sure of one thing…

Our resident e-revolutionary - chuffit-tabmonkey-bugsy - is not at this protest either as he's still posting dribble on ARRSE from the comfort of his mums back bedroom.;P

I reckon it'll be quieter than the last few now that they know that a stretch in pokey (including having your nipsy stretched by a good hard poking) isn't out of the question. Stand by to see a few black bloc eejits try to escalate the whole situation all over again, though. 'Anarchists' protesting against reductions in hand-outs from the state... It'd be adorable if it wasn't so bloody annoying.

How much is this protest costing us?......
Dunno but seeing as a Degree is going to cost them up to £27k a head, unless of course they are Welsh, Scots or Northern Irish resident, then I think they have an absolute right to protest at both the price and the inequality. I pay the same tax as someone doing my job in Glasgow so why is my daughter's degree going to cost her but not his kid?

My youngest brother is policing this demo today. It's the Anarchist twat hangers on and Gilmours that he is looking forward to getting stuck into, not the real NUS Students.

Most of the demonstrators will be normal kids. Let them get on with it.

All a bit of a damp squib and the Tarquils and Tabitha's SKY are interviewing, (none of which are paying the extra fees), are hardly cutting edge intellectual giants.


ETA: the Met reports a whole 2,000 turned out.

So little or no vandalism and a fair bit of immature, poorly articulated posturing from kids that know nowt about working for a living. Looks like it's a proper Student demo then rather than an anarchist free for all chance to attack Plod.

Good.
