And this from @suzannemoore197 which I enjoyed reading on the student protests… it had a touch of compassion and common sense about it. It may not appeal to some Daily Mail readers and….I quite the idea of looking at realities and facts…. how many of the 50,000 students were violent?… not that many..and were all those who were violent, students?
Stick-wielding Leftie yobs? Not the lovely boys I met at the pub
Are our students taught how to demonstrate properly? Do they understand what a riot is? Do they know the historical context of this British tradition?
I do hope so – and, indeed, if they are ALL doing media studies they will find that every cliche in the book has been mindlessly lobbed at them.
What happened on Wednesday has been spoken of breathlessly as both the beginning of the revolution and the collapse of Western civilisation.
