UK NEWS: MP’S VOTE FOR RISE IN STUDENT FEES, VIOLENCE ERUPTS IN CENTRAL LONDON

Today Parliament voted to increase fees paid by university students in a close vote which divided the coalition government, and as you can all imagine this hasn’t gone down well.

Upon hearing the bad news demonstrators broke down a door into the Treasury and fought with police who were inside the building, a Reuters witness said.

As I type angry demonstrators are rampaging through Central London and attacked Prince Charles and Camilla’s car outside the London Palladium  tonight, where the dated Royal Variety Performance is due to take place.

  1. “Charles and Camilla’s car outside the London Palladium tonight, where the DATED Royal Variety Performance is due to take place.”

    I love it!

  2. I think this was great!!! Protest….that’s the way. But from what i have seen on TV protesting may not be enough. But that was a really huge jump in fees.. Who can really afford that??

  3. I guess I am glad I got my BA – must start being proactive in using it. The experience taught me a lot. They are making UK students pay the same as foreign students. It makes no sense to say to someone have 40k around your neck till you die. A nice deposit for a house. How many graduates end up in crappy jobs will have this forever.

    As for the violence, yes there were opportunist, but if you keep people kettled into a corner including school children, after a while tempers will flare. Steam does not always escape. All the police care about are the police officers who got injured on duty – occupational hazard – they ought to get over it. I am more concerned with pictures on tv showing police punching people in the face and that young man who got beaten with a police stick who is now in hospital with bleeding on the brain. smh

    Apparently people from families who are low paid or deemed working but living in poverty will get no help. so if your parents earn 12k no help for you!!

    fake dems – tory scum – hearing those chant made me laugh.

  4. Damn Londoners are off the hook!!! Let me know if they reverse the decision….unfortunately if we did that over here you end up dead or in jail! I can’t be gettin’ gassed n shit!
