    Why then, one wonders, didn't the police remonstrate with the one allegedly ramming the wheelchair and using it as a "weapon" instead of pulling the hapless cerebral palsy sufferer out of the wheelchair and dragging him along the road? Doesn't ring true at all, I'm afraid. :rolleyes:
    Oh please.

    You should take every story with a pinch of salt. Jody McIntyre is a not a student; he is a left-wing anti-government activist and freelance journalist. He describes himself as a "revolutionary freedom-fighter" and has given several anti-UK, anti-USA, anti-Israel, pro-Palestine speeches.

    Student fees are just an excuse for him & his sort to get involved in any anti-establishment confrontation."

    He can, apparently, walk up to 100 yards unaided. He has an axe to grind and will deliberately 'set himself up' in this way in order to have a go at the police.

    If you use Google, you can read his words about him being part of the rioting violent mob that stormed Millbank (albeit he puts a slighlty different spin on it) being one of the rioters that reached the roof during that orgy of destruction.

    It's only a statue for heaven's sake...it's not as though Churchill himself (and many people would disagree that he was one of the greatest men to ever live anyway) was pissed on.
    How would you like it if somebody went to take a leak on your mother's grave? It's disrespectful and disgusting.

    An argument can't be well-educated...to my knowledge

    affect their opportunity to access Higher Education.
    It won't affect their opportunity seeing as it is impossible for the access to Higher Education to be unaffordable.

    Repayment after graduation is no better than before graduation.
    Can you not see the clear difference? If it's re-paid afterwards then it's affordable for all. Would you seriously not be more angered if payments had to be made beforehand?

    but also the increases which will undoubtedly have a far greater impact on the less well off than the much wealthier
    Yes they will have a greater impact on the less well-off. A positive impact! The poorest 20% of University students will be better-off under this new system. Unless you were making a point against your own argument then you seem to be lacking some basic facts.

    There should be a graduate tax. Graduates can pay a higher rate of income tax, which be at the normal rate until fees are paid off. Education would be free at the point of the delivery, and this way there are no debts/liabilities to students.
