    It's just appeared on the AP wires and the BBC live coverage. People who spilled over from the "protest" attacked their car as it went down Regent Street. No harm done to them, apparently.

    Looks like the mob is spilling over.

    Maybe they'll act against these stupid Politicians then.

    I would much rather the Royal Family in charge than some house of commons bigots anyway.

    Harry is a right laugh and would be great as a proper leader for this country, even Prince William.

    It's important - a group of protestors overwhelmed the Police Escort. That sort of thing is not supposed to happen.

    As for disliking them - you might not, but they're still people. Nobody deserves to be attacked just for being born into the 'wrong' kind of family, be it very poor, or very rich.

    The point isn't that the attack was minor, it was that it could happen at all. Royal security is supposed to be better.

    They have nothing to do with the fees increasing. How would you like it if someone hit you for no reason...?

    Agree with first poster - Royals should have more power. Well, Her Majesty should, anyway.

    We simply can't tolerate a situation in this country where law and order breaks down in the central streets of our capital city this way. Send in the riot police.

    I like living in a country where Royals and politicians can walk around amongst the public with minimal protection and without the fear of being attacked. I don't want our leaders holed up in some guarded compounds, behind bullet-proof glass or separated off from the public. I like being able to bump into a Secretary of State in the street - indeed, I think it's one of the essential parts of our democracy.

      I enjoyed Boris Johnson's comment about the attack being an insult to democracy, seems a touch ironic when discussing the royals, no?

        You all might be laughing, but just wait until a protest happens that has nothing to do with you, and they break into your car and attack you, or they start throwing bricks at your house and smashing the windows and paintwork on your car. Trust me, it'll be a right laugh. You'll even have to pay for it because the little delinquents will get away with it! Hilarious!
        I doubt this is ever going to happen. I'm not a prominent public figure, I don't drive through Central London and my house is in a street that has never seen a protest in the 150-odd years it's been around and unless someone's planning a march on Great Yarmouth College probably never will.

        Depends on whether or not Royals or Politicians would actually like to bump into you, or any other member of the public for that matter.

        Personally, I believe elected officials would prefer to distance themselves from the public outside of election season.

        We don't need to be reminded of Brown's unfortunate confrontation with a member of the public.

          The point I'm making is that they may think it's hilarious to attack a couple of people who have nothing to do with the college, but they wouldn't find it so funny if protesters trashed their property and threatened them for no reason. It's nothing to do with whether you're a public figure or not or how obscure the location you live in is, it's that needlessly attacking and causing damage to people who have nothing to do with the protest isn't funny, and it wouldn't be so nice if it happened to you.

          People can use the excuse of "oh it doesn't matter they're rich and deserve to suffer!" but then it becomes nothing to do with fees and turns the attack into an ideological one against any rich person - funnily enough 'ideological' is the same complaint people use against the cuts.
