    Did you guys honestly believe that if the protest didn't turn out violent the tuition fees wouldn't have been raised?

    I know that this is a divisive issue, but I would urge everyone to recognise this for what it is: an 80% cut to an already stretched tertiary education system, foisted upon people who had no responsibility for the crisis, by people who went to university for free.

    It's an absolute disgrace.

    While the country suffers from deep cuts the very understanding/sympathasing Royals decided to go watch some thearitical show in their tax payer funded motorcade just round the corner from the protests.We should really admire these Royals who are only leeching off the tax payers and rubbing salt to the wound at the right time.

    What have these protests achieved?

    It was a huge sign to the politicians that people won't accept BS from them anymore.They are all a bunch of two faced lying warmongering thieving scumbags!

    And what can i say about Nick F***** Clegg?

    This is only the beginning, the Poll Tax riots didn't have immediate success however they did force out the government of the time and one year later the plans were scrapped.

    Keep the faith.

      Democracy's all lovely and fluffy until something you don't like happens. And WTF do the royals have anything to do with fees? I always take the mick out of them, but attacking them was crossing the line and made you look like thugs, damaging and attacking things getting your knickers in a twist because you didn't get your way. Boo ****ing hoo.

      Read my post again with your Specs on this time.

      I never said attacking the Royals was a good thing, i just said how pathetic it was of them to go watch some show just round the corner from where thousands of students are protesting worried about their Bright full of debt future.

      As been said before, they have vandalised and injured people. Not only that, but this will be seen by people all over the world - as if their perception of British people wasn't bad enough - we now have these thugs running around.

      The media are labelling it as students, maybe about 10% are students, if that.

      See the person that swung on the cenotaph? That is so disrespectful seeing as that is a memorial for people that died so they had the right to friggin protest.

      The British Monarchy is actually a good source of tourism revenue, not to mention its cultural value.

      You do understand why cuts are being made and, in particular, why tuition fees are going up, don't you?

      Tbqf I got the impression that some protestors (especially the violent) are just anarchists who have nothing better to do, kicking up a fuss; many of them should have been in school learning about the world around them instead of continuing to act blindly.

        Their trip had probably been planned months in advance, and the venue was located very close to where students were protesting. Engaging in criminal behaviour is really going to get you sympathy, isn't it?

        The trip could have been easily cancelled and it was kind of stupid anyway for the Royals to head near the protestors when the signs of violence were clear alot earlier during the protest.

        Success? Hopefully you go back to uni and learn the definition of success.

        Protests were a failure and did nothing but show students in a worse light than they already are by todays media. Congrats on putting graffiti all over london, injurying police officers, smashing windows, defacing statues and smashing up topshop. Huge success

        I know the definition of success hence why i called these protests a success.

        The main objective of the protest was to get the point across and it was successfuly accomplished.It was clear to majority of the students that the protest wasn't going to change the increase in the tuition fees.But the point was made and it shows that the the British youth can still make a stand for themselves and their future.

        Was he the same one that then went on to ask what's stopping him dealing drugs on street corners? Fair play to the majority of the protesters. It's a shame there were some *******s in there that gave the media an easy slur image to portray but that's always bound to happen.

        If nothing else, this whole sorry affair of tuition fees has ensured Nick Clegg and his ******** "Liberal" chums in parliament are finished. Their party has been set back generations so they can have their 15 minutes at the top table. I feel sorry for the public who actually believed these snakes were actually a viable alternative. As for all those who supported them in the opinion polls but didn't vote (I presume a lot of them were students) and will now support Labour, lets hope they actually vote.
