    Prosecute them with the full force of the law, and allow universities to take whatever action they deem necessary (including expulsion).

    I think it's disgusting that protesters are allowed to get away with stuff, that would usually involve immediate arrest, just because they are protesting.

    All of these people should be tracked down and arrested, for breach of the peace at the very least:

    Trying to harm people (eg. fire extinguisher guy) - arrest

    Trying to harm objects - leave it be.

    No, it sends a message that it's acceptable to do that and it will be brushed under the carpet if you are a protester. It also flies in the face of the rule of law.

    These people disgust me
    I love this country, and think it's disgusting to see people swinging on our flags, pissing on statues of great British people, and burning benches (most of which are dedicated to the memory of people)

    I'm disgusted. Behaviour such as was exhibited today will not put anyone in favour of listening to students. Like taxpayers are going to want to fund university education when people behave like they did today.

    I'll all for protest, but today was disgusting.

    Not that I approve of what the protesters are doing - far from it, this kind of vandalism gives students a bad name if nothing else - but I did find it entertaining that as far as David Cameron is concerned, this is unacceptable unless of course you happen to be in the Bullingdon club and daddy is footing the bill.

    I agree that sending the message that it's acceptable is definitely the wrong thing to do. Protesting, fine (as long as they know why they're protesting, which an amusing number of the students you see interviewed don't seem to), but trashing stuff and hurting people is way out of line, even if I agree with their reasons for protesting.

    Is it just me who doesn't care? The government had made it clear long before the vote they would not be reasoned with, and the must have known this would be the outcome, especially with Clegg completely betraying the student vote.

    And I find it nowhere near as disturbing as what the police did to Ian Tomlinson.

    But of course thug policemen are above the 'full force of the law'.

    'Margaret Thatcher' really is the laziest troll on this forum.

    And anyone guilty of any offences today will have been arrested. The police declare the protest area a crime scene and vet everyone leaving.

    There's more important things to deal with. As the ULU leader girl said, we're talking about a few broken windows. Which is nothing compared to what is being taken out of education.

    I don't agree with damaging property. But I can see why people are that angry. It doesn't help anyone to prosecute them.
    They'll be paying for the equivalent of quite a number of window anyway with their increased tuition fees.

    What the **** is the point of arresting them anyway? All they're really going to get is a slap on the wrist...I wouldn't be suprised if they just got community service. Prick 'Hypocrite' Clegg and David Cameron bought this upon themselves, LOL at the first pic that woman failed miserably.

    I agree with the OP.
    I also think the police who attacked innocent protestors should also be arrested and feel the full force of the law. Won't happen though.

    I disagree. Everyone knew it would be passed. But the coalition majority was slashed from around 80, to 21. Pretty damning if you ask me.

    To target the Cenotaph was an utter disgrace.

    Such people need to remember what they owe to the people that the Cenotaph stands for.

    Idiots.

    Frankly I agree. There's nothing wrong with a peaceful protest but this was not it. It was frankly borderline rioting.

    Most were peaceful. Sadly, the media like to report on violence, and so it gives the wrong impression that most of the protest was violent, when it wasn't.

    When you have a state policy of 'give people stuff all of the time', and a society tuned to 'if it doesn't directly harm another PERSON, I'm doing NOTHING wrong', then you get vulgarity like this.

    The sad thing is, they're not even being ideological iconoclasts, which whilst disgusting, would at least have the merit of a true passion. They're just doing what wasted students and drunk NQTs do on every Saturday night - make the place look untidy, play out their faux-socialist angst on their physical surroundings, and try to make dramatic statements about things that they barely understand.

    I wonder how many of those lot are training to be doctors, scientists, pursuing an academic career - the useful things that people don't go to University for these days. I expect it's easier to justify a day's wasted time and money smashing up central London when you can afford to miss a week of your degree with no ill-effects.

    As for that early "Oh, it's all right for the Bullingdon" - If you can find a statement made by Cameron saying that, you've got a point. Otherwise, you're no worse than every Guardian letters-page co-respondent.
