    Do you think he's anti-establishment?

    He says things like -


    "No longer a generation that doesn't care, no longer a generation that will sit there and take it"

    "We are going to stand up and fight back"

    wtf does he mean "we were supposed to be the generation who liked xbox"

    no we weren't. that's just been invented so these soft fleshed idiots can contrast themselves against their own image of what we "were supposed to be".

    "kids came down who had no economic knowledge, who hadn't been a part of anything before, but they believed in something"

    well a belief is a good substitute for facts; he basically describes the bandwagon movement

    Grandiloquence veiling ignorance. Fair enough, he's 15, he talks, but I don't agree with him.

    If this is ideology, lord help us. Show some comradeship where it counts, stand up for the downtrodden and the dispossessed -- not for spoilt/dim university students who have little grasp of the proposals adopted by the government. Arrogant remarks about the police being unintelligent too; despite inevitable instances of abuse of power, it's because we have "unintelligent" men (and women) patrolling our streets and training in our barracks that we are able to sleep peaceably at night.

    He's only 15 though, he's got time to grow some sense. But he is, alas, rhetorically adept.

    Every left winger is banging on like there is a second French revolution going on in England, truth is these students would take any excuse to get out of thier grubby flats and boring lives. And no one takes you seriously becuase the working public thinks you are violent and lazy and can't take your share of the cuts as everyone else has to.

    Yeh, I voted no

    You should have made it public, so we could see who voted "Yes" and assign them the relevant IQs

    I liked it. I have to admit, it was a moving and well written speech, even for a 15 year old.
