    All Student bodies and organizations should simply petition the Metropolitan Police Force to step aside and allow unhindered protest.

    If the Metropolitan Police decided (as a reaction to government spending cuts affecting they themselves) to ignore the Police Act and take strike action on a day of planned protests, I believe the government would be forced to reconsider.

    With no one to protect them, what can the government do?

    The last time the Police took strike action "they received a pay increase that doubled their wages and the government was forced to take notice of their issues, establishing the Police Federation in the process."

    This would end the dispute and the Police wouldn't have to be put in the awkward and dangerous position they find themselves in every couple of weeks.

    Maybe the Police should just go on strike for the days the protests occur.

    What a double whammy for the coalition that would be.

    Nice idea but wouldn't happen. I think it would be better if it was an unplanned strike anyway, police just get there and think "Nah *******s to this, want to go Starbucks and get a frappuccino?" and go away.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
