I can't believe that so many students had to pay to go. Up here at Wolvesunion we sent out students for FREE!

Us Brits dont know the meaning of 'protests'. Take a look at the french riots last year, the youths were out smahin up cars etc. etc. causing havoc and not stopping until they got what they wanted. I think our gov. neads a shock like that to make them re think their ways.

None myself! Funnily enough i was in school at the time. But I thought this was worth mentioning - i must point out that those who were protesting m ost likely did not even understand what they were protesting about (the radicalls) a lot of the violence came from youths who were unemployed after uni or with no real chance of going there. (Unemployment rates of 25% for 24-30 yr olds in Fr). I can see our country is unlikely ot ever to pull a protest like that in our current situation, however desperate measures r sometimes needed.
May I point out I raised this as i thought the comparison between our and Frances protests was quite interesting rather than to start a major protest (altho when i am £30k in debt i mite think differently)
