I'm not gonna defend or attack the students for protesting, as it and the whole cuts thing is a pile of poo. It's the sensationalist media coverage that I find laughable - some of the TV presenters really should be shown 'Brass-Eye'. Mind you, maybe they have seen it, and their whole presentation is a parody....hmmm
Oh, btw, good point made by Papa Lazarou - most of the Govt's cuts wouldn't be required if they closed all the existing tax loop-holes. Ahhhh, but that'd involve squeezing the Tory party funders & supporters, like Lord Ashcroft etc. So, though the Govt say 'we're all in this together', as usual the general low-middle income part of the population is in it a whole lot more.
