    Angry Rioting students attack Royal car

    Linky. So far some shuffled feet and assurances of a review as to what happened.

    What the outriders were doing letting the car going towards a large crowd that at the same time was trying to break into the treasury God only knows.

    Leaving aside the dreadful initial job they did, they also seem to have done nothing as the car was attacked with paint and bricks. They appear to have taken it on faith that nothing untoward would happen to the Heir.

    Personally, I think that individuals (and indeed, anyone nearby) under these conditions should be fired upon with live ammo and charges of Treason applied post mortem.

    But then I am a Royalist...

    You're a Royalist! Blimey.

    The only thing going for having a royal family is that it stops the likes of president Blair, Brown or 'Call me Dave' Cameron. Which can only be a good thing.

    Mind you, I'm old enough to remember stenguns in Knightsbridge.

    There are times I wish they’d just ban everything- baccy and beer, burgers and bangers, and all the rest- once and for all. Instead, they creep forward one apparently tiny step at a time. It’s like being executed with a bacon slicer.

    The whole thing with the student rioters is pathetic. Now some kid's mother was on the BBC complaining about how the police hurt his head... what do they expect when they attack them? They have a right to protest not riot like lunatics.

    They do not even have a cause, they are middle-class gutmensch, they like to riot cause they think its fun. I do not understand why the left-leaning politicians even support them.

    Live ammo is a bit extreme... I would use rubber bullets and tear gas/water cannons first. That would almost certainly make them back down, since they are not actually rioting over anything important.*

    * in perspective that is, when you consider the conditions surrounding rioting in places like Haiti...

    What amateurs!

    It is completely unacceptable that an angry mob could get this close to causing serious physical harm to royals, only for them to escape after all.

    How could they have let them ran off with their heads still attached? How difficult can it be to apprehend fleeing royalty?

    With wars and economic hardships, it's high time students cycled back around to 60's-70's style activism. I can only hope that we also get the music, but not the clothes and poor hygiene.

    I particularly liked that bastion of working class values Charlie Gilmore doing a Tarzan impression on the cenotaph. Poor guy, he's only a year two history student at Oxford but claims not to know what the cenotaph is. I wonder what they teach them these days?

    And they wonder why people on the minimum wage don't want to subsidize these people. Perhaps instead of acting like a berk he should ask his dad for a couple of quid. Cretin.

    We should have a republic anyway, and stop living in the past.

    Also, the vast majority of students are not rioting, but peacefully protesting. So the police beating some one over the head tot he degree of them requiring brain surgery when they were not one of the rioters is a cause for concern.

    Yeah... I always thought it strange that the left supports these students, who want more money that they don't need at the expense of people that are actually poor. I believe some Labour backbenchers have pointed this out, although they can't stop the tide of stupidity.

    My dear fellow. The laddie is an undergraduate at Girton College, Cambridge. That bunch of johnny-come-latelies won't even rusticate the dismal chap. It is no surprise to me that the education there is negligent. Practically a polytechnic, don't you know.

    you night think so, but i'm not looking forward to the alternative which is a much more expensive president blair. yes, yes, i know in your perfect world the president would cost 50p/year and be the embodiment of a saint and as wise as solomen, i'm not convinced however.

    wot IA said, they're are supposed to have brains so why aren't they using them, the anarchists are a PR disaster for their cause. how sympathetic are the working minimum wage supposed to feel when they watch prize twits tarzan around the cenotaph and set fire to things.

    Ah, yes, Oxford. A fine modern institution of higher education. Located conveniently close to where many French gentlemen found a living in this period, it allowed for the less talented sons to receive a nominal education close to home, without the hassle of having to travel to Paris.

    This topic really gets to you, doesn't it?

    Of course you can make the students pay more, that usually leads to less students, more unemployed people because jobs other than those that require studies are already satisfied with workers and sooner or later your industry will whine that there are not enough people to fill out all the high profile jobs and hire people from abroad like India or China while you wonder how that can be with so many unemployed people and why the government doesn't do anything to get local people into these jobs.
    I think finishing university with a loan isn't all that bad if you actually get a job that pays, of course if you don't, then everyone loses (the next big crisis after the education bubble burst? ).

    The President doesn't need a wage higher than the Prime Minister or a higher consumption of resources. Why would he need one?

    I never understood the argument that it would be somehow vastly more expensive. Please explain that to me.

    It seems he dropped a microdot or a blotter (very apt, given who his step-dad is) and was flying with the gods. Ala Robert Wyatt.

    I, on the other hand, have no excuse for my iggorince.
