Comrade lower.
My views are unfortunately different from that of you for which I have no regrets.

I a non-violent guy in this forum wish to expose the BARBARIANS who uphold the system that you and my poor self endure.

Agreed. Overpopulation cannot be addressed too soon. It will be one of the most if not THE MOST pressing issue of this century.

The violent protestors should be identified and refused access to university education, existing students should be expelled and any university staff sacked.

Education costs and students should not expect their first few booze fuelled years to be funded by me and other tax payers.

I talk from experience, I have seen these kids leave home for the first time and go wild drinking subsidised pints in the Students Union and acting like complete idiots.

Everyone has the right to drink and act like a idiot, but they should fund it themselves.

I think that government should pay for real geniuses but not for mediocre students. This will inspire students to study better.

very true, Barry and Amp. the violent students should be expelled and fined, and also, the ones arrested should be chain-ganged and forced to clean their mess up. Any foreigners arrested or identified should be deported as soon as possible.

why this students demand so much, nothing is free, they assume the whole world have to work for free so they can have an education, they don't understand the chain of people involved in educating them, from the bus driver to the ink maker to the school staff, the teacher to the sandwich maker,to the taxpayers, everybody help into providing them with education nothing came for free, everybody deserve to be pay.
don't give them anything, this are nothing but ungrateful angry people who take their frustrations on others.
teach them how the economy works.
And if they are not going to University who will feed the chain of now unemployed people??

Yup, exactly. These are the same regular militant anarchists that show up at any and all events, where they can attack "the system". Anti-capitalist, anti-war (ironic), UAF events ect all see the same mob.
Yes these despicable poor students are as you descibe. We must make sure that we relegate these beastly wretches to prison status or summoned to hospital by 'our bobbies' truncheons.
We must make sure that we squeeze every last drop of money from the poor to help pay for the unfortunate losses suffered by our blessed corporate bankers, and to help increase the wages and benefits for our very honest and trustworthy politicians, who bailed out our pet bankers.
Now, i was appalled at the violence at yesterday's riot by these des[picable scroungers, but was soothed to the soul to watch the many images of 'our bobbies' beating the hell out of protesters.
I was very upset to see Prince Charles and Camilla Parkyerballs being attacked by these vermin, it must have been exteremely distressful.

Off to war?been there and done it(68-70),have you?,didn't think so.Most of the liberals in my country ran off to Canada(Bill Clinton for one)than had enough gall to protest anginst our goverment and the people that gave their all.Typical lefty liberals,flap their lips and than run away.Many good men and women died so liberals like you can spew your gutless"feel good" liberal views.Fight and die for what I EARNED?, you bet I would,I would fight and die to protect my country unlike you and your kind.Do you want to know what is fair?.It is fair that people work for what they want in life and not live off the ones that worked their butts off just to give it away to the ones that think that they are owed a living,are you one of them? You are right (almost)about one thing,the world has awaken,it has awaken to how liberal,socilist thinking has ruined every country it has been tried in.If anybody's head is going to spin it will be yours and the people like you.

Do you mean, who let these despicable 'poor students' out, to run riot?
This is a question we need to examine closely.

Education must only be for rich kind gentlemen. And i also think popstars should only be from very similar privilleged backgrounds, that will support government policies and never protest againsst it. We are now having a very good filter system in order for proper control of music content.
There must be no antiwar anticapitalist, anti Conservative songs.

Liberal? kiss my arse! my country is being taken over by all and sunder while the boys fighting the wars and are discharged are dumped on the streets by the government!
Dont preach to me about fighting either, Our community's are being fkd up by Pakistani drug dealers while liberals talk shit about 'unity' while they
(pakistani's) lock themselves away taking over towns and generally hating us because of some fked up idea about how we owe them?
Given a chance to vote i'd vote for an invasion of Pakistan and give it to them tight,then id throw all the bigmouths out, and! imprison the rapists,drug dealers and Pakistani conmen for the rest of their natural, Dont call me a liberal, the worlds not that simple.
Most of my family have been to war yank and some are not here now, just so we can give away our country to idiots and freaks from abroad, the very same freaks we are fighting at that!
My point was if they are so smart all these "learned intellectuals" then why the fk is our country in such a state?
Let these pricks do the fighting and dying for a change!
If they want this country partitioned by freaks then let them get the kit on and fuck off and fight them abroad!
Maybe then they will appreciate why we don't want them.

A policeman over here makes twice the wage of a soldier and gets all the benefits to serve and protect Islamic scum-bags(not that i think they enjoy that!) while our soldiers have the job of shooting the pricks, this country is a fking mess because of Liberals.

You got he wrong end of the stick! Im 46 and if i thought they would let me rejoin i'd be there already,so fk you!

I'll stand down on the liberalpart of my post.Sounds like we both have the same views and the same problems in our counties.The way your post read was like you wanted a free ride for the students and the lowlifes,maybe I read it wrong,sorry.Say thanks to your family members for their service to their country,everyone that served should be thanked.We are having the left wing liberals in control here now(not for long) and they want to let all of the illegals stay here and make the taxpayers pay their way,even for their college.It is things like this that fires me up to a point that I would like to move to another country.So let me ask you a question,does the fk you still stand?? Stay safe.

Thanks for your reply, no i retract the 'fk you' thing (sorry about that i can be a hothead),I'm right there with you, i just feel it would be best to educate our own in our country rather than people who generally despise us and our way of life.
I dont think we should be training these double dealing azzholes abroad and arming them, its bullshit! they will never be on our side we are diametrically opposed societys.

Is smashing a couple of treasury windows and shoving a few coppers in any way 'revolutionary'?.
A large majority of these so-called 'protestors' will go on to become successful politicians, banker scum, council snoopers, pen-pushers, journalists, luvvies and general elitist f*cks. Deep down they know this because of their current claims that a dumbed down 'degree' gives them some sort of 'entitlement' in life that demands a position of respect without it being earned.

I like and agree with your post...
Personally i think the students of England have a point to a degree, when you think in Scotland and so on they have it free and just because your English your getting penalised and having to cough up more..If it had been anyone else the poxy your a racist brigade would be out..
My son has to pay for his course but some bloody foreigner in his class doe's not,makes me want to vomit..
"But" if these students want to start a riot then they should be hit with plastic bullets like in NI.

If students are so skint, then why do I see them drinking daily in my city centre? I used to live with students, how could they afford all that pot? Disregarding the fees, university is too easy to get into anyway. And most students at the 75% micky mouse university's in this country get taxpayers help to get a 'degree' in something so trivial such as Parapsychology, which is the study of the feelings of ghosts ffs. Staffordshire uni even have a degree called David Beckham studies. If people think they can insult the taxpayers of this country by getting a free 3 year ride for such worthless crap such as this and expect public sympathy they have another thing coming.
