English students protest fee increases

English students: skipping lectures

A few posts back this blog noted that Irish students were demonstrating against a University fee rise to €3,000 while English students seemed to be supine in the face of potential fees of £9,000 (and £6,000 as typical fees.)

Well, the English have now revolted in their turn.

They seem to have invaded Tory HQ and smashed it up a bit.

It remains to be seen whether this will have any influence on policy. Probably not. The weak link in the coalition government is really the LibDems. It might have been more effective to invade their headquarters.

Laughing from the sidelines are the Scottish, who pay nothing.
