At last, some informed, reasoned critique of the coalition

Students have been doing what they do best - smashing windows in Tory HQ.

Yeah, yeah, I know, if I was caught up in it I wouldn't like it, and I doubt all the more violent protestors were actually students. But at least there's someone prepared to go out and physically express their anger at politicians.

God knows, the Lib Dems aren't going to do it.

Last month, the business secretary, Vince Cable – whose department includes universities – told the Commons the Lib Dems' pre-election pledge was "no longer feasible".
"The roads to Westminster are littered with the skidmarks of political parties changing direction," he said.

Yeah, thanks Vince, justify your immediate U-turn now you lot have sold your soul to the Tories. I think it's obvious that the Conservatives would have ramped up tuition fees if they'd been able to get into power alone, and it's just as clear that the Lib Dems would have been attacking them for it if they were still in opposition.

Brazen political whores, the lot of them.

And on top of that, I'll bet in 20 years time, those students who were smashing windows today will be cutting jobs in Whitehall. It's the natural order of things.
