So... the student demos have been pretty mental. I don't want to make a big social or political comment about it, but I will say that what started out as a good thing is beginning to go a bit pear shaped. But there is a silver lining. Many a laugh was had at Camilla getting poked (I loved the fact that someone apparently shouted "Off with their heads" while doing the deed), the stupidity of Charlie Gilmore and a rather cool Vice photo shoot.
In the good old days, a member of parliament had to read out the riot act (was an act that authorized local authorities to declare any group of twelve or more people to be unlawfully assembled, and thus have to disperse or face punitive action.) before police could take action against rabble rousing yoofs.
