What do we want? To be treated like children!

It’s springtime in London and the air is once again thick with student revolt and dry shampoo. Over recent weeks, student occupations have sprung up at the London School of Economics (LSE), Goldsmiths, the University of the Arts London (UAL) and King’s College London, as shower-dodging young radicals have camped out in meeting rooms, lobbies and academic buildings in what one King’s student has dubbed ‘a nationwide protest against our increasingly neoliberal, undemocratic and restrictive education system’.

    There is a great article on the front page of today s National Post, by Graeme Hamilton, slamming the thuggery going on at the University of Quebec at Montreal. Worth a read.

      I think Montreal is on the brink of mass riots like this country as never seen.

        I would love to see a few thousand students try to impede a number of thousands of construction workers trying to get to work to put food on the family table and pay mortgages.

    I will continue to advocate my policy of IGNORING the political lobbying of modern day adolescents i.e. anyone under the age of 35 nowadays. Doing so avoids “cluttering” the political landscape with ambient nursery noise.

    I bet if they were beaten into a coma, these occupations would end.

    Most students just want to get an education and leave with some good memories. It’s only a handful of shitbags that want to turn the campus’ into a war zone. Weed them out and turf them along with the professors who sympathize with them and the universities would change overnight.

  • It’s time to revamp education and training. A lot of people don’t belong in universities, mostly the professors.
