First, the utter self-centeredness and ignorance of the modern student:
Many students condemned the troublemakers but some said violence was an acceptable form of protest.
One student from King’s College said that 450 Cambridge students had attended the protest and she believed some from her college were on the roof.
‘It was students from King’s who made the effigies of Cameron and Clegg. It’s been fantastic. The atmosphere is amazing and everybody is really nice.
‘The majority is a completely non-violent protest. I’m not really worried about violence against property or objects, smashing buildings is completely fine, it’s a great image of our anger. I’ve got no problem with that at all as long as nobody gets hurt.’
Everyone round to her place to trash it and steal her belongings! It's OK, it'll be 'amazing'...
Then there's the equally appalling ignorance of the modern meejah representative:
Hilarious that Kay Burley on Sky News keeps saying Millbank Tower is the headquarters of the Conservative Party. She's just as deluded as the protesters. The Tories moved out of the main tower after the general election. Their offices are next door at 30 Millbank, next to the Pizza Express.
Clearly not many of these protesters are geography students...
UPDATE: Kay Burley on Sky is not having a good afternoon. She has just said that protesters are on the roof of Millbank Tower. They are not. They are on the top of 30 Millbank. She's also saying that Mi5, "across the river" has shut its entrance. Er, that would be Mi5 next door to 30 Millbank. Mi6 is across the river, not Mi5. Dear oh dear.
Clearly, some of these students should set their sights on being TV news totty. Obviously, no education is required...
And finally, the bored ennui and indifference to their job of our professional public servant:
The politically active, socially concerned and highly educated metropolitan middle class, especially those with political, media, and academic connections, now have the police force they wanted.Which is nice for them, I'm sure. But what about those of us who'd like to arrive at our unburnt-to-the-ground places of work in order to keep funding your salaries and pensions, hmm?
