Tank the Tory HQ?

Just saw this, echoes my thoughts, although I think it would have been more appropriate to occupy Liberal Democrat HQ. real violence is 60% cut to university teaching fund.

Lib dems are scum, education for them is just for corporations and profit. If it helps society but does not make a quick profit they want to close it down.

If you know any Liberal Democrats let them know your feelings.

I am writing in response to coverage of the NUS/UCU demo today on the Guardian website against fee increases etc. I have to say (as a university lecturer) that it is long overdue: at last we have had a powerful riposte to the Con-Dem attacks on the welfare state. If any innocent bystander was hurt, that is regrettable; but the fact that Tory HQ was trashed does not present, as far as I am concerned, the slightest moral problem. By comparison with the harm that the Tories are wreaking on the most vulnerable people in Britain, it is small beer. It may be a cheap comment, but I'm sure Lord Ashcroft will pick up the bill. When I was a student in the 1980s, mass protest was not unusual; in France, it still isn't. Hopefully, this is the beginning of Britain beginning to learn that if we want to defend our welfare state, we'll have to fight for it

Since when are students the downtrodden masses?

And in comparison with Ireland the cuts here are small beer – does that make Greens scum too?
