Lib Dem MP condemns students
Don't take non violent direct action, don't break the law, don't occupy....we live in a democracy so vote if you disagree like civilised people.
Well what of the thousands of students who did this voting Liberal Democrat because the Liberal Democrats promised to fight fees.
But then the Lib Dems changed policy to go into government.
This is what Cambridge Liberal Democrat MP Julien Huppert said about student occupations:
“But I cannot condone any action by students which results in them taking over property or breaking the law. I would appeal to these students to leave the university building and take steps to ensure that any future protests are staged in a peaceful way.”He isn't going to be an MP after the next election. This will be little comfort given the governments assault on education.
I hope the students get the message and occupy his offices.
May be the message is getting through the London Lib dems have cancelled their conference tomorrow because of student protest.
