    I'm at a point where anything that frightens members of the Plutocracy/Oligarchy into thinking that the peasants just might revolt - is a good thing for this world.

    And nothing says "uh-oh, the peasants may riot" like rioting peasants.

    i can't help but wonder if he'd been sitting next to princess Di instead of the moose, whether the students might just have cleared a path for them to get through.

    UK May Ban Student Marches

    London's top police officer says he is considering banning student marches in the wake of violent flare-ups at protests opposing a massive increase in university tuition fees.

    The move has prompted some observers to declare that Britain may be headed towards "martial law" as police push back against angry youth who find they can no longer afford an education, at a time when jobs openings are rare.

    Speaking about a possible ban on marches, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson said "it is one of the tactics we will look at and something we will keep under review, and if we think it is the right thing to do then we will do it."

    The declaration has incensed students' groups, who in recent weeks held four large demonstrations in London to protest the tripling of university tuition fees to the equivalent of $18,000 per year. Britain's parliament passed the hike this week.

    From the other side of the coin - some friends from Cambridge Uni who were in the last London march and who were peacefully marching were charged by police on horseback and many were assaulted. Of course such things wont ever appear in the media will they?
