Traditionally students do society events on Wednesday afternoons. I played rugby at Uni so was a member of the Sports Soc, it seems that the Violent Protest Soc have converged on Millbank to light some fires, smash some windows and undermine their own argument.
Nick Clegg and the Lib Dems are also getting some stick because they campaigned on a promise to oppose the increase in tuition fees that the students are protesting about, a promise that they are now unable to fulfill. As Lib Dem MP Martin Horwood pointed out, coalition government means that both parties have to compromise, neither the Conservatives nor the Lib Dems are able to fully make good on their pre-election pledges.
Funny then that the Lib Dems are still pushing for a voting system that would lead to almost perpetual hung parliaments and coalition governments. As I have written before different election systems have advantages and disadvantages, and if you want MPs to stick to their pre-election promises you need to have a political system in place which doesn't give them an automatic get out of jail card.
