They say cut back, we say fight back!

This has been in the news lately, about students and workers protesting in London/Manchester about some of the new Conservative Governnment's policies, mostly regarding education and cuts. Because we're in such financial trouble, the Government has chosen to cut certain public things like healthcare, education and even LIBRARIES! (I know, I know. Tragic.) And they're charging up to £9,000 for students to attend University. Yeah, harsh beans much. So Mike, Ed, Tommy G, Paddy, Jamie, and I all decided that WE WOULDN'T STAND FOR THIS! So we attended a huge protest in London... we spoke to a fair few crazy people, we saw a police officer get punched in the face, and had an overall nice day out!

I think that's cool that you attended the protest. Were you the one who punched the police officer?

Hahah I love the brown cardboard signs.

It's good to see people out there making a stand against crap like this.

£9,000 a term, get it right.
