My own union, the University and Colleges Union, is holding a mass demonstration in London with the National Union of Students to protest the privatisation/abolition of higher education.
Our Students' Union is advertising the event thusly:
Oh dear. Apart from the horrendous spelling mistake, all it says to me is that this demo is a bit of a lark before getting on with the serious business of shopping. Shout a few slogans about education-as-consumerism, then get down to Oxford Street with your credit card.
No wonder the government doesn't give a feck for student opinion. I'd go with Pol Pot and send all the intellectuals out to the fields, only the SU leadership wouldn't qualify…
Blossom's a bit peeved by this too.
