So gutted by tuition fees vote, although I think we all knew it would go through, in the end. My student days - which spanned the eighties - were severely disrupted by illness but I feel more nostalgic than ever for them now - such precious days. We currently get free tuition in Scotland, but I'm sure every student/lecturer up here is sickened. I feel especially angry towards the Scottish Libdems who voted for or abstained... Violence is never good and having horses/batons or metal fences - depending on your point of view - used as weapons against you must be very scary. I also felt for the poor horse that reared up. But why oh why are the front pages dominated by photo of Charles and Camilla who were UNHURT, their car got shoogled and paintbombed but they were fine? A much bigger tragedy occurred yesterday: a lying Libdem leader showed that his millionaire friends are much more important than the people who voted for him. Access to education is everything. The most poor wishing to go to university (if we can actually believe the government) and the rich won't be affected (not really), but what about all of those in between? A great post on yesterday's demo by Newsnight's Paul Mason.
