I support students’ university fees protests - but I think worse is to come
I COULD easily fill a page listing the cuts the coalition has made in the last few months which affect a lot of people, including those in Fenland.
The Education cutbacks include funding for sport on state schools and Education Maintenance Allowance. University fees have increased probably beyond the reach of the average student and millions of pounds are being wiped off funding for re-furbishing schools.
I personally support the protests the students are participating in, but I do not agree with violence or criminal damage and I do not agree with civil disobedience.
Those protests will seem like a vicar’s tea party when the unions start their action next year.
