I suspect that Charlie Gilmore was happy to have his name in the news too, 5 minutes of fame is better than none at all for some I guess. My sympathies are still with the students but possibly when one or two individuals commits an act of violence it creates a knock on effect, mass hysteria. To most young people demonstrating is quite a new experience compared to the 60's or 70's and are not be aware of the dangers that violent thugs can cause when they infiltrate demonstrations and possibly unprepared of how to deal with it or plan an escape. It would be good to see an end to it before anymore horses get caught in the firing line apart from anyone else.

Would anyone like to suggest why Charlie Gilmour was protesting along with other students? It seems it wouldn't be for lack of money.
What could be his motives?


Well I protested against the Vietnam war in the early 70s. I was in no danger of being called up to fight in it, and my own country wasn't involved in it, so what could have been my motives?

Are we only allowed to protest about things that directly affect our own lives or pockets? I'm not gay or black, but can conceive of joining protests against resurgent racism or homophobia if, IMO, conditions warranted it.

Young Gilmour was a bit of a twat I think (though if you look closely at the pile of paper he was trying to set fire to it was a copy of the Socialist Worker, so the lad can't be ALL bad :-) ) .

But having seen Ms Samson horribly henpecking poor David G at a climbing competition I was officiating at because she thought he was spending too much time helping out rather than supporting their son Joe (he wasn't...the balance was about right IMO), I can imagine that Charlie was probably well spoiled and over-indulged before DG adopted him.

McIntyre Tipped From Wheelchair

I see no bottles being thrown, no particular violence (crowd sound fairly good natured at this point), no crowd threatening him from behind...just a bunch of police officers knocking an isolated wheelchair user out of his chair and dragging him off. Some "escort"!

Still, the Daily Mail says otherwise, and as I only have first hand knowledge of 3 news reports regarding climbers or hill-walkers where the Daily Mail got it *completely* wrong (and 0 where they got it even a bit right), I guess I'll have to bow to Mr Black's superior knowledge.

Ritchie Black: Also,He was in fact escorted by the police through their lines - it was felt he was in danger both of being crushed or toppled by those behind him that were pushing at the barriers and by any shortfalls of the missiles thrown at the police. The truth is that the police put him behind their lines out of harm's way. Their action was protective rather than aggressive.

This is absolute bollocks. The video on YouTube and as shown on the BBC in the Ben Brown interview quite clearly shows several police officers running towards him, knocking his wheelchair over and him to the ground then dragging him over the concrete or asphalt. There was no-one anywhere near behind him at the time.

In what way was that "protective"?

What this unrepresentative government has done by pushing through a bill for which it had no mandate is to open a whole can of worms. It has effectively politicised a large group who were, previously, largely politically apathetic. They now see that they have to stand up and fight for their future against a tawdry coalition of vested interest. More and more people will join them, as happened with the Poll Tax protests, until the government falls apart and we elect a new one which will, hopefully, repeal this short-sighted bill.

See you on the streets!

Still, I can see Richie's attraction for the Mail. Perhaps he's dribbling with longing for the glory days of the classic 'Hurrah for the Blackshirts' headline? Or the comment 'The sturdy young Nazis are Europe's guardians against the Communist danger'.

That Lord Rothermere, he was a proper toff and no mistake. I'll bet Ritchie gets a bit moist when he reads his lordship's editorial on Hitler: 'I urge all British young men and women to study closely the progress of the Nazi regime in Germany. They must not be misled by the misrepresentations of its opponents. The most spiteful distracters of the Nazis are to be found in precisely the same sections of the British public and press as are most vehement in their praises of the Soviet regime in Russia. They have started a clamorous campaign of denunciation against what they call "Nazi atrocities" which, as anyone who visits Germany quickly discovers for himself, consists merely of a few isolated acts of violence such as are inevitable among a nation half as big again as ours, but which have been generalized, multiplied and exaggerated to give the impression that Nazi rule is a bloodthirsty tyranny.'

Nowhere near as bad as those revolting student attrocities, eh?

It seems to me that a lot of people are very angry and with good reason.
The coalition parties are having to stretch their fabric so thin to accomodate each other that it is plainly transparent and leaves many feeling as though they were simply lied to.
I doubt it is as straightforward as that but Clegg in particular has done whatever it took to get into government and it seems that there is no part of their manifesto that is written in stone.
So the students protest. Nothing new about that. Students love protesting and, to be fair, they've got a genuine greivance and, if I were a student, I probably be protesting too.
But here's the problem. Those guys at the front where all the agro is with the matching green crash-hats and weilding sticks.
Who are they?
Students? You think so?

I notice there is no condemnation from our Bozo and Black comedy duo about the antics of Cameron and his buddies when they were students. So, presumable, you think it's OK to smash up and set fire to a public place for "fun" but you condemn thoughtful, well-intentioned students who march to try to defend their right to an affordable education (and yes, it is is a right). Strange sense of values, Blackie - or is it just ignorance!

Love this myth of Richard's that "education is a right", absolutely ridiculous notion of course particularly when applied to further education and university degree courses.

Basic education in the UK is mandatory

Higher eductaion in the UK is voluntary

Further education (University) you have the "win" your place, i.e. you have to qualify to be eligble for it - the only "right" you have to it is the "right" that you yourself have earned it is not something that is "given".

Charlie Gilmour needs to have the book thrown at him, the finest education that money could buy (Lancing College at £9000 per term) seems to have done the spoilt brat not one bit of good. Time he tried the University of Hard Knocks.

////You are forgetting that education is a pubic service and a public right.////

While I could be a typical mudcatter such as yourself and make endless idiotic, smartass jokes about your use of "pubic" as a way of dealing with people I fear may be more intelligent than me but in this case I will instead ask since when is education a right???? Do you pay for rights, Bridge??? No, but you do pay for school. In America, seeing that your kids get some kind of schooling is mandatory. That's not a right.

Is it a public service? Yes, in some ways it is. But in other ways it's completely self-serving. George Bush's graduating from Harvard Business School may have helped him. Didn't do shit for the rest of the country. Or the world for that matter.

Firstly he IS NOT A STUDENT. He is a well known for turning up at any gathering with a banner . A police spokesman said on television today that: individual hasn't made any complaint. In fact he admitted he was attacked from behind, yes from the surging line of students !

He IS NOT wheelchair bound either. Through his own admission Mr McIntyre, can stand and walk 100 yards unaided.


He was in fact escorted by the police through their lines - it was felt he was in danger both of being crushed or toppled by those behind him that were pushing at the barriers and by any shortfalls of the missiles thrown at the police. The truth is that the police put him behind their lines out of harm's way. Their action was protective rather than aggressive.

When the country was making a profit, students got free money and there were nothing like as many of them. Now we make a loss due to the scuttling of our manufacturing industry and we have about ten times the number of students. Unfortunately they don't seem clever enough to do the sums.

Here in America you pay for your college education no matter what. It doesn't matter how much your job pays or even if you can find a job. The loan never goes into default but must and will be paid in full. I went into the military for six years to get my schooling and then continued it when I got out, while working full time in a factory, so that I wouldn't be in debt for 30 years. Occasionally, you get turds who applied for welfare and then used it to put themselves through school and justified it by saying it went to use for the public good but sort of forget to admit that it also gave them a free ride which I didn't get (i.e. "You gave me welfare which I used to get off welfare, aren't you proud of me?"). But it was always illegal. In Britain, such freebies seem to be legal and quite the norm and they're whining. People on this thread are "GO STUDENTS!!" They look like a bunch of spoiled brats!! Whatever are they complaining about? What am I not understanding here??

Gee, I paid for my bachelor's and master's degrees by student loans (repaid, with interest), service in the National Guard, active duty service in the Army, money from a totally inadequate GI bill, and part-time work -- not to mention the support of living at home and walking to college every day. Of course, I couldn't afford boozing every night or a car or dope or any of the really fun things. Yes, there was perhaps some small quantity of liquor consumed at certain times...and there might have been a girl or two dated...but my education was paid for, in full, by myself and my work.

Now, let's see: I attended a private high school and I couldn't afford the tuition there, so I worked washing dishes in the cafeteria, scrubbing the gym floor, and doing other things in lieu of the cash we didn't have. Grade school I don't remember.

And I wasn't aware that students in the UK all got free rides or low cost transportation....

Like Amos, I have no dog in this fight. I just don't understand it.

100.

The creep son of Dave Gilmour seen swinging on the Union Flag at the Cenotaph last Thursday has appeared in the Daily Mail today in fresh pictures of him piling newspapers outside the Supreme Court and attempting to set fire to them with a lighter. Gilmour was also pictured clutching a rock for use as potential ammunition against the police and allegedly boasted of 'taking so many batons' during the violent clashes. The Cambridge University history student who admitted he had no idea what the Cenotaph was, is typical of the type of thug that wrecked public property in London with the blessing of the brain-dead Hoff Bridge and Tin Lizzie, Gilmour admitted he was also in the mob that surrounded Prince Charles and Camilla' car.

In the photographs in the Mail, Gilmour is seen taking a stone from roadworks in Whitehall. With a scarf wrapped around his face in an unsuccessful attempt to hide his identity, he tossed the rock menacingly at police. In another sign of sinister intent, he wore latex gloves during the demonstration to avoid leaving incriminating fingerprints.

There is a moving reference to the Cenotaph in the Pink Floyd song Southampton Dock, and David Gilmour's former bandmate Roger Waters lost his father in the Second World War and has written extensively about his loss throughout his career.
