Why don't they keelhaul Brown and throw him down the abyss? Because they're retards. All of them.

Cameron is the PM now. Brown didn't have the balls to make the austerity cuts so he was voted out.

That doesn't mean he shouldn't be executed in the street.  He robbed England of it's gold reserves, for Christ's sake!

He SHOULD be hanged, drawn, and quartered, with the leftover bits of him sent to all the Western Central banks (including Japan) a warning.

These kids understand it's going the wrong way but what "it" is exactly and how it got to be this way... that's a bit much for their feeble brains. One thing they're sure of though: we need more government to correct "it". Because you see, government is the opposite of fat cats in ties. You'll start seeing these clowns all over Europe now, shouting "fuck" followed by all kinds of big words.

Tuitions are going up all over the US and what do you see??? No protesting.

What you see is a bunch of cell phone calls and texts to mommy & daddy.  Well mommy and daddy are tapped out sonny so get 2 jobs and hit the flea markets.

I M hip Kathy. I live in CO too. CU and CSU both announced double digit increases in tuitions and fees. I still have 2 in HS.

Same with college kids in Europe. Except apparently they don't even have the decency to face the higher costs on their own parent's money. Rather, they go out and play-act revolutionary. Because you see, we really need all those anthropologists and post-structuralist philosophers. And besides, it's not like they really can't afford it. If that were the case, they would actually be at home studying and doing jobs on the side. It's all about getting drunk and skipping classes and doing something for The Cause. Just like mom and dad did in the sixties.

yea, they should be more passive like our kids!

 

"we will not tolerate the previous generation passing on its debts to the next, nor will we pick up the bill to access a college and university education that was funded for them," he said

That'd be a fine argument if the fukkers weren't obscenely stealing the wealth of the people.

SGTbull07's picture

when you say "didn't have the balls to make the austerity cuts" you of course realize you refer to the enforcement of austerity in service of the elite banking oligarchy which benefits from said "cuts", while humanity is tossed into the abyss of insurmountable fiat debt, correct?  

faustian bargain's picture

It's either that, or profligacy in service of the elite banking oligarchy which benefits from said 'largesse', while humanity is tossed into the abyss of insurmountable fiat debt. Hm, which to choose, frying pan or fire?

BeeTee's picture

Please keep up.  Brown lost the election and fiscally responsible Cameron in the new PM.

So I'm afraid the only retard here is you...and that's a slur to others who are less mentally abled.

Jerk.

Apostle of Unknown's picture

so why are they storming tory HQ? Because they don't want fiscal responsibility. Look, it's your brain falling out.

Bravo!

"We are taking to the streets in unprecedented numbers to tell politicians that enough is enough," NUS president Aaron Porter said in a statement before the demonstration.

 

"We will not tolerate the previous generation passing on its debts to the next, nor will we pick up the bill to access a college and university education that was funded for them," he said.

He didn't also say "Anyway, we all know the government has a forest of money trees, guarded by unicorns and flying pigs"

goldsaver's picture

Nope. That is the Obama Stash! Keep your filthy British hands off it. You are too white to get any.

On the live feed just now, several students asked the reporter why there was no security around the buildings that were damaged. The reporter agreed, saying that was a very good question.

Of course we already know the answer. The government needs an excuse to justify the current and future heavy police (and soon military) presence. All they need to do is point to those nasty and violent protesters who damaged all those buildings on 11-10-2010.

Problem....Reaction.....Solution!

I wonder how many of those (in the minority) "violent" students were actually agent provocateurs?

That ole' trick, heh?  Take 50,000 protesters.  Throw in a couple of "violent" protesters. Invite news crews to film the small band of "violent" protesters.  Show the people at home what could happen if the police state isn't implemented ( for god's sake a small band of skinny Macintosh loving, hipster clothing wearing, pot smoking kids could wreak havoc).  There you have it--the outline of how to slow down a movement and enforce more control.

Actually what they're saying is, "why the fuck are we stuck with austerity when the dudes who got us in this are retiring."

Has nothing to do with "future" generations and everything to do with kids who grew up entitled and now don't like it.

Batty Koda's picture

You don't know fuck all about Britain, London is NOTHING like the rest of britain. If you think these kids are living in the lap of luxury why don't you take a little holiday to Bradford? Rent out a council house for the weekend, they are like palaces aren't they?

The average youth in Britain has it worse nowadays then any time since the 19th century. No jobs, no community, no leisure centers, no parks (without drug dealers), broken families and debt worries eating away at their parents.

But their parents are entitled to £66 unemployment benefits a week you say? fantastic.

philgramm's picture

So you blame these kids for being entitled?? I don't know if you are aware the welfare state.  It exists in almost every western country and it is getting larger in each of these countries.  Is it these kids' fault that they are entitled or is it their society and their gov't's fault for creating such as state.  Ironically, these kids look to gov't to fix a problem the gov't itself created.  Begging to your masters to save you from your masters.

 

Practical Anarchy, bitches!!!!..................and gold bitches!!!!!

... nor will we pick up the bill to access a college and university education that was funded for them...

Translation: Fuck this, they got theirs, we want ours! 

HarryWanger's picture

Exactly! And the same will happen here at some point. But the difference is here, when this generation gets out of college and can't find jobs, they'll create more bubbles. They want their way of life so they'll make it out of nothing. And so will the next, until one day, way down the road, it collapses.

Until then, "I gots mine".

Bananamerican's picture

are you suggesting the collapse will take 3 generations??

Austerity in Europe will not last.  Not when QE is the lesser of two evils.

Wow, British Socialist chicks are hot

Dude, if you gotta go there remember to breath through your mouth. And tell her to keep her arms down.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Agent provocateurs will show up sooner or later as the catalysts.

Students do not just flashmob like this, placards and all.

Someone is raising the heat.

groups are forming, choose wisely

Oh regional Indian's picture

Fractally, in the big picture I agree completely.

When you (we/us) finally come right up against the fork in the road (now), we will make individual and collective choices that will guide outcomes.

Choose wisely indeed. It's like that time, when you blew the semester in parties and binges and trips and with finals a week away, you find religion.

Such a fascinating turn in history....and to bear witness...

Awesome!

Is interesting that Hayek got it right, just on the wrong timeline. In "The Road to Serfdom" he describes the conditions that led to Nazi Germany. Post WWI and after the collapse of Weinmar, the government power was centered on government workers and labor unions. If you didn't belong to one of those groups you starved. So natural alliances formed, not to change the system, but to reshuffle the deck chairs in favor of those not in power. The National Socialists were a coalition of those who were out of power trying to claw their way to the benefits of those in power positions. They used violence to take over power of the same system that had enslaved them. Not to be free, bu to be the slave owners.

Hayek warned that the British socialist would drive Britain to the same tipping point and advocated the elimination of the welfare socialist state for a meritocracy system based on individual sovereignty. Sad, he never got his wish.

Coming to a "blue" state near you.

You expect students in any U. S. city with bleary eyes glued to some iCrap device to riot?

Right...

If the rest of the U.S. doesn't bail out California, we'll see it in California.

And if the rest of the US does bail out California, we'll see it in the rest of the US.

You got that right, monkey face.   I'll do my part.

Nope, they will just hold on line virtual protests.

dude, zerohedge is an online virtual protest....

This debt could engender an underground economy reminiscent of the Greeks.  Too much debt, don't do any reportable work.  If the IRS can find it, come and get it.  The currently graduating generation may be known as the Phantom Generation.

Well, they finally ran out of other poeple's money to redistribute.

Commies will try to take advantage

British Government: "Sorry we must triple your tuition as we have given all of our money to the Bankers. What you do mind?"

Bob's picture

Exactly.  BTW, folks, this is about tripling tuition. 

Cpl Hicks's picture

We (or I, to be exact) don't know what the basis of that supposed tripling is. If it's a small amount, which I expect it is, is may be chumpish change.

Who knows? Let the knowledgable Perfidious Albioners (brits) amongst us speak up!

I suspect it's a nice day over there, the twitter network says 'we is risng up anggry today!!!!!!!'

And there you go. Network feeds around the world.
