A little more than a week ago, crazed young Brits decided it was in their best interest to attack the car carrying their future King and scaring the royal piss out of his wife.
You sad, sorry, spoiled socialist bastards.
For the first time in recent memory, England has turned on the Royal Family with physical violence. I was stunned. I was appalled. For my entire life the House of Windsor has been respected, revered, and generally much loved by the people of England no matter who was mucking it up as PM.
The car carrying Prince Charles and wife Camilla was set upon by a rioting mob that pounded on the doors and windows, fired paintballs at it, beat on the bullet-resistant glass till it cracked, and shouted “Off with their heads!”
The picture of a horrified Camilla, her mouth agape, is destined to become one of those iconic photos along the lines of Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963, Vietnamese General Nguyen Ngoc Loan shooting a suspected Viet Cong in the head in 1968, napalmed children running down a road in 1972, a Chinese protester in Tianamen Square blocking a tank in 1989, a fireman carrying a child’s body in Oklahoma City in April 1995, or the April 2000 raid to seize Elian Gonzalez.
And you little turds are rioting over what? Tuition increases at your effete Liberal universities where you’ve been molly-coddled for so long with little to no up front tution costs, subsidised by the British government. That same British government that’s broke from paying out for nationalized medicine and myriad other social welfare programs.
Unless I am reading the data wrong, you ungrateful cretins go to school on the government’s dime and then pay back the loan when you start to make a certain amount, right?
A recent independent review of the tuition structures and repayments is the dcrux of all this, it seems. The independent review recommends that the current cap on tuition fees of £3,290 a year be removed. A new system of financing universities will allow for a 10% increase in student places to meet rising demand for a degree-level education, the Browne review proposes. Graduates will start repaying the cost of their degrees when they start earning £21,000 a year, up from £15,000 under the current system.
For those of us is the United States, that translates into Brit universities having a tuition cap at $5,110. Yeah, a paltry 5 grand a year, that you don’t currently start paying back till you’re making at least $23, 295 a year instead of just a few months after you graduate like we do here. That new plan would start repayment when you start making $32,613. Not bad.
It costs £3,290 a year to go to freakin’ Cambridge. The same for King’s College London. The same for bloody Oxford. (Admittedly the fees to foreign students are markedly higher)
Some of these sniveling wretches want to hop up to Scotland & avoid the higher tuitions. However, the Scots are ahead of the game.English students could be charged as much as £6,500 ($10, 094) a year to attend a Scottish university under plans outlined by the Scottish National party.Scottish ministers fear that measures in London to allow English universities to charge students up to £9,000 ($13,977) a year will dramatically increase the number of "fee refugees".
Under the Edinburgh plans, Scottish students and students from other EU countries would still have all their tuition fees paid by the state. But English students could be charged more, in part in an attempt to address a deepening funding gap at Scottish universities.
About 22,500 English students currently study at Scottish universities and pay annual fees of £1,820 ($2826) , or £2,895 ($4495) for medicine. There are 11,895 Scottish students at English colleges.
Yeah…did you just choke on that? I almost did when I saw that a year at med school was under 5 grand a year.
Lawyers from the Matrix Chambers in London have warned that charging students in England up to £9,000 a year was contrary to human rights law because it discriminated against students from poorer backgrounds.
Excuse me…but I don’t see education as a human right. The right to pursue an education and better yourself is a basic fundamental right but you have to work for it and make it happen. No one should just hand it to you. Just like here in America, we have the right to PURSUE happiness, but happiness is not guaranteed.
You liberal assclowns think everything in life is a basic human right. Wireless internet is not a human right. Cell phones are not a human right. HiDef satellite TV is not a human right. A free college education is not a human right. Get off your pampered asses and get an effing job and work for it. Guess how I paid for college? I did 4 years in the Army, serving my country and getting back valuable skills, experience, and college funding. Perhaps you people over there in Europe might want to consider enticing your young people to serve your countries with tuition assistance…..giving each soldier a certain amount to use towards repayment of those loans when they come due in addition to taking classes while they serve.
You’re also crying about the police using the technique of “kettling” to simmer your riots down, calling it yet another breach of basic human rights. No, violating basic human rights would be gunning all you little shits down in the street as an example to the rest. The London Metro Police did not shoot tear gas like the French. They did not shoot rubber bullets into the crowds like Israeli or South African police. The peaceful Swiss police recfently quelled a riot over banking bonuses with water cannons on trucks, tear gas, and rubber bullets, scoring a trifecta. No…you were kettled. Kettling, also known as containment or corralling, is a police tactic for the management of large crowds during demonstrations or protests. that involves the formation of large cordons of police officers who then move to contain a crowd within a limited area. Given the choice of an ass-whoopin’ or stiing in a cluster for awhile, most rational people will sit down and STFU.
So by American standards you get to sit on your asses at venerated institutions of higher learning with 300-year old ivy-covered stone walls at a bargain rate as you learn state capitalism, art history, or equally useful poetry theory courses, wearing your trendy Ché Guevara pins on your blue blazer lapel and a hammer & sickle tie tack. Come on over here to the former colonioes, old chaps, and see what it’s like to pay a good $20,000 (£13,000) a year to go to a school locally like, say, Clemson University. By the way, 20 grand a year is in-state tution. As an out of state student it’s closer to $55,000 a year. (just under £36,000). I did say earlier that Oxford charges more for foreign students, right? It’s £17,892, or $27,786. Costs twice as much for you as a foreign student to go to Clemson as it would for me to attend Oxford. Wow. Life’s hard over there isn’t it?
Want to have fun in the sun and go to the University of Miami? It will cost you the same roughly. Or go to Duke University where the in-state tution was approximately $55, 690 for the 2010-2011 academic year. That’s just over £42,000. Still wanna bitch about tuition?
But take heart, you peaceful rock-throwers; there are more Marxists in U.S. university faculties than there ever were in the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.
The University of California at Berkely….the school of choice for budget-concious socialists. California residents and illegal aliens from anywhere can go there for their undergraduate indoctrination for a mere $6230.75 (just over £4000). Non-residents and legal aliens get gouged for $17, 670.25 a year. That’s £11,378 for you riot-prone British kids.
Now, over here, blueblood socialist elitists go to Liberal Arts Colleges like :
Colby College (about $54,090 or £34, 829)
Bates College (about $55,350 or £35,640)
Vassar College (about $55,615 or
Columbia University (about 56,681 or £36,497)
Stanford University (about $54,446 or £35,058)
Yale University (about $54,950 or £35,383)
Harvard College (about $53,856 or £34,678)
Yeah, it costs money to learn to be a proper elitist Lefty over here, mate.
And now that you heaps of offal have run amok through London on your tantrum spree, you have given a free pass to all of your own organically-grown (and imported) radical Islamist fundamentalists. You know, those nice, quiet, polite, Religion of Peace shitheads who seldom need a reason to riot or protest. It’s why they get out of bed in the morning; that, and to kill Westerners. Just watch…they’ll soon be tossong their own Molotovs and igniting car bombs and littering the streets with corpses, all in the name of Allah and the Caliphate of England.
Yes you, the rioting children of England, your tantrums will give rise to violent upheaval from the Muslims you shelter and allow every day to usurp British law and British culture and replace it with their own. Get used to the word “dhimi” and learn your roles, you twunts, because they will gladly enslave you once they take over. Living under Sharia Law will make your current situation seem a walk in the park, and you’ll be too busy beating your foreheads against a prayer rug five times a day to worry about replacing the burka-clad Queen with your own socialist kommisars.
