    What do the tuition riots mean for Britain's coalition government? - By Alistair Burnett | Foreign Policy

    Interesting article about not only the current tuition protests going on in London but the different parties in the government reaction to this problem.

    If they raised our tuition here 3 X what we pay now I'd be rioting too.

    I'll say. I can't imagine how bad the dropout rate would be if they suddenly raised the tuition rates by 3X. They're lucky enough over there at the very least that it was a smaller amount beforehand.

    Shut the fuck up. Civilization takes a backburner to basic needs being met.

    Go put that cock-shaped pacifier in your mouth and let the adults debate.
