Students not to blame for riots.
I'm not suggesting that the protesters in the recent demonstrations are not responsible for their individual actions or that they shouldn't be accountable for what they did as individuals but history will not blame them for bring anarchy to the streets of the British Capitol, any more that history blames the protesters for the Poll Tax riots 20 years ago.
The Government must take the blame for bringing riots to the streets of London.
Ironically, successive governments and political parties have for generations been trying to engage the young in politics. For many young people this has now been achieved but I doubt this is what the parties had in mind.
