As is so often the case in times of dissatisfaction, the student movement appears to be leading the way. With the betrayal of the Lib Dem’s free education promise still in the minds of young voters, and having faced a tripling of university tuition fees under the Coalition government, students are at the forefront of anti-government protest.
In November as many as 10,000 students descended on London to demand the right to free education for all, no matter their class, race, or financial situation, and an end to austerity. This protest was not supported by the National Union of Students (NUS) who cited safety fears as the reason they were not alongside the people they were supposed to be representing. The decision not to support the protest shows that the NUS are out of touch with the wishes of students across the country.
Though the NUS distance themselves from this new wave of protests, the tide appears to be turning against their authority. Following on from the protest in London, marches and demonstrations have occurred throughout the country without the need for NUS support.

Second in the series of these poems.
Following on from the A poem I wrote earlier.
Banks are going belly up as boom becomes bust, but bonuses for Barclays bosses are bigger than before. Business beats babies because benefit payments brutalise billionaires bank balances. Bully boy blues, hell bent on bloodshed, break bones of brotestors with hard black batons. My brothers become bruised and beaten in Brighton. The bigotted BNP begin to believe, a beleaguered Britain is brilliant for their bullshit. Bikini clad Playboy bunnies giving blowjobs in the backs of blacked out BM’s. Beyonce’s backside interests billions of boys, but bombs blowing up babies bring about nothing but boredom. Binman strike, Bedroom Tax, both because of budgetting. Boobs and Bulemia. Beer and anti-social behaviour. Blu-Ray and BPD. Burqas and beheadings. Bush and Blair still not brought before a barrister. No Justice. The biased BBC broadcasts Royal baby bollocks, whilst Big Ben bellows above a Broken Britain.
The plan is to write a series of these, 26 in total, 1 for each letter of the alphabet.
Hence the name, Anarchism to Zionism. A to Z.
