Photos of the student protesters

I came into central London yesterday to do a walking tour of little known historic sites in the City. We had planned to avoid the student protesters but found that the route of the protest went right past the pub where we where having lunch. The result was we were locked in and the protesters were locked out. Nevertheless, I was able to take some photos of the protesters going past through the window of the pub (the Viaduct Tavern). Be warned, the protesters were rather few in number. Here are some of the photos.

Reminds me of the time I went on a demo against the funding proposals of student unions by the then Education Minister Margaret Thatcher back in the 1970s.
She eventually backed down.
Of course Britain was less of a police state in those days.

Was Tim Farron not on the student demo? He quite enjoyed them, if I remember! Both as an MP and a student leader!!
