I think all the talk of revolution was a bit premature.
The Union of Students of Ireland is organising a protest march in Dublin this afternoon against the possible re-introduction of third-level fees. The USI said that, weather permitting, it is expecting up to 20,000 students to march in the protest.
Weather permitting??? Feck, what would the students of ’68 make of such squeamishness? These students brought Western civilisation to the brink of collapse and daily invited the weather gods to do their worst to dampen their revolutionary passion and rage.
21st century students? – Nothing but a crowd of wimps.
