In a poll on The Student Room today members made it clear that they didn’t support the violence:
69% – Against the Conservative building being stormed

This thread ‘ To everyone rioting, breaking windows and starting fires‘ resulted in some heated debate. This comment from member NGC773 receiving 90 thumbs ups from other members using the new post rating system:
“to protest the higher fees should be ashamed of yourselfs. Breaking windows and causing fires makes us look like idiots and will make the matter worse. Violence doesnt solve anything.”
