Leftism is certainly mental disease and one can feel compassion for the poor tykes in a perfect world.
But not in ours.
Now before going all ageing curmudgeon, time to stop, think and look back at my own student days, the days of mindlessness.
Regulars know I was Fabian and did anarchist for a while, tried a bit of shouting but got bored and started going to demos to protest against the protesters.
I was miffed with the Vice-Chancellor – we’d taken a lot of time and trouble to write our demands on loo roll [our group was called Anarchist Revolutionary Students in Education] we’d presented it and he failed to take it seriously [yes, it was a white male in those days].
So can we cut these little twerps some slack? Jury’s out.
