Students in Britain protest tripling of college tuitions, making them more like those of the US


Prince Charles (the film "Harmony") and a companion in a Rolls Royce sedan were subjected to a paintball attack by student protesters, as the British Parliament considered (and apparently passed) tripling the college tuition for students up to $15000 a year, as well as other big austerity cuts in social services.

Prime Minister David Cameron had his college education free. So, it seems, "like isn't fair", 

In the United States, students are more used to the idea of debt (today), but not in Britain.
