I wonder how many protesters were actually students, and not like the last protest when some of those involved were not students at all.

I doubt if this incident made any difference to Prince Charles, and it definitely wouldn't have bothered Princess Anne, or their children.

I couldn't help but ask, But The car windows would of been bullet proof surely so what on earth would they of used to smash it.?

They do their cause no good at all.

HRH and his Partner have no say in the Government of this Country and that particular display of ignorance just makes you wonder why they are at Uni at all.

I believe a window was cracked,not smashed.

'They do their cause no good at all.'...the picture of Camilla looking a tad worried was on the cover of every newspaper and has lead every news know very little about advertising. It might make some of the old guard go go 'hrummmmph!' but not everyone.
One has to ask why, we are constantly told that the RPS is superbly trained, what in heavens' name they were doing driving Chas through a well-publicised riot in a car without they think everyone loves him? seem to be a bit out of touch if you ask me.

Was it not the prime Minister himself that stopped police protection for MP's.
Maybe this was also directed at the Royal Family as well.
Not sure if it was a cost cutting stance or whether he actually believed that it was no longer needed.
I am sure the police already had their hands full trying to restore order elsewhere so they were not able to give the car the protection that was needed.
I think the person or persons that gave the order that it was safe for them to procede by car without the protection that was needed should be looking for another job this morning.

I'll bet that they didn't know that the serfs had minds of their own nowadays.
