There are rebellions all over the place. All we've seen in the UK so far are a few petulant students whining about losing their easy money and chanting anti-Semitic slogans at the bloke they used to regard as their leader. If you belong to the Righteous party, you can be as racist as you like and it's not racism. It's only racism if non-approved people do it. We haven't seen more than the street bleatings of underfed sheep so far.
We've seen a crazed professor dress up as Dracula and call himself 'anarchist', when a more appropriate term would be 'self-absorbed ass'. You'd think a professor would understand that the last thing an anarchist wants is more government action, but hardly anyone understands words these days. They're all just howls in the wind now. We'll soon be communicating with grunts and clubs again.
No, we haven't seen anything like the actions in Tunisia, Egypt and elsewhere here. We've only seen the spoiled and the truculent demanding their right to other people's money. Nobody has demonstrated about anything worth demonstrating for - until now.
Not students, not the middle class, not the universities, not the workers, not the taxpayers. It has taken schoolchildren to finally stand up to the nannying, arrogance and lies of the Righteous and say 'Enough!'
Oh, the school responds with the usual 'It didn't happen' rubbish but that doesn't work any more. This protest is not about money. It is about something that actually matters. The trigger was a small thing, a trivial matter, something that needed no interference from the control freakery of Righteous teachers but they just couldn't help themselves. The children are furious.
That fury is now spreading to their parents. And to their family. Their neighbours. Through newspapers, to the country.
It might fizzle out. These things usually do but each time, they take longer to fizzle out. Each time, they spread a bit further. Each time, they cause a little bit more rage than the one before.
This protest is notable for one thing. It's not about money. It's not about loans or banks or entitlement. In fact, it might be the first protest about common sense.
Sure, it might go nowhere this time, but it is one huge step in the right direction.
To see it in schoolchildren is to have at least some hope for the future of this country.
