Earlier there was Peterloo. The cavalry that charged the demonstration in St. Peter's Fields in 1819 have been described as "younger members of the Tory party in arms". An unknown number of people were killed that day- sabred, shot, trampled by the horses. Among them was a two year old child.
The Tories have an affinity with cavalry charges. Maybe it's in the genes- all that ancestral fox hunting, all that riding down of peasants.
They don't see as us as citizens. They don't know us. We don't count. We don't feature in their world except as annoying noises off. We are the "enemy within" (Thatchers phrase) to be kettled and ridden down. In this latest episode of class warfare the "enemy within" are our students and school children.
