Flicking through yesterday's Daily Star I spotted this little quote, in a piece by political editor Gary Nicks:
"Daily Star readers remained split last night over whether the students were right to riot, with 54% saying yes and 46% saying no"
In terms of political science the Daily Star is actually quite an interesting paper as it is believed to be the only national UK daily where most of its readers do not vote. Copies of the Star are not believed to sell out in student union shops by lunchtime, so we can safely assume that very few students voted in the Star's poll.
If this degree of public support exists for direct action now, what will it be like when the Con-Dems cuts begin to bite in other areas?
