Theresa, can we get a little perspective please?


We had some riots. A few people were injured but probably fewer than are injured on a typical Friday night in Leeds or Manchester. There was some offensive but temporary damage to a couple of statues as a result of students being a brainless and stupid as students have been wont to be down the years. And the Duchess of Cornwall had a stick prodded at her.

As far as I know, nobody's dead. No-one's been abducted. Normal life - or what purports to be normal life continues. It's no big deal. There will be another protest sometime with much the same result - more froth and bother than anything of substance.

So can I make one thing very clear....

We do not need water cannon.
