As someone with a beard and a duffel coat I now feel rather marginalised ;-)

More evidence of the using of young minds for nefarious purposes ? I suspect that most of these young people spend an huge amount of their personal time glued to screens on the internet without the slightest thought about the carbon content involved globally in doing so ? They should drop the holier than thou stance and look at their own contributions first to global warming before preaching to others. Or maybe just concentrate on their education ?

Oh dear, if they don't understand why this is completely unacceptable then we really do have a problem with the council leadership team.
It's not only the political leadership that needs changing but the entire executive team as well. Better still abolish WBC all together.

It is clear that this is now on an escalating trajectory. If allowed to continue it will not be pleasant. The powers that be need to wake up to the manipulation of our young people.

Indeed and its clear from the article below that they are still on their happy pills . Should the Lb Dems or even Labour by any chance unseat them would either hold a full and public audit of what's taken place over the past several years of mismanagement ? No, I thought not. They would not want to queer the pitch for themselves in power would they ? A curse on them all.

It looks like I was right about the intentions behind involving school children. Tomorrows anarchists being recruited today whilst officialdom stands idly by ? Our so called leaders are asleep at the wheel. Shameful.

Incapable of running their own organisation can we expect good answers from our WBC scoundrels ? Their only answer - tax more !

Oh dear. Now in commerce and industry heads at the top would definitely roll in very short order (or at least they used to in the days where accountability ruled) but I suspect other than some wringing of hands at the fact that their incompetence has been highlighted no further action will be taken. WBC has descended to the status of a Brian Rix farce.

We all know where this is heading. How long before we start reading the same kind of headlines that plague London and other large conurbations?

So we have a little more detail - I suspect a rise in council tax will be needed to help fund ?

One wonders what the solution is ? (guessing it will involve some taxation/revenue raising initiative).

The fact that this was a national protest took organisation and money which presumably came from an organisation or pressure group ? What may seem a 'proper' cause could in the future be seen as the thin edge of a wedge. Subverting people starts innocently at first and young minds are easily herded. To my way of thinking this should be investigated as having tasted success those behind it will not stop there.

This to me seems very a distasteful use of young people by politically motivated groups seeking to 'weaponize'  our youngsters for their own ends. What do others think ?

This reminds me of New York pre Giuliani when it was unsafe to walk the streets in large areas of the city. Fortunately his zero - tolerance and three strikes out policies dramatically improved the situation. Vacuums always fill themselves with rubbish (in this case petty offenders well on the way to becoming major criminals). Time to bring it to a stop please before it gets completely out of hand.
