The UK may not be as bad as the US for libel and slander type cases. Butthe reality is there for someone to get taken to court for things said online. Laws have been put in place for this, and they will be used. Yeah sure, I could get a grip. But I'd rather that idtiots didn't say crap that is baseless rubbsih, which could well ammount to slander, which, if you check the law, can land people in alot of trouble. Or at least, have them a heafty bill to pay. It's called taking responsibility for your actions. Something which completly bypasses many.

1) The Royals have nothing to do with tuition rates. The monarch stopped playing a role in setting government policy back in the 1700s. Government policy is dictated by the prime minister and Parliament that you elected.
2) College is a privilege, not a right. Boo friggen hoo if you have to pay for it like everybody else on the planet.
BBC: Charlie Gilmour jailed for student fees demo violence
Charlie Gilmour, son of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, has been jailed for 16 months for a rampage at a student fees protest in central London.
Gilmour, 21, was accused of throwing a bin at a convoy of cars containing Prince Charles, sitting on a protection officer's car and smashing a window.
The Cambridge University student, of Billingshurst, West Sussex, was bailed in May so he could finish his exams.
Kingston Crown Court heard he had taken '___' and valium before the incident.
Gilmour was among thousands of people who protested in Trafalgar Square and Parliament Square on 9 December 2010.
