So, Nick Clegg has asked students to “examine the fees proposals before taking to the streets,” suggesting that they “listen and look” before “marching and shouting.” (BBC News).

I have to admit that I’ve not properly examined the proposals in detail, but then I haven’t been marching and shouting, either – and Mr Clegg’s comments seem fair to me.

Meanwhile the National Union of Students have objected, urging Mr Clegg to “show a little humility."

Having seen this, however, one might be forgiven for wondering if the NUS actually know what showing humility means.
