It can only be an accident of history that last month’s Royal wedding took place on the anniversary of the marriage of Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun. That the Metropolitan police carried out a number of raids, charging several students with criminal offences in the same week, is no coincidence. Cover for the police was provided by the media circus surrounding the wedding. On the other hand it is clear that the state had been biding its time, waiting for the distraction of the exam period. The most prominent and outrageous act on the part of the police was the charging of Alfie Meadows with violent disorder.
