None of your trade union malarkey here

According to the BBC, when120 pupils held a walk-out protest at school over cuts in their lunch break, they were met by a police patrol the following morning. Wait, it gets better:

Since then, Ten pupils have been suspended during three days of protests over a decision to cut the lunch break from one hour to 30 minutes.

The demonstrations at Flegg High, Martham, near Yarmouth, were sparked on Monday by headteacher Cherry Crowley's decision - which was taken without prior consultation with parents or pupils.

Speaking last night, Mrs Crowley remained adamant she was right to have implemented new 30-minute staggered lunch breaks for health and safety reasons.

Nice to see young people being educated on the importance of negotiation skills, the right to protest and the unacceptability of bullying.
