There will be more parliamentary votes over fees and the Education Maintenance Allowance. And, as the protests against the cuts show, other issues will rise to become the focus for the whole movement.

During this year’s protests in France over pensions, a popular slogan was “What parliament does, the streets can undo”. Here, if the revolt develops, the Tories and Lib Dems can be blown away like the scum they are.

We need bigger numbers to win. And we need the social power of workers to guarantee victory. That will be the most effective preparation for the battles to come.

What happens now can build for a strike by hundreds of thousands of public sector workers over pensions in the new year, and for the TUC demonstration against cuts on 26 March. We need to bring down this rotten government. And the best way to do that is a general strike.
