I put 'undecided' because whilst I was origionally totally against the rises in student fees these riots and the actions of those students involvesd are swaying me the other way.

 

Ever stopped to think that maybe the government are paying the low lifes to riot... after all it's certainly taking the sympathy vote away from the poor students and making the public despise their every action.

 

Now there's a conspiracy theory if ever there was one :shock::wink:

 

I do think though that the idiots who are rioting actually deserve to pay a damn sight more and should be banned from any form of further education... infact they should be forced to pay the fees of the students who are acting responsibly. :D

 

Off with the rioters heads

If those Royal bodyguards had used their guns to protect Chas and Camilla, the human rights Brigade would have been onto them like a ton of bricks! :roll:

 

The Royal protection officers should be sacked for NOT shooting those that were attacking the Royal Car......

I agree, the clue is in the job title, "Royal Protection Officers"

I put 'undecided' as well because although I don't think it is fair for the English to have to pay so much when the Scottish and Welsh don't, many of the students are demonstrating just to cause trouble. There is also the fact that many of them shouldn't be at university in the first place, as is demonstrated by the dismal showing of prospective teachers who can't pass their basic skills tests. If they can't pass those, why are they at university? :?

They are at University, cos the last Government promised that 50% of school leavers would go there. However, they soon discovered that this couldn't be achieved within a system of meritocracy based on the economic needs of the State; so they tinkered with the system to dumb down required qualifications and introduced a host of mickey mouse subjects to accomodate the intellectually challenged. The result: a trebling of student numbers and a corresponding increase in the overall costs to tax-payers. Meanwhile, the other 50% of school leavers were left to make their own way in life, many without the simple ability to read, write or even speak properly. As for the Scots and Welsh, I guess you'll find that the smoke and mirror exercise called devolution, allows them to pursue a different course based on funding provided by the English tax-payer. :shock:

The daily finance has an interesting take on the story; that English students will now flock to Scotland because of the fees rise here..... so if they charge the English more, they won't come and take all the places!!

 

The Scotsman say they are intending to charge ALL foreign students more, however they are the only source stating this

The latest nonsense in our dog's breakfast called devolution: Scottish Universities are planning to charge English, Welsh and Ulster students attending their UNIs. BUT, get this; it seems they can't similarly charge EU students due to EU law - beam me up Scottie

 

:shock:

 

Are english, Welsh and Ulster students not in the Eu, and if they are in the Eu would they not be entitled to the same rights as other students in the Eu. :?: Are our students exempt from Eu law :?:

 

What is this Eu law :?:
