Students fees STILL being pushed by Fuhrer Blair
Another lie on education from Blairs merry men in London, being
pushed down the gullets of the public in Scotland and England.
The fees of 1000 pounds a year per student are being hammered into law
by Blair and Labour in the same way as the Tories hammered their
Union Bashing policies and the poll tax into place.
And this after Labour promised more available university education
But the leading Scottish Universities of Edinburgh and St Andrews
are becoming refuges for Oxford/Cambridge rejects - these two
Scottish Universities accept many students from Eton, Wellington, Charterhouse and
Westminster schools. These children have parents who can afford the 1000 pounds
per annum. One MP was quoted as having said of this situation "If that's the egalitarian system
that we were intending to defend in the lobby tonight, I want no part of that"
