Just like US the Brits got too used to free shite and now always expect it and feel entitled to it so long as other people pay for it. CHeers!

Yada’s point being that Brit students mistake a privilege freely given by the tax-payer for a birth right? Sadly, I am now inclined to agree.
Clare S (& like) convinced me, quote,“Clare Solomon, President of the University of London Student Union, said she had "no problem with direct actions or occupation" and predicted a growing wave of similar protests in coming months; adding,“These were a few windows of the Tory Party headquarters - what they're doing to our education is absolutely millions… and they want to complain about a few windows."
I am no Tory and I am not rich. I do not complain, I am saying Clare’s advice is irresponsible and bordering on incitement. Leadership positions (like respect) have to be earned, not demanded.
“[Mr Porter] says students have been successfully making the case that the coalition government has never had a mandate to make such far-reaching changes.”
True, but the Coalition promises were made before the scale of the damage done by the outgoing Labour government was fully realised.
“The UK eventually sold about 395 tons of gold over 17 auctions from July 1999 to March 2002, at an average price of about US$275 per ounce, raising approximately US$3.5 billion”
The current price of an ounce of gold reached $1900 an oz at one point and looks likely to go well over $2000 in the coming months.
“The trend of the last few years suggests that price of gold may go up by 22-25% in the current year”, says the NYT this month.
It is not really about the money though, but about fairness. Why should I take a low wage and orders from a Univ grad who feels ‘entitled’ to my tax money for his/her education?
It is also necessary to consider the low estimation of university students in the eyes of modern employers. The new wisdom seems to be –‘Those who can do, do. Those who cannot do, go to university.’ More and more firms are employing people with good A level grades (17 & 18 year old high flyers) and training them properly, instead of getting some useless dimwit who can pass univ exams.
“The assumption that a degree is needed for the best jobs appears to be fading, with some blue-chip firms reporting keen interest in schemes aimed at school leavers.”
UK universities have run 1,000 duff media courses too many. If you want to succeed, avoid a degree and the debt that comes with it.
