Apparently the students were pretty pissed off about the recent tuition hike which now states that an increase in annual university tuition fees will hit a maximum of 9,000 pounds – about $14,000 USD – yearly, though the fees are covered by government student loans and only have to be paid back once students are earning at least $33,100.
They were so angry that they broke a window on the vehicle, doused the car with white paint, and screamed a chant of, ‘Off with their heads!’ … Thanks for the dramatics, for real.
I guess my question is – what the hell are these kids bellyaching about? You want to go to college and you can’t scrape by on grants and scholarships, what do you expect is going to happen? Dun-dun-dun … student loans. Yeah, university costs are sometimes ridiculous, but it’s kind of a supply-and-demand kind of thing. If cost is going to be a problem for you down the road, here’s my suggestion – DON’T FUCKING GO. Most people I know (uh, myself included) have to pay student loans monthly (let’s try four hundred a month, for starters) and don’t make dick their first year out of college. Or their second. Or sometimes even their third or fourth. And you know what? That’s life, baby.
I guess these kids didn’t get the memo that Britain is supposed to be the ‘Land of Good Manners.’
