    When I fall into the 2012 category and have to pay the 9k per year ones? In the future is there any point in bothering to vote for any party that wants lower fees? because I really don't care about other people

    Whilst as a student or an academic it might seem important to you, there's a lot more important things I hope you'd consider, especially now the legislation has been passed.

    Yes if you have a narrow minded view on the running of the country.

    The 50p tax seems to be the only other difference between Conservative and Labour.

    The rest of their education policies are just talk no action.
    Their healthcare policies are talk no action.
    Their foreign policy is identical.
    Their welfare policy is identical.

    Fairly certain it's not. Pretty sure that's just what people who go around jumping on the "I hate politicians they are all lairs" bandwagon say.

    If you had even looked near the politics section of the news within the past few weeks, you'd say healthcare really isn't the same and neither is welfare.


    Foreign policy is identical because of America and their overbearing reign on us.


    Hope you don't get a nasty shock one day when you realise your NHS has gone to **** and you're paying to get in the door. It's headed that way

    Welfare is basically the same, all they did was try to get a 26k benefit cap (which would affect what like 3 people in the entire country?) which didn't even pass the house of lords.

    Healthcare I don't even know what they are doing, they aren't privatising it or making you pay more for it so it doesn't affect any normal people.

    It probably wouldn't be wise to vote for a party based on one thing only. Personally I don't care about making it cheap for future students. That's for them to worry about.

    The two parties capable of winning have too many similarities. The only differences are minor and have no impact on me or the country. Neither truly understands the economy or has any intentions of dealing with our debt legitimately.

    I honestly can't tell if trolling or not?

    26k cap = nobody needs to claim over 26k of benefits seriously. If you do then you are obviously the worst budgeter of all time.

    According to the BBC the healthcare thing is just about bureaucratic changes.

    So really I don't see how any of this affects the majority therefore Labour and Conservative are the same on these issues.

    If that party's only policy was 'free' education then I wouldn't vote for them. The fact is Labour has started the ball rolling for 'paid' education and it's just going to pile higher and higher as time progresses. The country will not be able to support every citizen attending university now. It's one of those things which we cannot come back to.
