    If your family income is above the threshold, then you should have enough money to afford accommodation. Isn't that the whole point? I guess you should go to a university that provides suitably priced accommodation then.
    oh yes because that sort of money will go far if you live somewhere in London, or if you have a few children, or pre existing debts, or sending more than one child to uni, or looking after an elderly relative.

    Have some sympathy, it is clearly not as simple as you make out.

    that everybody should be treated as equals


    believe it or not most people don't appear to agree with this

    Everyone agrees with this.

    Everyone being treated as equal =/= everyone being equal

    The environment should be at least as important as the economy.

    Don't know how controversial that is in terms of wider public opinion. But the political establishment doesn't take environmental protection very seriously when there is money to be made from damaging activities, and there is no sign of that changing.
    I completely agree with that!! without a stable environment the economy we know would be in ruins

    Multiculturalism offers little to no benefits to a western country, as lovely as the word 'vibrancy' is.

    Also diversity has no meaningful impact on the ability of a workforce.

    1. What the west calls democracy isn't democracy its a load of bull****.
    2. Capitalism as a force of evil not good, it is the economy of greed.
    3. smoking should be banned in all public spaces
    4. Our society is ****ed up, we glorify our drinking culture and celebrity culture and don't care about meaningful things like literature and science.
    5. All nukes should be abolished in the world and armies should be severely reduced.
    6. America and Britain is just as evil as Russia and china.
    7. Homosexuality is both a result of environmental and genetic factors but all people should be treated equally and no one should be persecuted and no violence should be committed, we have to love and respect one another.
    8. And finally : there should not be such a concept as a nation, the whole world should unify under one banner and we should explore and colonise space

    The standing army should be reduced in size or abolished. Private gun ownership ought to be made legal subject to minor background checks.

    1) That measures should be taken to severely restrict the sale of cigarettes and alcohol in this country.

    2) There is no 'war' on drugs.

    3) We should reintroduce the death penalty.

    These are 3 of mine.
    1) That wouldn't decrease their usage, they would just be sold illegally, the same way people buy illegal drugs now.

    2) They are fighting a 'war' on drugs, but as with any addiction/health issue punishing those using doesn't improve anyones situation.

    3) Ridiculous. Give me your reasons why. It doesn't work as a deterrant to crime, found with higher crime statistics in US states that do have the death penalty compared to those that don't.
    You cannot morally say something is wrong, and then enforce it as revenge on criminals.
    There are a number of cases of criminals found to be innocent after the death penalty has already been applied to them.

    I'm just going to be honest- I don't think big women can typically be as attractive as skinny women. I will clarify that I think some bigger women are more attractive than some skinnier women however as a whole its just easier for skinny women to look good. And to answer the questions I'm now concerned I'll get-
    1. No I don't condone girls being encouraged to starve themselves to be considered attractive.
    2. No I'm not particularly superficial. This is just a thought I have on one particular issue.
    3. Yes obviously there is such a thing as too skinny. Size 0 isn't healthy.
