Warwick or York. Not too bad, but not quite the same, either.

How is the government going to spend more, by raising taxes? Mhmhmh. Let me think...well perhaps with the surplus raised in the taxes they collected!
( I am 19)
well seeing as the government is currently running a huge deficit . . .

Come on, you study economics you must have studied the economic problems that charitable contributions create and the possible (better) alternatives?
whoever said i am studying economics. Better alternatives like the state providing for the poor (which i dont want with my money) and i am not necessarily talking about individual contributions to a perrson, give to a charity as even the foudner of the big issue (albeit slightly biased) syas don't give money to people on the street.

I think most historians at one point have considered reading Law. I did consider it, but am so glad that i didnt choose to do it. History is much more interesting in my opinion, and many solicitors/barristers initially read History at university. History is great training for those who want to then go and practice Law. As for PPE, it sounds an excellent course, but admittedly i didn't want to have to do too much work at university.

But it does add an extra year on before you can become a lawyer, because you have an extra conversion course year. Although that pretty much sums up what i am thinking, although i love various aspects of politics, philosphy and economics that i wouldnt consider it all work.

An extra year is nothing in the scheme of things. PPE and similar courses at the top unis IS a lot of work, verging on the ridicoulous. At my Oxford briefing, we were told that we should expect an essay and a half there. Ie. One essay a week, and one essay a for a fortnight. It may not sound a lot, but bear in my mind the amount of reading and research that has to go into preparation. The thing with reading History at university is that the individual can do as much or as little work as they want. It's a lonely subject.

oh yeah and the countries that are in economic troubles and are spoiling the euro for the rest of the european countries, have awesome job security and pension plans but they are losing growth and therefore will soon start having unemployment. Plus socialsim leads to totalitarianism e.g. Communism, Nazis
go and read F.A. Hayek's - The Road To Serfdom and read some newspapers and history books and then tell me that is the stupidest thing you have ever heard.

(btw this is to the person that gave me neg rep)

(i'm not the one who gave you negative rep, but....)

i wouldn't say it was the stupidest thing i've ever heard....but it is an insultingly simplistic representation of what is an already fairly tenuous theory.

and besides, just because something is in a book doesn't mean it's true...
