    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8379671.stm

    Well, now that tutition fees are rising even more it is only logical to assume that some students will be trying to save as much money as they can while they are at university and a higher proportion of the female student population may turn to strip clubs/prostitution as a way to bring in extra revenue. I believe I am the first person to make this link and I assure you all in the next few years we will be reading this in the papers. This is not exactly the kind of family friendly Britain which David Cameron would want and I think this will obviously end up being be an embarrassment for him. Maybe then he will see the damage that these American like expenses are doing to us.

    How so? You know this is a logical arguement. There is correlation between young women's need for money and the amount of strippers. You can't "lmao" this off and pretend it doesn't exist just because you don't want to talk about it.

    It isn't a logical argument - Firstly correlation does not equal causation. Secondly your conclusion of " higher fees = more strippers" is very much so overdrawn as an article on a very very small sample size is hardly enough evidence to back up the claim. There are other methods of raising money besides prostitution also.

    It's a suggestion, which may be possible.

    What else do you think is the reason for current female students turning to stripping/prostitution? Obviously need of money is a cause.

    I think we both know that need of money is the only probable reason. However, people do many things when in financial distress- If tuition fees increased a student could move back in with her parents, sell her belongings, quit... It is a personal decision- if you re-read your argument you are proposing that in the basis of one girls story that the number of prostitutes would increase, it is of course a possibility like all things but it is not strong enough to use the word "will" instead of "could"

    Of course it is possible - see my later response - but far too weak to propose it will increase...

    I don't see why women would need to turn to stripping to cover the higher tuition fees because they will be covered by loans. The only reason women would need to become strippers is if they lower the maintenance loan/grant, which AFAIK they're not changing.

      No, you are stating a false cause-effect relationship. The higher tuition fees will not cause women to become strippers and/or prostitutes. It is the woman herself that will make the conscious decision to do so. Higher tuition fees are not forcing anyone to do anything.

      Seriously, can people get their facts right? From the Browne review, no university will be able to charge the full £9000 pa unless they help students from disadvantages backgrounds and have measures in place so they will not be put off from university due to their financial background.

      In addition, do people not realise that there are grants/bursaries in place to help students in need of money? Of course this is dependent on the specific institution but the principle still applies. There is help available if you are willing to find it yourself. Of course, there may be options to undertake part-time work, or employment of some sort; and information should be found at your (future) university's student union.

      Of course, you students could just stay off the drink... /ad hominem

        Yes, only the "stupid" (for want of a better word) would turn to prostitution to fund their education.

        There is help available if you are willing to find it.
