Why have picked on students moreson then other demographics? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    University cuts have been much larger then cuts to anywhere else. If any other departments had been cut by such a large amount then there would of been a huge backlash.

    I am not criticising you here, but maybe it is to do with career politicians chasing votes. If you cut education you will lose less votes then if you cut pensions simply because people affected by education cuts cannot vote. How is it fair that we should pay such a disproportionate amount due to a crisis which your generation caused? We have absolutely no say whatsoever and yet get punished the most. That surely is unfair. What is your response?

    In addition do you think that it is democratic for the Liberal Democrats to build their campaign on cutting tuition fees and then to completely change their minds when they get into power. They were voted in with a promise to do something. It is undemocratic to then change your mind when that is what the people who voted for them wanted. Do you think that Lib Dem politicians who heavily relied on students to get in to power honestly have the right to be MPs? And this is a more broad question, not specifically about tuition fees, if were any issue, do you think its democratic?

    Thanks for your time.
