    Ok Guys, unless some magic happens we probably all agree that the house will vote in favour next thursday. So taken this as given, what will you do?

    If I was applying for 2012 I would 'stomach the pain' and pay.

    I don't know why anyone would tick 'can't afford studying, have to find a job' as everyone can afford it; you need to word it better tbh.

    You don't have to 'Stomach the pain and pay' or the 'Can't afford studying, have to find a job'. I wish some posters here would read what the bill will entail before posting rubbish.

    I have very little sympathy for Lib Dem voters, particularly the ones who selfishly voted for them simply because they would abolish tuition fees.

    Tory and Labour voters have been telling you lot for years that Lib Dems are full of crap and could get away with promising anything they liked on the basis that they would never be in power to enact any of them. So many people were sucked in by this empty rhetoric during the TV debates pre-election and are now suddenly up in arms, throwing fire extinguishers about over Clegg's alleged backtracking. Get real.

    How is a tax rise not a pain you have to stomach?

    Can't afford, sure I understand your point there, but its still a decrease in future living standards compared o the year group before.

    Am I right in believing that the hike in tuition fees won't affect current uni students?

    If I'm wrong, then i'll probably feel a bit of a lurch in my stomach. But I guess begrudgingly i'd have to pay. I'm already 1 year into it, after all.

    That's right, it only affects students starting courses in 2012 onwards, not those who are already in uni.


    If the Bill is passed, then I pledge to strike Nick Clegg off my Christmas card list.
    Oh who am I kidding, I could never stick to such a promise...

    You may have just made my day. Certainly a bit of a weight off my shoulders...

    As another poster has pointed out, the "can't afford studying" option doesn't make sense. The government does (and will) loan everyone who needs money to go to university.
