    To be honest, anyone who votes no shouldn't have been intending to go in the first place.

      I'd still go even though I'd never work long enough to pay back the loan I'd get.

      If I was a few years younger, I would still definitely go, but I reckon I would make difference choices options-wise

      Perfectly well said.

      Those who choose not to go to uni because of the fees probably lack the intelligence and drive to succeed with a university education anyway.

      Yes, definately. Not going to uni isn't an option.

      If your course won't earn you enough money that you'll be able to pay for it yourself in the long term, you're a bad investment and the taxpayer shouldn't pay you through university anyway.
      End of.

      I agree with you but what if its not because they dont want to go as its too expensive but cant? Their circumstances wont allow them its not something they can choose anymore you either have the money or you dont

      the point is you dont need the money, the government will loan you it and you only have to pay back after uni when u earn 21k or more

      This is the general argument against the fee rise by the misinformed. You're not asked to pay £27,000 or whatever up front, the current student loans system remains in place, and you won't have to repay anything until you are earning over £21,000.
      So you see the argument that some people may not be able to afford to go to university is total rubbish. In fact, I believe it has been suggested that those from the poorest backgrounds will have their first two years payed for.

      I'm not sure. But I was having doubts before the fee rises - confidence crisis!

      Oh. My. God.
      It's already been stated in this thread, so I'm not even going to tell you why you're wrong.
