    One of the benefits if a university degree is that the average graduate is expected to have a higher income than those who did not study at university. The average graduate therefore will make a larger contribution to public services through their taxes. So why should a graduate be forced both to pay both higher taxes and raised tuition fees for their degree?
    What it seems has been done is taken the worst aspects from socialist and capitalist systems and amalgamated them in order to punish anyone with aspirations of a university education.

    I absolutely agree with you, Uni tuition should be paid through taxes as graduates tend to pay more tax than non-grads.

    The impact of burdening our young with massive debts will shore up huge problems for the future and economically cripple this country.

    Of course people who have GCSES earn more money than those without....perhaps they should contribute to thierr highschool education. In fact what about those who can read and write....surely they earn more and have more advantages than those who don't...perhaps they should pay back their primary school costs?

    Oh I forgot that's what taxes are for, paying for education that benefits all society.

    I think there should be higher ed reform but what the government is doing is monsterous and will backfire nastily.

    The psychological impact of these debts on the next generation will be devastation, I already think the current debts are catastrophic.

    Imagine a young graduate couple with debts of £45k each. By the time they are earning 21k they will be wanting to get married, get a mortgage perhaps have children. They will be saddled 90k of debt and at a considerable interest rate. Any accountant will tell them that before saving money they should clear their debts in order to avoid gaining high levels of interest. This means they will be put off getting married, a mortgage and having kids. The social impact of this will be huge, but will not be seen for another ten years.

    All the money from this should go to restoring the Catholic church to its once powerful status, it is obvious that society cannot survive without christian influence

    Because the catholic church has, and always will be, the rightful church, and we must save what we can of society after the Godless caused a drift in morals and tradition, which a large majority of the population in England will not support.

    To be perfectly honest mate, god is not a part of my life, and my life is as good as it can be at the moment (within reason).
    I mean, unless you're telling me that an hour in church every Sunday will either get me a Porsche, make beautiful women rip off their clothes in front of me, allow me to unify the theory of gravity with quantum electrodynamics or make me crap money, I'm not interested in god in the slightest.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm a good citizen and all that jazz. I'm probably more tolerant than most Christians (mainly because I'm more tolerant than most people, that I know in my ****hole of a town anyway). I'm happy and I'm a good person (if I do say so myself). God is not needed in my life in the slightest.
    Society is fine without god. If you want him, that's cool, but he isn't a necessity.

    Exactly, Lord Brown himself said that in 2008, the average graduate will earn £100,000 more than a non-graduate over their lifetime.
    20% of that is snapped up in tax, meaning the average graduate contributes £20,000 to the state that a non-graduate would not.

    That £20,000 is enough to have paid for their tuition - so why do we pay additional fees?
