I think Daveo and his med friends should be forced to stay and serve their country for at least 10 years after they graduate. If necessary, their passports should be revoked.
:rolleyes:

You can't force people to work if they don't want to.

no, but you DO have to pay them benefits for not adding anything to the economy - maybe we've found a better source of finding the ~£9bn that is apparently needed to 'save' the uk's uni's. just dont pay bums to sit around. :rolleyes:

Passports revoked? The BMA would love that, and medics would be much more tempted to use their degree in well-paid specialities such as law, meaning that the £250,000 costs in training doctors would be completely wasted. Unfortunately for people who agree with the "forced to stay" theory, we can't force doctors to actually practice medicine when they actually have the degree.

yep, 5 votes, meaning that if just 3 more people, out of around 700 had stuck to their guns, the government would have suffered a humiliating defeat. i'll say it again - 3 out of 700 ppl. disgraceful.
and you can bet the party whips were out in full force today to ensure that majority of 5 votes.
I'd like to point out that the fact that the 40-odd Scottish Labour MPs were allowed to vote on this issue is scandallous. Why should they be allowed to vote on a matter that doesn't concern Scotland? (I'm Scottish, btw, and still think it's wrong). Even if only 5 Scottish MPs voted for the bill, then that's how it got through. If they hadn't been allowed to vote, Blair would have fallen flat on his face. *seethes with rage at Blair's arrogance*

Unfortunately, the people who actually decide who gets to vote on this issue are the ones needing the votes in the first place.

i think you've probably answered your own question about why they were allowed to vote even though it doesn't concern them - without them, those extra 3 people might have been lost

Judging by the smile on Tony Blair's face, I don't think he has that much to worry about.

Oh, I don't know. I think Lord H would speak his mind if he really thought the PM was primarily to blame.
