He seemed (unsurprisingly) relieved.
Since he already knows the outcome of the Hutton Inquiry, I would think that he is off the hook.

i live with my mum, and she is on benefit, therefore i get reductions, grants and bursaries and pay way less......?????

this seems quite good from my perspective!

"from 2004, a new grant for living costs of up to £1,000 for family incomes below £21,185 - rising to £1,500 from 2006
universities charging maximum fees will have to fund bursaries of at least £300 for the poorest students.
families earning less than £30,000 would be exempt from up to the first £1,200 of fees - known as "fee remission"

sorry, i am useless with politics, but from my perspective (or my mum's), is this good for me?

I think it means that with even all that stuff you will be living on Tesco Value beans and reduced end of the day bread for 3 years

Because the course costs so much. I'm not necessarily in agreement with this, but this seems to be the thinking.

because the bill contradicts the proposed "aims" by gayboy blair, but as they r the only people who vote then he doesnt really give a toss about what happens - he hasnt thought about it.

Yeah, but so what if the course is expensive? Society benefits from Doctors, so society should pay for them to get qualified.

I guess time will see if it works or not. For or it or against it at least the universities can get a little bit extra money now.

Tony Blair paid no tuition fees for his degree!
So why should a doctor now face having to pay upto £64000 to help people?

yes, but that would make sense, thats not what the bill is about.

the bill is there to make students angry and to annoy people.

You could say that about many degrees.
But, in essence, I agree. This country needs to attract more Medical students.

present fees! 1125

new fees 3000

grant 1500
bursary 300
3000 - 1500 - 300 = 1200

You will now have to pay £75 more to goto uni! Even though you dont pay till you graduate.

Maybe. There are intelligent people, but there's also people like bono.

I try not to be nasty but when people say stuff like that it's kinda one-sided, which I do have a problem with.
Who do you support?

Fundamentally, we shouldn't pay for education at all. As society becomes more developed, it needs a higher trained workforce, and so the Gvt. should extend the level of core - or free - education to university level.
