    Would students who start in 2017 be liable to get their fees raised? Or would it be consistent for the entire duration of study?

    The article says for students beginning in those years. Not for existing students on that basis.

    The government just loves to con young people out of money. The fees go up every year "due to inflation", yet the repayment threshold remains completely unchanged since 2012.

    It's called a resource based economy and it is not beyond reach.

    High rise buildings everywhere. Haven't they been proved harmful to people's mental health? Is that really a desirable future?

    The students this will effect are 17-year-olds, who can't vote.

    How do charges by UK unis compared to those in the US?

    everyone claims US tuition fees are ridiculous but they can't be that much more for public unis.

    You are allowed to go to university if you're over 18. Almost half are, in fact.

    But that's beside the point. When the fees first went up to £9,000 it was the NUS organising protests (+/- anti-conservative riots) in London. It didn't effect those students, but they still went. The same applies here - if all those students who went to the protest turned out to vote instead, then the government would be substantially more cautious about ramping the Young Person Tax up and up because they know they'd be penalised by the under-25 vote.
