    Pointless petition. Prices go up. Even if everyone voted for it they will still do it. The only thing they would take notice of would be a significant reduction in student numbers.

    who gives a toss

    for the huge, overwhelming majority of students your student loan will pay your tuition, and for the huge overwhelming majority of loans, the actual value of the loan makes approximately no difference to the amount you'll repay. the fact that your fees are higher is very unlikely to mean you have to pay more

    assuming it's still repayment plan 2 anyway
