    I don't think it works both socially or financially, it would be more effective if we only lowered to £4000 or something affordable but not as a deterrent. Thoughts?

    the only way that can happen is if the government go massively into debt so. Yes they could do it but it wouldn't be a good idea
    yeah that's true but we haven't really improved ever since the tuition fee was raised so

    Yes I do believe in it, and rich ppl/businesses should pay for it.

    Well back in 2010 when it was agreed it would be raised the governments bank balance was not good. They needed to find money from somewhere in order to stimulate the economy.
    do you yourself find the tuition too high

    Good luck getting them to pay for it there is always another way to tax dodge for them
    People who hide their taxes should be punished! Why is there one rule for the rich and another for the rest?

    Yes it is high but it is a conscious decision one makes when they choose university
    or make them more conscious of unis in other countries or not going to uni at all

    Please Rate Some Other Member.... I tried to give it a thumbs-up, but apparently I've been too positive about RogerOxon (whoever he is - sounds very dodgy to me!) posts in recent times.

    We are all governed buy the same rules they just decide to jump out of them by moving there money to other country's. There isnt alot the government can do about that
    Government should focus their efforts on cutting loopholes instead of cutting benefits and hurting the most vulnerable in our society.

    Exactly people need to choose if they want to take the risk of being in debt of going to unis or taking a different opportunity such as an apprenticeship
    taking that denmark, norway, sweden, austria, switzerland have very low tuitions and are both economically stable and have a good cohort of intelligent people, shouldn't we follow them?

    yeah but realistically nothing is free
    If college and hs is free then so should uni tbh. But that would never happen in the UK. They should reduce it to £3000.

    Bad troll is bad.

    Only the plebs demand free tuition because they're poor.

    Besides, I doubt Socialist Corbyn would be able to follow through on his promises.

    Keep dreaming, lefties.
