Your future: debt
by Giles Turnbull
Today’s message to students-to-be is simple: hey kids, welcome to debt!
The new government website aimed at students-to-be is all about debt. How much debt will I be in? How will I pay it back? When will I finish paying it back?
It’s totally the wrong message to send to people. Come to university, accrue enormous debts, but worry about it all later.
I grew up hating the Tories because of their attitude to education. Now I hate Labour, and the Tory/ConDem alliance, for coming up with this disastrous mess instead.
