Racist fees result in fewer Scottish university applications from England

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

SCOTTISH universities have received 5,000 fewer applications from students south of the Border wanting to take their degrees in Scotland amid claims that the recession and uncertainty over fees are causing undergraduates to stay closer to home.

That’s the Scotsman’s theory on why Scottish universities are seeing a drop in the number of English students looking to study in Scottish universities.

Nationality LotteryIt’s not the recession or uncertainty over fees that’s the problem, it’s the racial discrimination and high costs.  I appreciate that this will come as a shock to a lot of Scots and the BBC but English people haven’t been going to Scottish universities because they’re better, they’ve been going because the degrees are easier (4 years instead of 3) and because they’re cheaper.  Or they have been until the Scottish government decided to introduce racial discrimination into the Scottish education system by charging English students up to £9,000 per year for a degree in Scotland while every other “EU citizen” gets free university education largely thanks to EU laws.

If you have the choice of paying £9,000 a year for 3 years for a degree in England (thanks to tuition fees imposed on England by MPs elected in Scotland) or £9,000 a year for 4 years for the same degree with an extra year of expenses and you have to live in a hostile country where half the population hates you because of where you were born, which would you choose?

With a bit of luck Scottish universities will start running out of money soon now they’ve bitten the hand that feeds them because according to the Scottish Education Secretary an influx of Scottish students studying in English universities would bankrupt the country as the Scottish government pays the tuition fees of Scots in English universities as well.

Good luck to the English students challenging this racial discrimination in the courts.

    It’s taken English students long enough!
    When fees were first proposed, the flower of our academic youth marched through the streets protesting. Without a single mention of the fact it was only students from England who would be affected.
    But then acknowledging the existence of England would go against the pinko/lefty views of the majority of students, or perhaps more accurately, student leaders.

    This is’nt racist, its the british government.

    If i went to Uni in england, the scottish government would pay my fees, as the do here and as they would anywhere else in the EU.

    The point we are all missing is, English kids, will have to pay steep fees, where ever they go in the EU.

    aside from pedanrty over the word racist, it is the westminster\whitehall people who have done this to you

    the only students who pay full fees in england are the english students

    the only students who pay full fees in malta are english students

    the only students who pay full fees in germany are english students

    the fees you pay are not decided by where you are but by where you are from

    Our own government ?????????
    We haven’t got our own government. We’re the English remember?
    It’s the Brits who are discriminating against us, the English. I call that racial……….don’t you?

    there are 120 ish wog seats and 530 ish english seats at westminster, since the last general election, the iimportance of scotland in westminster matters is now largely irrelevant, I think the paddies have an equal value to us as well, how are the welsh voting?

    Its English MPs who are doing you, its got fuck all to do with us and our lot, though on a side note, wtf do our westminster guys do nowadays?

    It’s nuffin’ to do wiv us guvnor……..except of course for tuition fees. Which would not have been foisted on the English if the Scots had been kept out of the voting. But no! they voted for them………for England. Not for Scotland though……….of course. You call that irrelevent! I don’t
    Let me just remind you Axel, because you seem confused. England does not have a Government.
    The Government that happens to be in London England, is the UK Governnment.
    I wish you Scots would stop conflating England with Britain/UK.

    only a rough casting but it would seem to be mostly tories, who there are only 1 up here and maybe 7 lib dems, voted for the bill, from my side of the border?

    So, it would seem to be mostly English MPs, voting in the British Parliament, who screwed your kids over?

    i am so glad that those cunts in westminster can do nearly fuck all to me 🙁

    ‘SCOTTISH universities have received 5,000 fewer applications from students south of the Border’

    It probably also shows that our degrees are not really worth the money either.

  15. axel (1214 comments) says:

    just checked, 5 porridge wogs voted for ‘aye’

  16. Daggs (55 comments) says:

    Yeh! good try Axel! I was referring to the original bill. Brought in by Tony “we will not introduce university top-up fees and will legislate against them” Blair.
    Take a look at the voting figures for that, deduct the votes of Scottish constituency MP’s and hey presto! the bill falls. Thanks………………

    oh, oki, what was it called?

    I was lucky to find the one i did

  18. axel (1214 comments) says:

    found it, i make it 33 of the Ginger Brethern voted for it.

    And another thing, I have’nt heard of half of them…..

    I guess that shows how much they matter up here

  19. axel (1214 comments) says:
