Fixed that.

I resent that :(

The rally did make me laugh though. Hard to see if anything constructive's actually come out of it. Students already in universities won't be affected by the rise of fees (I hope I won't be wrong)

You are wrong to the best of my knowledge.
I greatly enjoyed the reference, Joe.

Hmm, where'd you hear this? Can't find any help about it online apart from forums and we all know how reliable they can be :P

Students.

They're a funny bunch, really.

Head of sixth form/deputy head/form tutor. As I said, rising fee's are a worry, so I voiced my concern to make sure I was making the right choice with uni.

I meant existing university students. It'd be unfair to hike fees halfway through a degree.

I'm almost certain that can't happen. You agree to a set fee at the beginning of your course. You pay in yearly instalments, but you're still paying towards the overall thing. The only change your fee is subject to is inflation.

It should only affect students starting in 2012 and afterwards.

There are 6 people in my team at work, soon to be 3 in January. One is off on long term sick so that's realistically going to leave 2.

One of my colleagues whose leaving wants Christmas Eve off on annual leave, can't blame her. They've said no as it would only leave 2 people in and we need 3 for that date. Image


The public sector, got to love it. God help them come January.

Didn't happen to me, and 2006/7 was my third year when the £3k top up fees came in.

we have The Expendables on and haven't actually watched any of it due to being too engrossed in Sporcle quizzes.
