Students Unite!

In France they are used to student protests. They happen with monotonous regularity. In this country, students are expected to quietly sit back and put up with the SH** handed out by politicians. Flying fire-extinguishers seem to be the narrow focus of the media but no one seems to touch on the arrogant hypocrisy of escalating university fees which will inevitably squeeze the less affluent in our society out of academic opportunities and a worthwhile future.
 
University education is to become the province of rich men's sons and why? Is it because Poly means many in Greek? Or maybe it's because tics are blood-sucking parasites? Politics and politicians. Most of them are so steeped in hypocrisy that the self-serving lying creeps promise one thing to get elected then make excuses for not following their own policies.
 
I had a free education. I had a grant. I became a doctor. Am I supposed now to look back and smugly and say we can't afford that anymore?
 
Personally, although taxation is crippling, I wouldn't mind paying an extra two pence in the pound to obtain free university places for all.
 
Would you?
