Students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland who go to university in Scotland could face annual fees of up to £6,000, D.L. has learned.
The plan is believed to be in a Scottish government Green Paper on education funding for the future.
Scottish students studying at home currently pay no tuition fees, but the SNP administration's paper is thought to contain plans for a graduate tax.
Quite right too. That's £3000 less than in England and if Scottish universities want to compete with England they will have to get more money from somewhere. Non-Scot students, get a degree here and usually then go back home taking the skills that they have learnt here, in Scotland, with them. Like that useless twat, who is second heir to the throne, Willie.
For too long the British economy has floated on what should have been Scotland's bounty, oil. Now that the British banking system has failed, thanks to lax controls by Labour, someone must pay the piper. Some may say that RBS, is a Scottish bank. Well, it had it's HQ in Edinburgh as do many financial institutions, but it has been paying tax to the British Treasury since 1707 and it's owned by the Rothschild group as part of the Inter-Alpha banking group and personally speaking, I don't see why we should be bailing out those bastards anyway. Particularly as they will hold some of the bonds that the British Government has issued to pay the debt.
Is it just me, or is that crazy, OR IS IT CORRUPT?
