1. Going to university is about to be a rich-kids-only sport.
Maintenance grants to students from low-income families have stopped. These grants were initially given to students who have neither a trust-fund nor Ma’ and Pa’ to fall back on when they run out of cash. They have been the lifeline for many students studying at university and have traditionally been used to pay for accommodation costs. Our government, made out of elitist public-school toffs, have taken this away and said that students now need to add this cash to the already gargantuan debt of £44,000 they are expected to leave their studies with. Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats Party said, “This is a very frightening prospect for young people and their parents… (The Tories) don’t understand what it is like to struggle.”
