That (combined with mortgages, credit card bills, everything bought on finance, lack of a decent healthcare safety net, retirement fund scandals and increasing of pension age, crippling medical and nursing costs if one survives to old age, etc) is insane.

Hey, but taxes are low!
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.

True... but Britain isn’t totally immune either. The social contract looks pretty broken to me.

It's a joke. Just another bipartisan racket for funneling taxpayer money to financiers. Government should not be in the loan guarantee business. It is little more than a conduit for graft. Expect another bailout at taxpayers expense. People should remember that, except they wont, the next time they hear a politician talk about some great government program.

And of course, whenever and wherever there is some shady lucre to be had you know who will always be front & center at the buffet table.

Yes. When Maobama and the Dumbocrats took over the university funding, it was clear as day what would happen next: University costs (and the associated loans) would soar.

See Maobamacare for details.

And keep voting left, you fucking morons.

Higher education is the biggest scam of the 21st century.
“We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.” —C.S. Lewis
