I should have known.
I really should have known – after the farce that was the media reception [sorry, rejection] of a MAN BEING PULLED FROM HIS WHEELCHAIR [from our BBC], no-one in government gives a flying faeces about the future of the poor.
I was the first person to go to university in my family – I may well have been the last.
The government informs us that “…the poorest will fair better under the new system” but when the poorest see their future debt would be £45k [yes, that IS a 35% deposit on a house where I come from] because they wanted to learn, they’ll give up on learning.
Giving up on learning is tantamount to giving up on the world, on the future, and on humanity.
The only poor that will apply to university now are those with no hope for their future, no care about themselves or their families; and only those with nothing to lose and who are at the end of the tether will actually apply – leading us into a scenario of hatred frothing under all Higher Education at those running the system and those truly benefiting from it – in short, all out class war and subterfuge.
And people ask me why I dress like it’s the Victorian era – IT IS THE FUCKING VICTORIAN ERA.
Watch as the poor loose their teeth, their health and their happiness while fat, smug fucks walk by and laugh in their soap-scented bubble as they kick mud away from themselves and onto everyone else.
I am more than annoyed.
