Yes citizens, that is the conclusion drawn by the anonymous author of YADHE (Yet Another Disgraceful Herald Editorial) – An expensive fix which has little purpose
The economy is strong in large part because public spending is under control. Expensive proposals that waste money purely for political gain could put the country’s prosperity in peril.
Spending money on education instead of tax cuts for the rich (which is what they money is currently budgeted for) is going to put our economy in peril! Obviously!
Why change the funding system now? Or to put it another way, what problem is this policy designed to fix?
The policy is designed to fix the problem of student debt – a crushing burden which blights the lives of young people and drives many of them (with their expensive new skills) right out of the country. You, dear writer, might have understood the problem if you’d been saddled with student debt yourself, but you weren’t, were you. Idiot.
