Why is my hard earned Tax money paying for students to go on a three year drinking binge ?

I clean toilets in a well known London establishment for a living and get National Minimum Wage of £5.93 an hour for a 48 hour week. From my wages I get deducted Tax and National Insurance. Why are Students asking me to pay for them to go to University for a three year drinking binge out of my hard earned money ? Note: I never went to University because I was not clever enough to pass A levels. Most people with a degree I know earn 3 or 4 times as much as me. On doctors going to UK Universities 'An estimated 25% of NHS doctors qualified overseas. Among junior doctors the proportion from abroad has risen to 38%' Source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/898006.stm I have one child at University, I have one child who dropped out I do not want any of you to pay their fees You ask "So a graduate may ask why should they not only pay tax to fund a minimum wage workers family and working tax credits and child benefits that they wont get themselves in addition to paying back over £40k" That graduate would be a very selfish person who I would not want to contribute to anyway, and possibly an 'I'm alright Jack' Tory as well

Maybe if you had gone to University you would not be cleaning toilets for a living. I didn't get good A Levels - I worked, and THEN went to University as a mature student. Yes I had fun but I also worked, worked, worked. They don't hand out degrees just for turning up. You do actually have to study.

Sounds like your jealous of that fact people earn more then you. How would we have doctors etc if we did not pay for them to go through university. Those people who go to Uni pay their way in life after by paying more tax and NI then you do. You can not begrudge people who are brighter then you and have more... More

You might be glad that you did invest in somebody having a university degree if you need a triple heart bypass in the future - you would want somebody who is trained. Or if you have children when they go to school you would want their teacher to have been to university. Or when you retire you will want wealth... More

If everybody thought that way - there wouldn't be much of a civilisation in the country - actually come to think of it - it looks like they do and the baby boomer generation is pulling the ladder up after themselves. Your taxes pay for a lot of other things too you know.

Exactly ! When education was dumbed down and local "techs" were given University status all it did was to encourage the folks to go to "uni" to study Micky Mouse degrees which would give them no hope of a job afterwards just so they could live it up and be kept off the unemployment figures. In these hard times any... More

We all contribute to a larger society, that's how it works. That's why you or any of your family can get free health-care for instance. The proposed legislation will prevent any hope of further education for children from less well-off backgrounds so they may as well give up trying at school right now because in effect... More

Life is full of injustices. Your taxes go for students to get an education. They also go to pay teachers, nurses, binmen and people who mend your roads. Unfortunately, they also go to buy big useless missiles and bail out big useless banks. Write to your big useless MP if you have any complaints.
