No Tuition Fee Reforms This Year

More than 500,000 students have been apportioned a tremendous setback after a Tory minister ruled out extreme reforms to education fees this year. Sam Gyimah declared it wouldn’t be credible to complete a purposed shake-up merely months after he took the position of universities minister.

It means those starting university in September 2018 face paying fees of £9,250 a year and above-inflation interest on their loans, currently at 6.1 percent. That’s despite them starting their education nearly a whole year after Theresa May began her major review of student funding at the 2017 Tory conference.

Mr Gyimah informed the BBC that while tuition fees were a problem, and that living costs were also a dilemma, what he wants to do is look at the entire arrangement of student finance in the round and it’s got to be done very precisely and quite orderly.

When he was questioned if improvements would happen in time for September 2017, Mr Gyimah stated that if he were to say that the government will conduct a review of our whole higher education system and be done in seven months, that would not be likely.

It wasn’t conceivable for him to respond and it wasn’t a conceivable timeframe within which to do that piece of work.


Tory MP Justine Greening, who was removed as Education Secretary in Theresa May’s reorganisation, asked for a more progressive policy than maintenance loans to meet students’ living expenses and loans which replaced grants for the disadvantaged were wrongly leaving hard-up scholars with more debt by the time they graduate.

She advised she had been against a wide-scale review of student finance while in office because the danger of a review is that you just kick things into the long grass and she recommended the money raised from tuition fees should be ring-fenced for the higher education system and figures from admissions service the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) show 650,000 people applied for university positions last year.

Political parties always say vote for us and we will do this and that for you and then they respond with or think that we were stupid enough to choose them and then they do nothing that they promised, however, nobody should be surprised by this!

Education is, of course, a cash cow as is pension schemes. Privatisation is a cash cow and utilities are a cash cow, rents are cash cows and the nation has come to a point where you have to pay to prove your own existence and we’re simply a commodity.

My vision on life is pretty broad, therefore I like to address specific subjects that intrigue me. Therefore I really appreciate the world of politics, though I have no actual views on who I will vote for, that I will not tell you, so please do not ask! I am like an observation station when it comes to writing, and I simply take the news and make it my own. I have no expectations, I simply love to write, and I know this seems really odd, but I don't get paid for it, I really like what I do and since I am never under any pressure, I constantly find that I write much better, rather than being blanketed under masses of paperwork and articles that I am on a deadline to complete. The chances are, that whilst all other journalists are out there, ripping their hair out, attempting to get their articles completed, I'm simply rambling along at my convenience creating my perfect piece. I guess it must look pretty unpleasant to some of you that I work for nothing, perhaps even brutal. Perhaps I have an obvious disregard for authority, I have no idea, but I would sooner be working for myself, than under somebody else, excuse the pun! Small I maybe, but substantial I will become, eventually. My desk is the most chaotic mess, though surprisingly I know where everything is, and I think that I would be quite unsuited for a desk job. My views on matters vary and I am extremely open-minded to the stuff that I write about, but what I write about is the truth and getting it out there, because the people must be acquainted. Though I am quite entertained by what goes on in the world. My spotlight is mostly to do with politics, though I do write other material as well, but it's essentially politics that I am involved in, and I tend to concentrate my attention on that, however, information is essential. If you have information the possibilities are endless because you are only limited by your own imagination...
