The real injustice is that a University education should be free but only to those who actually want to work at their degree. Of the 40,000 students in the UOM probably two thirds are completely wasting their and the University's time. But with the dumbing down of A-Levels and the dumbing down from O-level & CSE to GCSE everyone has to treated on the same level playing field. This now leaves us with no really clever academics anymore and no cannon fodder to the dirty jobs. So we have to employ people who were not born here and that encourages truck loads more to come and claim off our generosity. We only have ourselves to blame for this ridiculous situation as we have fostered such stupid ideas in the classrooms since the mid 70s. We have the chance to redress the trend but I doubt anyone will have the gonads to do so.
