It's the only way we can "make Britain great again".

    Labour don't have a magic money tree. They seem to have a magic money forest.

    Good idea. Print the money. Hyper inflation. Stuff the oldies.

    In a democracy people will always vote for an easy life. Democracy always fails in the end.

    Most of that debt will never be repaid as many graduates often avoid doing do with the repayment threshold being so high. So wiping the debt away promise is already half filled.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    The "cost estimates" I've seen allow for that but what is not allowed for is that the numbers of students will inevitably rise and the cost of that rise is not just of providing more courses but loss of NI/tax they would have paid and increased difficulty for firms to find suitable employees.

    Other Corbyn policies are just expensive unnecessary bribes as well. Three examples that spring to mind:
    1) The triple lock on pensions - rising with cost of living is enough.
    2) The fuel allowance - why give that to those who are well off?
    3) Abolishing "the bedroom tax". Fair enough to exempt some, eg who have medical problems or recently lost a partner, but there is no general justification for the state paying for people to live in unnecessarily large properties.

    Wait if this idiot gets in, I think anyone who is not a state-supported non-contributor will regret it after a few years.

    Starting here:







    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.
