In Full . . .

Looking for an answer

I was very disappointed that no one on the panel at the pre-election forum at Alvechurch Baptist Church gave a straight answer to my question – that only English students have to pay the extortionate fees while the Welsh and Scottish students pay nothing; the same goes for prescription charges.

My question was WHY? I have come to the conclusion that it is because Wales and Scotland have their own parliament and out of the money they are given out of the big pot, they decided to pay for the education of their youngsters.

As we do not have an English parliament, our students are discriminated against. Can anyone tell me if this is correct? A simple yes or no would help.

If I am correct, again my question is why? We all put our money into the big pot and it should be shared equally. Why do politicians never answer the questions they are asked?
