I have a few friends who are definitely in the left camp and one of them asked me what I thought of the student demos yesterday.
The only thing I could say to him was: "Well who's going to pay if not students?"
I also challenged him about whether he would be willing to pay more tax so students could get a so-called higher education - he declined.
At the end of the day, this is what it boils down to - who exactly is paying?
It is not government money, it is ours, the taxpayers.
Feel free to volunteer to pay for hairdresser degrees if you agree with the student protests but with a family to look after, tax demands and bills, don't come knocking on door!
