    If most students never end up earning enough to pay back the fees, then what benefits are they enjoying exactly?

    Also, one can be in favour of abolishing uni fees and be in favour of better funding for vocational/non-university education.

    Strange, almost like there might be models of this outlandish scenario in the recent past or in other far off lands.

    "Clegg’s knighthood, which was widely reported in advance, is set to be particularly controversial among leave supporters, given his continued campaigning in favour of EU membership and his new book How to Stop Brexit."

    It sounds like a go’er. The new houses of parliament would not have to be right in the city centre. Trafford Park would be ok. :D

    Not been up there for years but I recall plenty of open space going down the M62 from the M6. I think it’s a good idea to move the houses of parliament up country somewhere.

    I think it's vital to help redress the huge regional inequality in the UK, which is much worse than any other equivalent nation. London can remain the financial hub of the country, like New York is with the US, but move Parliament to Birmingham, Manchester or Leeds. Not least MPs should have to deal with public transport infrastructure outside London.

    Move it to Redcar, plenty of space in the old steelworks.

    mauvais change has become unavoidable

    Manchester is rapidly becoming nu-London, and whilst it has its benefits (like my job), it's pushing up prices for normal people and doing nothing for the rest of northern England, or indeed, anywhere but London and Manchester. Regional inequality needs to be addressed by actual redistribution, not just creating a second consolidation of wealth and facilities. So Parliament would be better put somewhere that isn't already doing OK.

    Hull, Coventry or Liverpool then? I do agree that there are larger problems and it's not the whole solution, of course. It'd be a start.

    somewhere in the midlands. Theres shit transport and post industrial decline here as well. And its handy to everywhere else in the country by dint of being in the very middle. So, Northampton would be a perfect spot.

    Lutterworth. Just off the M6/M1/A14 and it would really piss off my racist step sister.

    An amusing article by the not terrible George Monbiot, but definitely illustrates the perils of talking to journalists.

    yeah i was going to post that. no recognition that she is part of a bubble world who were uniformally and repeatedly wrong about corbyn and still cant grasp why he won - twice - , why owen smith was such an obviously shit candidate and why corbyn did so well in the general election.
    Whereas us plebs called it right. Maybe recruiting all your staff from the oxbridge chumocracy isn't the best strategy if you want people who have a vague clue about what actually goes on outside of your little glee club.
