Given that seems to be sporadically up and down for most people this morning I thought it might be helpful if I copied the document and put it up on my own webspace to try and distribute the workload.

The first round points can be accessed at

The “Australian Model” of college payment – where the Government lends you your fees, and you pay them back once you reach an income threshold, is NOT a fee-free scheme, despite what you might have insisted on Pat Kenny’s radio show yesterday.

I wasn’t one of the 15,000 out on the streets today – academia saw to that – but being from a family that has taken two major pay cuts in the last twelve months, and with a little brother 18 months from college, fees will see him probably attending a university in Scotland – and maybe not coming back.

The Brain Drain is back, people. And it’s not my generation’s fault.
