Soo much in this since I checked.
Julia, I agree that it's unfair that English students have to pay while other EU students don't- last time I checked England (as part of GB) was EU! However, will point out that Scots do pay tuition etc if they study outside Scotland.
Daisy, we don't agree on many things and this is just one more to add to the list. Yes there are a lot of things that don't change much however you vote in, but there are differences and as the electorate we can hold the government accountable for fulfilling their promises. Not voting may be a choice, but it's one with little meaning. If you don't vote you don't have a social voice in my opinion.
Caz, completely agree with you on our right to vote. The suffrage movement did more than just give women the vote. When women gained the vote it was still under the conditions that applied already, which was; you were a landowner worth at least £10 and of a certain financial and preferably social standing and had to be above 30 (I think). So when women gained the vote, it was actually a restricted number of upper class women who could then vote. However, this step then led to the expansion of the electorate roll among men and within a couple of decades we had a universal electorate, with all those in Britain over a certain age legally able to vote.
The suffrage movement gave men the ability to vote as well. So we shouldn't squander it
Apologies for the history lesson
