I see from the news that JC was given a one minute standing ovation from his Labour colleagues in Parliament today, many of whom wanted him out last year saying he wasn't fit for purpose.

Nice to know we can add hypocrisy to the list of Labour MPs qualities that will make things better for us all...... Wink

Why is someone admitting they were wrong hypocrisy?

If Theresa May had admitted she was wrong over fox hunting, dementia tax and hard Brexit she might have woin a majority.

There are lots not admitting anything.

But they aren't necessarily wrong the ones who don't think he's fit to lead.  Shameless, self preserved yes but Labour never won anything they are still 50 seats behind.

Awesome authentic guy with a political talent towering anything else available, general public will never accept him though, too Tory, too posh and too rich....

Pretty shocking that he would pose for a family photo underneath such an abysmal apostrophe.

Financial times analysis of the election, people in poor health and leavers swung to the Tories. People with degrees even the over 50's  swung Labour.

Not really surprising really.

The old stole the future of the young last year. The young repaid them by safeguarding their pensions and fuel allowances.

Tough one for universities innit.

I'm sure  big % of uni degrees are just a waste of money, but there is the chance to make a huge success of uni and everyone has the right to that experience.

Teachers get it so hard over this, truth is most teachers don't have a clue about how to get a job with a Geography degree - and why would they? No disrespect at all to teachers I think they are great and massively under-valued they are thrown into the deep end here and end up pushing some pre-made, generic agenda as opposed to offering good advice to individual kids.

Let's not forget the vast majority of 17-18yr olds dont have a clue about this stuff and just want to get pissed.

Arbboy's due diligence idea is a good one, this was over 10 yrs ago so IDK what it's like now but if that was built into the uni-application process that sounds like it would be a good tool.

Most importantly though... HI LONGY !!!

I think this will become Tory policy. If you get 10 points (do you still get points for grades at Alevel?) or whatever at A Level, you get free tuition fees and a maintenance grant at university.

That wasn't what I was thinking from what arbboy wrote Kieth.

I was thinking more that part of the (ucas?) process is you present some sort of due dilligence on the un i you're going to, the field you're studying and what sort of prospects you believe will yield from it.

IDK anythign about this stuff though, so pretty unqualified to even type on a gambling forum about it! Any teachers on Blonde? would be interesting to hear views?

Not a bad idea at least it would force the education system to think about what they are pushing people into.
Like someone else said at 18 it's dam hard to be making life defining choices. idk about you lot but at 18 I justed wanted to chase girls and have some beers.

To be honest I would like to see more support for practical based skills degrees.
Like having the bursaries for nurses was a great idea. Made it a much more appealing choice for people and supported them in a career that benefits all.
Removing that was a terrible move from the government.

This annoys me actually. The press always dive in about u turns, I have no problem with them. Sometimes you need to reconsider and change things, that's reality and a good way to do things necause nobody is perfect,  just lay out the reasons why you have reconsidered x and it's cool if the reason is valid.

I hear ya, for me it was sort of implied that not going to Uni would basically be dropping out of school, no other options were really presented and I know a good whack of my friends never even considered alternative was viable. Uni is fantastic so not knocking it but it's expensive to put someone through uni and if they are just going for the sake of it...could defo save some money and give a better experience to the student.

Easy to say isn't it, how inefficient everything is sat on my sofa.
