Things the govt does wrong No. 1732538

As if student loans weren't enough of a stupid idea which burden young people with debt at a time when just living is expensive enough, the govt have announced that since 1998, 154 prisoners have been allowed to claim financial support from the student loans company. The total comes to £730,000 which of course is a tiny amount compared to what prisoners have spent on them to keep them in porridge and plasma tvs.

It's typical of this government to let such a fuck up happen. If someone's address is HMP Broadmoor surely someone sorting out the loans and grants could work out they won't be paying much towards their board and lodgings...

I would agree with you but it might end up my next home.
