Day and night, the British people of Northern Ireland are undermined in so many little ways. Consider this;
Some sixth form school pupils from Northern Ireland who want to go to university in Scotland are being told they can qualify for free tuition, if they have an Irish passport. Scottish students have been granted free tuition and European Union citizens will benefit from the same measure, but not students from other UK countries. English, Welsh and Northern Ireland students would have to pay fees of up to £9,000 a year. However, the dual nationality open to students in Northern Ireland has revealed a loophole.
1. Scotland is FORCED to offer free tuition to students from outside the UK, it is not a choice as the BBC report indicates. A little more reporting accuracy would help, BBC.
2. This is a nice little piece of propaganda aimed at subverting the identity of all those Northern Ireland Unionist students who prefer to go to University in Scotland as opposed to the republicanised Universities in Northern Ireland.
3. Maybe ALL local NI students should take advantage of this deal, get this little Irish passports, and ALL go to University in Scotland? This would have the dual benefit of bankrupting Queen’s/NUU/Jordanstown AND causing Alex Salmond an enormous financial problem.
We’re all Irish now, mon.
