“this is why i will never vote,i have 4 children the 3 oldest 26yrs,28yrs and 30yrs have worked in f/t work since they left school my youngest is 18yrs and is at college, left school after staying in school a extra 2 years and has been accepted into stirling universaty unconditional .we are from working class family, we have worked since we left school, now i cant work because off severe arthritis, my daughter feels its very unfair comments on social backgrounding and lowering the universaty standards to allow poorer young adults in,all my children have been brought up you get out of life what you put in, my youngest is the first faichney ever to be accepted into uni and with the sleepless nights and all the hours she has put into her studies she feels its unfair with this decision off cleggs as the students at any universaty have worked hard to get there and putting name tags on social identification is going to cause frictions between students/parents, no one has the right to say anyone in any social background should get into universaty its not that long ago the polititions caused big problems when there wasnt enough places for the students.last year.”
