    Private eyes to track down EU students who owe £50m in loans - Education News - Education - The Independent

    And the Pro EU Statist BBC take on this Story

    If a student from a low average income EU country does a UK degree on loans, can he or she go back home and pay nothing back until they are earning over the £21,000 pa repayment threshold?

    "The Kosovo Serbs will almost certainly resist in a region bristling with weapons and deep animosity, and were already demanding a referendum on the deal.

    In exchange for limited autonomous powers for the Serb north, Serbia agreed not to block Kosovo's path to eventual membership of the EU - a concession Kosovo hailed as recognition of independence.

    "This agreement is de-jure, legal recognition by Serbia, which will open the way for Kosovo to join international organizations," Kosovo Prime Minister Hashim Thaci, who led a guerrilla insurgency against Milosevic's forces in 1998-99, told reporters.

    Serbia says it will never recognize as sovereign a territory it considers the cradle of the Serb nation."
