The fact that they also discriminate against Glaswegians makes them an example of best practice to all right-thinking people.

I don't see anything wrong with a university seeking to ensure local applicants are favoured.
Me neither.
And even if it was a nationality thing, why the bloody hell shouldn't a Scottish university give preference to Scottish students.

It's funny really, in my day you usually chose a uni as far from where you lived as possible. Still, Edinburgh was, and continues to be a, highly desirable university with a very good reputation. It can afford to prioritise and still maintain its standards.

Are Jock uni's still "free"?
STUDENT FEES (2009-10)
England: £3,225 p.a.
N. Ireland: £3,225 p.a.
Scotland: free to Scots, £1,775 to other UK
Wales: £1,285 to the Welsh, £3,225 to other UK
Students from elsewhere in the EU pay the same as those locally
Those from outside the EU pay whatever the university charges

That's exactly what it is, the sponging immigrant bastards. :wink:

And it's also interesting that the people doing the whining are from the south coast, despite the clearly stated policy that various under-represented bits of northern England would get preference as well.

Slightly off topic,but did anyone else hear the piece on the Jeremy Vine show yesterday about the B&B owners who are being sued by a gay couple because,as the B&B is an extension of their own home,they felt uncomfortable with 2 gay men sleeping in the same bed.
The owners said they'd have no problem if the gay's got seperate rooms but because the are children there as well,it was going against their christian principles.

The reason people on the south coast are whinging is because we pay most of the taxes that subsidise the ' extras' that the scots get, and please dont trot out the tired old ' north sea oil' myth.
