Student endowments

Didn't we all cheer when Student Endowments were abolished?

Now some post-Graduate students have found that their deferred Endowment payments have become due and payable immediately.

Ignore the gibbering noises from the Labour spokesperson, but the underlying principle of almost no notice of the debt falling due, and being due to be paid by those just starting in work, often on very low salaries, and you have a recipe for hardship.

Worse than that, an easy political 'win' has just been turned into a mean-spirited 'loss' of all those directly affected, and their families.

Is there no understanding of the political implication of these sort of decisions?
