We can tell how this is going to go, can’t we?

The British Police on Saturday revealed that the man responsible for carrying out the deadly attack in Manchester Arena, purchased the bomb-making materials with student loan money.

Student loans cause terrorism therefore we must have free university.

No one will make the point that a grant can be used to purchase bomb making materials just as effectively.

  1. I take your point, obviously, but this is just another small way in which we are destroying ourselves. When the history is written – if it’s written, because barbarians tend not to write much stuff down – people will wonder why we did this to ourselves.

  2. Bomb making material is quite cheap. This where Spud might have a point. MOAR TAXES!

  3. Interested–Socialism.

    Just that simple.

    Why are murderous imports here? Courtesy of the left.

    Because as Ben Shapiro says : When it comes to destroying Western Civilisation they are both on the same page.

  4. Alternatively it’s hardly worth subsidising education if the students are going to blow themselves up before they finish the course.

  5. One could say its an argument for abolishing universities entirely……………….maybe thats the solution. Decree that anyone who ends up being convicted of terrorism who was either employed by the State or attending a State institution will result in that institution/body being dissolved and all the people in it sacked. The Left like collectivism, how about a bit of collective punishment?

  6. To slightly moderate Jim’s position, if universities were made liable for unpaid student loans they would become far more cautious both as to the courses on offer, and the individuals accepted.

  7. Can’t they just add it ti the Ts and Cs

    “Acts of terrorism will invalidate your next loan application.”

    That ought to fix it.

  8. I thought the islamics understand the concept of blood money. Charging the family and mosque the standard value per life (£5m-ish each, isn’t it?) might concentrate a few minds too.

  9. Great – so which spiritual leader would be billed for my student loan? And how to collect from a deity…?

  10. “Student loans cause terrorism therefore we must have free university.”

    But if you make Uni free then the student terrorists won’t have to pay fees with their loans. And they can still use their grants to buy bombs and guns.

  11. ‘The British Police on Saturday revealed that the man responsible for carrying out the deadly attack in Manchester Arena, purchased the bomb-making materials with student loan money.’

    Would you feel better little girl if he had bought them with money from a job?

    Money is not a scarce commodity. Where he got the money is irrelevant. Had he not had alleged student loan money, he’d have never gotten money and would have never done the deed? That’s the silly inference.

    This is the same fallacy as gun control in the U.S. There are 150,000,000 guns in the U.S. The Left thinks that there can be a certain set of laws which would make it impossible to get a gun. The naivety is breathtaking.
