Given that a first degree is now less 'elite' than a couple of O-levels in the 60/70s what's the point in degrees in the History O' Fart etc.

No fucker benefits, except : the unemployment figures, fuckwit-feminist benefit-bunnies wanting  "degree-level" jobs and University Vice Chancellors.

Read this (if the opening picture isn't too much to bear) and weep:

This country is (has been) royally fucked...from the bottom up this time...

Did your retarded spawn have their clearing application for a BSc in Hairdressing at Eastbourne polytechnic rejected?

The months of July and August are the worst. Every year at work I am forced to listen to nigh-on postmenopausal women pontificate about how their illegitimate brats have been accepted into some fucking godawful polytechnic in Essex, or worse, the University of Lincoln.

The slags in question sit there with a smug look on their chubby fucking faces, awaiting a barrage of praise from their colleagues because their spawn has managed to scrape three A-level D grades.

The cerebrally challenged fruit of their loins are then dispatched in the family Mondeo to incur a lifetime of crippling debt with nothing to show for it afterwards but a third class American Studies degree and liver disease.

Media Studies - the final nail in the coffin of proper degrees.

I agree. The rot set in with Psychology, a pseudo science pedalled by earwigs for the last 100 years.

Oh and Geography of course

I’ve decided to end it all. I lost my sister in the Marchioness disaster at Cannon Street in ‘89. I’m back here now and I’m going to join her at midnight. 

Goodbye William.

If you have anything of value in your record collection, get your next to kin to send them on to me.

This is essentially a giant con, pandering to the parental desire for children to better themselves as a form of social anaesthesia. The rot set in in 1992 when every provincial bus station and leisure centre could start giving out degrees, then they commercialised themselves, doling out courses in The Simpsons and Golf Course Management. It’s a giant Ponzi scheme, and people have rumbled it. If you are doing Maths/IT/Economics at a Russell Group place you’ll be fine moving along the conveyor belt to Canary Wharf. Likewise medicine and dentistry or allied health courses. Everyone else is fucked and would be better off emigrating at 18 or going on The Game.

I’d suggest The Samaritans Frank, but I rather suspect they’d urge you to jump within 5 minutes of talking to you, perhaps signing off with “you are done here”. 

Glug Glug.

Get a new act, sharpish.

Another toxic legacy from the Blair government. Everyone should go to University (therefore we'll give every provincial Polytechnic the cachet of University status; bit like calling a coffee maker a 'Barista',.....sorry, they're another bunch of cunts thrown into the wind tunnel with sharpened anvils come the revolution....where was I? Oh yes....).

Of course, that meant no real social mobility. Give every cunt a degree, no matter how facile or piss-simple and there's no tangible change, except a bunch of numpties hitting the service sector of our economy with an over-developed sense of self-importance and who are going to tell everyone how it's going to be, because they've got a Third in David Beckham Studies from the University of Ashby De La Zouch.

.......except of course, for the smart (by which I mean non-formally educated) cunts.

Suddenly the kid at school who used to shout 'Sausages'! and poke his own faeces with a stick at lunchtime? He's gone off to be a carpenter or a sparky or a plumber and is now raking it in, fleecing the David Beckham Studies redundo's.

Way to fucking go 21st Century Britain!!

Pointless qualifications enticing the academically challenged to go to 'university' instead of being another unemployed statistic fucking up government figures, when they finally do get their BSC in Romulan space craft recognition they'll come out hoping to jump straight into some cushy desk job, only to be disappointed when they're zapping an old toothless battle axes shopping in B&M
