"Truth seldom is pleasant; it is almost invariably bitter. A loss of courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days..." Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Commencement address at Harvard University , June 8, 1978

It has been revealed today that elite universities are openly discriminating against competent British students as they reject them left, right and centre, while continuing to recruit foreign students, who are paying up to £20,000 a year to study here.

Respected institutions such as Edinburgh, Nottingham, Liverpool, Cardiff, York and Exeter are taking advantage of unjust and idiotic rules which strictly limit the amount of British students while placing no such restrictions on the amount of foreign students.

Ministers disgracefully admitted that up to a staggering 3,500 British candidates with three straight A’s in their A levels will be rejected, with a further tens of thousands with decent grades who previously would have been accepted with open arms, will now be turned down without a second thought.

While the Universities do have a role to play in these disgusting rules, and are using it as a cash cow to help fund their institution, the government, and previous governments are at fault for putting in place rules, which will result in heavy fines for any institution that doesn’t comply.

We at the National Front believe that there should be heavy reform of university admissions targets and fines which currently restrict the recruitment of British students. Last year alone, up to 60 universities were fined a huge total of £60 million (£3,778 per place for 4,235 ) for recruiting too many students. University bosses have said that these fines have left admission staff extremely cautious, with many under recruiting and leaving places for British students unfilled.

This is completely unacceptable, and should be stopped as soon as possible. It should not be allowed and would not be allowed under a National Front government, that while universities have stopped recruiting British candidates, are leaving open spaces specifically for foreign students, right up until the day before the course starts.

There is nothing left for young people in these grim days. The British have been sold down the river. The UK government are always openly investing in the rest of the world. We Must put our people first…
