I'm disgusted by this. Locked up and they paying for the privilege. I went to uni many moons ago and first year was amazing. These students (and parents) need to leave and go home, and refuse to pay for fees. If uni for them then wait til a layer date. Rumours they will be told to not leave for Christmas is disgusting. Imagine your child locked in their pokey student digs for however long. I'd be there in a shot hauling them out ! Who the f does sturgeon think she is?! Sick to back teeth of her and her meglomaniac approach to life. She is not the parent, no one would slam my kid and lock them in without a fight. These poor kids, being blamed for outbreak when the only fault they had was relinquish for a dodgy test and be human. I curse the houses of all those in Scottish power. Curse the lot of them if they don't stand against this . Parents, go get your frikkin kids you wimps and tell the unis to shove it up their backsides.
I could not believe this when I saw it. Un-Fricken-Believeable. This is NOT a police state! I'm a mature student myself, but in England. I'm not back there yet but shall be getting my own place. No-way should anyone be putting themselves into student accommo, because you'll be under certain house arrest by xmas. I don't know how they will even try and enforce this, especially the claims of "monitoring private accommodation". Who the **** are they to say that?
