Secondly, let me explain why all this is here.
We are talking about the future, now mind you I know that there are people out there who would say "well the future is unknown so why bother?". So I must say at first that we are talking about projected futures, based on current information.

The choice is up to you.

11-01-2006 21:45College heads, MPs and councillors are gearing up for a battle against cuts in travel support for sixth-formers amid warnings they will deter thousands of students and ultimately harm the local economy.
Currently, sixth-form and college students aged 16 to 18 can apply for a discounted bus pass, at the cost of £205 for a year. It is free for students whose families are on low incomes. If the subsidy is withdrawn, these students will have to pay more than £400 a year for their bus pass.
