Kerre Woodham: Government targets good guys in student loan battle

41 comments

Why the hell is the Government targeting graduates who are living and working in this country and repaying their loans?

Why on Earth aren't they training their guns on the people who are the real problem: the overseas loan defaulters, the oldies who have no intention of paying back their loans ever, and the serial borrowers?

It's gutless to hike up the rates of repayment on those who are the good guys here.

How about having the gumption and backbone to set the dogs on those bludgers who've taken the money and run?

There are ways and means of recovering the money from expat graduates - the Government just has to have the backbone to do so.

Punishing the good guys is sending the wrong message.
