I didn’t go to university but almost everyone I know did, and with no exceptions whatsoever I honestly cannot see what the point was. They were all qualified and equipped for the positions they hold when they left school – the three years spent at university were just three years of boozing and bullsh***ing funded by the taxes of people who had the actual gumption to remove themselves from the playpen of education and get a job as soon as legally possible.
