another reason to leave the EU

Original to Daily Express
The story about the Student Loans Company having to track down foreign students doesn’t just represent another reason for leaving the E.U., it represents a high degree of incompetence in that organisation and a high level of unfairness towards both UK students and the UK taxpayer. UK students can not default on their loans, because their identities and home addresses are tied down solid in the bureaucracy that binds UK taxpayers. Lacking these ties on foreign students, any reasonable organisation would ensure that loans are only given out to people, who can be equally tied down, through the bureaucratic bonds of their own countries, or by seeking guarantor’s for the loans. I would assume that the parents of UK students are effectively treated as guarantor’s. Having ensured that these defaulter’s could be traced, then the other aspect of EU legislation should be stepping in. The Daily Express has printed stories of UK citizen’s being tried, in their absence, by foreign courts. In some cases, UK  citizens have been incorrectly identified, yet, still, our Police have seized, imprisoned and parcelled them off to these foreign courts for disposition. Why are we owed £50 million, when EU Law is alleged to be reciprocal. British courts should demand that our EU “partners” arrest these miscreants and made to repay these sums. Of course such nastiness could be avoided, if we were allowed a democratic vote on a Brexit.
Printed version
Let’s see tougher rules on loans to foreign students
REVELATIONS about the Student Loans Company having to track down foreign students don’t just highlight another reason for leaving the EU (“Foreign students owe £50m for loans”, May 13).
They also represent a high level of unfairness towards both UK students and the UK taxpayer.
Our students cannot default on their loans because their identities and home addresses are tied down solid in the bureaucracy that binds UK taxpayers.
Lacking these ties on foreign students, any reasonable organisation would ensure that loans are given out only to people who can be equally tied down, through the bureaucratic bonds of their own countries or by seeking guarantors for the loans.
Why are we owed £50million, much of it from EU students, when EU law is supposed to be reciprocal? British courts should demand that our EU `partners’ arrest these miscreants and make them repay these sums.
