Student debt may be sold off

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/6453499.stm

According to the Beeb, Gordon Brown is planning to sell off the right to collect at least some of the estimated £16bn students owe to the government. Why do I have visions of the debt being bought by some evil parasite like Smallweed in Bleak House? Doubtless for people who don’t pay up it’ll be bailiffs galore.
