This morning Nick Clegg was asked five times to rule out a further rise in tuition fees – and he refused to do so. William Hague also said that the Tories have not ruled out another rise in tuition fees.
Five years ago the Lib Dems promised to scrap tuition fees – and then they raised them three times higher. Now they are getting ready to raise them again.
Analysis of the Tories' extreme spending plans means that they are poised to increase tuition fees yet again – to £11,500 per year.
Labour will cut tuition fees from £9,000 to £6,000. And if we fail in that task, Ed Miliband has said he will not stand for office as Prime Minister in 2020. Because there should be consequences when people’s trust is let down.
