Thanks to everyone who voted Tory at the last election – you’ve just killed the opportunity of a university education for my children and tens of thousands like them.
No, really, thanks.
And as VicViper says in the Comments section:
The Tories and LibDems aren’t just making “cuts”, they are dismantling entire swathes of public services. However, in the case of Higher Education it is a public service that the rich actually use, so their tactic seems to be to limit access to those with wealth.
Academic merit is a thing of the past, it seems.
