Fee Fie

Undergraduate tuition fees are in the news again, I see.

Their introduction may or may not have been many things. But it was certainly not the worst thing that the Blair Government ever did.

Nor was increasing them the worst thing that the Lib Dems either facilitated, or did directly, during the Coalition.

You can tell a very great deal about people from how much fuss they make of this issue, in particular.

Not the Work Capability Assessment under New Labour and then the Coalition. Not the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya.

But deferred payment of a proportion of undergraduate tuition fees.
