Lib Dem’s Hot Air to Fund University Places?

Our local MP has declared, “I have been a campaigner on tuition fees since I was an undergraduate and I campaigned on it in the last election. I have not seen anything to change my mind.”

“Fine words butter no parsnips” say some, and if hot air could fund a university place then our MP has produced a department with his latest press release.

The daily reality of coalition government is that it is dividing the Lib Dems into their “grown-up” and “infantile” wings. One set are working with the Tories because the country was left in a mess by Labour, the others are in it with ‘Red Ed’ in denial over the economic reality of a country left broke by reckless overspending.

Our MP does not offer an alternative source of funding for higher education, only the siren song of an out-of-touch politician addicted to spending taxpayers’ money. I hope the next press release has substance for debate.
