NICK CLEGG ATTACKS OXBRIDGE

leave a comment »

What a laugh! The coalition increases tuition fees to £9,000 and Nick Clegg, Mr. Trustworthy himself then lambasts Oxford and Cambridge for having the audacity to charge £9,000 tuition fees!
Does he think this attack on the institutions he and his fellow conspirators gave the rise to will win him brownie points with students; or with any of us, for that matter?
If, as he claims, the universities can’t decide tuition fees, then who will? And saying they need to open their doors to poorer students is ridiculous. This is only reasonable if the poorer students have the academic ability to study at that level. And if they do then there should be an open door policy irrespective of fees.
But the whole education strategy is designed to see that poorer students- or prospective students- stay that way, with a poorer education to match which will see far fewer at any university.  Nice big pool of uneducated unemployed to hold down wages and keep us in fear of our jobs.
I call for us to stop calling ourselves ‘working class’ and start to use the more accurate ‘mostly unemployed class’.
