New Ed Sec voted to end help for poor kids to get to college and buy books

I have long lived by the maxim ‘If the Tories want it, we shouldn’t; if they don’t want it, we should.’ This seems to bear out that motto.

Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

Way back in 2011 – before she thought she would ever be Education Secretary – Michael Gove’s replacement Nicky Morgan voted to end ‘Education Maintenance Allowance‘.

This was money granted to help the poorest kids pay for their transport to college or buy books.

It also helped kids from rural areas who had to travel a long distance to get to college:

Obviously, the new Education Secretary’s own parents were rich enough to buy her a private education.

Which is probably why she also voted to triple university fees too:

It seems some people may be celebrating Michael Gove’s demotion from Education Secretary a little bit too early.
