It doesn’t add up

York Press: It doesn’t add up It doesn’t add up

I WONDER how the coalition parties, and specifically the Lib Dems, feel now that the evidence shows that the economic cost of the new tuition fee system (with fees at £9,000) is likely to exceed the system it replaced (where fees were £3,000).

Like so many Coalition policies (for example, the bedroom tax and the benefit cap), it is proven as not only ideologically driven but also economically illiterate.

Broken promises and now a broken system.

I don't suppose they care. Certainly the MP's themselves are fairly wealthy so their own kids can easily afford tuition fees, and at the next election they will spin it to make it look like a) it was a good thing or b) it wasn't their fault. More than likely they will count on their loyal voters to vote for them regardless.
