Dear Liberal Democrats,

This open letter is posted on this blog to express my outrage at how Liberal Democrat MPs seem willing to tear up their pledge not to raise tuition fees.

In stark contrast to the claim that budgetary cuts are necessary in order to protect future generations from the consequences of government debt, this shifts the burden of funding higher education onto the next generation.

At the same time, it makes that generation pay the price of the UK now having the lowest public spending on higher education among comparable OECD countries.

I am appalled at this action by Nick Clegg, Vince Cable, other Liberal Democrat MPs and their coalition partners.

Liberal Democratic consciences – and your desperate attempts to cling onto power – will not be saved by abstention. Only a vote against the proposals will do.


Dr Chris Allen
